Donald Trump Mocks Hillary Clinton’s Loss And Gives Bernie Sanders A Nickname

With Donald Trump coming off a landslide victory in the West Virginia primary, he mocked Hillary Clinton for losing the state to Bernie Sanders. Trump and Clinton are currently in the lead in votes and are expected to get the nominations for their respective parties; therefore, the Republican frontrunner saved most of his insults for Hillary.

“Big wins in West Virginia and Nebraska. Get ready for November — Crooked Hillary, who is looking very bad against Crazy Bernie, will lose!” Trump tweeted on Wednesday morning.

Donald Trump has used unflattering nicknames as a political strategy throughout his campaign, such as “low energy” Jeb Bush, “Little Marco,” “Lying Ted,” “Crooked Hillary,” and now “Crazy Sanders.” Trump, who is no stranger to media relations, often uses these nicknames to entertain his supporters and emphasize his criticisms.

Bernie Sanders is not short on confidence and the “crazy” nickname could indicate that Trump feels that the Vermont Senator has a shot. Several polls have indicated that Bernie Sanders beats Trump more decisively than Clinton.

Despite the poor odds, some political analysts believe that if Sanders continues his winning streak, he could turn superdelegates he needs to his side. During a speech in Oregon, where Hillary is currently in the lead, Sanders assures his supporters that he is in the race to win.

“Let me be as clear as I can be: We are in this campaign to win the Democratic nomination,” he said.
