Bernie Sanders Is Warming Up To Hillary Clinton, DNC After Data Breach

Dustin Murrell

Donald Trump has set his target on Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton. But Clinton's opposition, Senator Bernie Sanders, came to the Secretary's defense in his most recent commentary on Trump, the Republican presidential candidate front-runner. This is the latest example of Bernie Sanders coming to the defense of Hillary Clinton, as the data breach controversy is quickly becoming a thing of the past.

"Even a race to Obama... she was gonna beat Obama. I don't know who would be worse. I don't know, how could it be worse? But she was going to beat -- she was favored to win -- and she got schlonged. She lost. I mean, she lost."
"I know where she went. It's disgusting, I don't want to talk about it. No, it's too disgusting! Don't say it, it's disgusting. Let's not talk; we want to be very, very straight up."

"I don't know how to break this to you: Donald Trump is very upset... I don't know what his relationship with women has been like, but he has discovered that women go to the bathroom -- and it's very upsetting for him... I've got to be honest with you. I've got to lay it out on the table: I also went to the bathroom."

And still, Bernie Sanders continues to warm up to Hillary Clinton and the DNC. He has yet to attack Clinton in any way other than acknowledging their political differences. In almost every way, Sanders is running a campaign that is the polar opposite of the Trump campaign. Rather than intentionally distancing himself from the other candidates and his party as a whole, Sanders remains very cordial. The anxiety felt by the left when Sanders began using the word "socialism" has essentially past.

Having avoided major damage over the data breach controversy, Bernie Sanders continues to gain momentum against Hillary Clinton. But thanks to Donald Trump's inflammatory remarks, the gap between Sanders and Hillary may have shrunk ever so slightly.
