Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders went on the attack against Donald Trump during an appearance on MSNBC Monday, labeling the President as a "racist, sexist, homophobe and religious bigot."

Sanders' ridiculous comments came in response to MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell asking the Vermont Senator about President Trump's declaration that he planned to live tweet the first Democratic debate next week.

“Look, he can tweet all that he wants to tweet, but let me just say this,” Sanders said. “You have a president who, despite what one of his supporters mentioned a moment ago, is, in fact, a pathological liar, he is a racist, he is a sexist, he is a homophobe, and he is a religious bigot.”

Sanders went on to accuse the President of lying to voters about the realities of his tax policy and budget plans as they relate to health care.

“I suspect that tonight in his speech, he will not tell them that he tried to throw 32 million people off of health care, that his last budget called for a trillion and a half dollar cut over 10 years to Medicaid, massive cuts to Medicare, billions in cuts to social security," Sanders said.

WIBC host Tony Katz offered a response to Senator Sanders during Wednesday's edition of the Popcorn Moment.
