Trump Mistakes Bernie Sanders for Himself

sanders-trump
Peas in an oligarchical collectivist pod.

The watered down national socialist and the watered down communist are so much alike that they can’t even tell themselves apart:

Consider a political outsider who is tapping into voter anger, delivering a populist message and drawing raucous thousands to rallies. He wants the hedge fund managers to pay more taxes and argues that there should be health care for everyone. Sound familiar?

“You’re describing Donald Trump,” the Republican candidate confidently said during MSNBC’s exclusive town hall Wednesday night in Charleston, South Carolina. Except “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski had her mind on someone else.

“Actually, I was describing Bernie Sanders,” said Brzezinski, who moderated the event along with Joe Scarborough. Her exchange with Trump perfectly encapsulates just how unusual 2016 is: The GOP front-runner actually has quite a lot in common with a leading candidate from the opposing party.

Trump responded by sheepishly admitting that he and Sanders are similar on trade, before characteristically dismissing Sanders with an insult, the same “maniac” put-down that he has used against Ted Cruz.

On tips from Varla and Torcer. Hat tip: Twitchy.

    The worst part about this…

    “You mean Bernie, but it sounds like me huh? Well we both recognize the problems, but I have different ways of fixing them”

    …thats all it would have taken.

    But nope, Trump is too much of a narcissist. In his mind, if someone is talking they must be talking about him. Its always all about him to Trump

    The people always have some champion whom they set over them and nurse into greatness. This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector.

    How bad could it possibly be to have a narcissist who sees himself as the end all, be all of every situation, who morphs every time the situation changes and who doesn’t follow the Constitution?

    Wait . . .

    the main difference is that Trump believes in the people to save themselves, Bernie believes in the Government to save them

    How do you figure?

    Just yesterday he said he likes the mandate and described Medicare as his healthcare plan. Hes endlessly said Govt should pay to help make sure people aren’t dying in the streets as they supposedly are now (despite Reagan fixing that problem in about 1984) – so while sure, he says hes against Obamacare but hes constantly describing Obamacare when he tries to give hid ideas to fix healthcare. (And lets not forget his decades old love and push for eventual single-payer)

    But thats par for the corse. Really, Trumps entire platform is “the people who run Big Government are stupid, only I am smart enough to do it right”

    Ive never heard him talk about personal responsibility (he even complained when Scalia talked about it) and there are endless examples of him saying Big Government should be the one making choices for people; most notably Eminent Domainand Feds keeping control over the States Land.

    And thats without even getting into his personal business, which has been 40+ years of getting Big Government to prop him up

    Id suggest listening to the 3rd hour of the Steve Deface show last night. The man who likely knows Reagan best, his biographer Craig Shirley, was on. When asked which of the candidates understood Reagan best, he said by far Trump was the worst and went on to explain that he is actually extremely similar to Nixon with a Big Government will solve the problems mentality.

    So what your perception is does not seem to match reality, at all. Youd probably be best served spending a bit of time paying attention to his words to catch what youre missing but a true expert on the material is able to spot so clearly
