Sen. Sanders on Trump: ‘I Think He Is a Pathological Liar’

‘I think the more people see, the less support he will have’

MITCHELL: “Donald Trump was on your turf last night in Burlington. What’s your reaction to his performance, what you have heard about? I know you’re on the road and can’t watch everything but -- and the way he treated protesters, including your supporters, in Burlington?”
SANDERS: “Well, the idea that you would be running for president and the idea that you would only allow people to come into your meetings who support you, and if they are thinking about supporting you, or if they don’t support you and they want to hear you, the idea that they can’t come in is something that I don’t think a presidential candidate should do. I think also, Andrea, the more people get to understand what Trump is about -- and by the way, I don’t say this thing lightly. I think he is a pathological liar. I think he claims to have seen as you know, thousands of Muslims celebrating the destruction of the twin towers on 9/11. He saw it on television. Only problem was, it was never on television. No one else ever saw it on television, never happened; or the idea of saying that Bernie Sanders wants to raise taxes by 90 percent. Total lie. Not the case at all. But I think when people understand this is a guy, a billionaire who wants to give huge, huge tax breaks to his fellow billionaires, who doesn’t want to raise the minimum wage, who said in a Republican debate he thinks wages are too high in America, that he thinks global warming, climate change is a hoax invented by the Chinese. I don't know where that came from."
