During Wednesday's Trump town hall on MSNBC, Republican front-runner Donald Trump seemed quite stumped by host Mika Brzezinski's description of a "certain" candidate whom he thought sounded pretty familiar.
"I'd like to describe a candidate to you," Brzezinski began:
The candidate is considered a political outsider by all the pundits. He’s tapping into all the anger of the voters, delivers a populist message. He believes everyone in the country should have healthcare. He advocates for hedge fund managers to pay higher taxes. He’s drawing thousands of people at his rallies and bringing in a lot of new voters to the political process, and he’s not beholden to any super PAC.
Who am I describing?
"Or any special interests or any donors," Trump interjected. "You're describing Donald Trump," he said confidently.
"Actually," Brzezinski replied, "I was describing Bernie Sanders."
"Oh!" Trump said surprised. "That's good."
Trump tried to recover from this embarrassing slip by saying he shares one common view with Sanders: "He knows that our country is being ripped off big-league -- big-league -- on trade. The problem is, he can't do anything about it."
Trump fan or not, that's a tremendous blunder for the leading Republican to hear a distinctly socialist description and think it's referring to yourself.
