Bernie Sanders Explains to Colbert Why Trump Is No George H.W. Bush
Senator Bernie Sanders is one of the many progressives “seriously considering” a run for the presidency in 2020. And he took one step closer to that eventuality on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Thursday night.
Ostensibly, Sanders was there to promote his latest book, Where We Go from Here: Two Years in the Resistance, but really he was there to pump up his base.
Asked how he’s feeling after the midterm elections, Sanders answered, “A lot better now than before the midterms. Democrats won 40 seats, now control the House, won several governors’ seats and several hundred seats in state legislatures all over the country. So I think, as I recall, Trump said this election was about him. It was, he lost, that’s a good thing.”
