Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
Stephanopoulos: omg we're in New
Hampshire where the Democrats just
a had a debate!
Stephanopoulos: oh boy the candidates
Karl: omg Teams Sanders
stole some of Clinton's data
Sanders: I apologize
Clinton: let's move on
Karl: it was totally crazy George
Stephanopoulos: they clashed on
foreign policy too!
Sanders: we're not the world's police!
Clinton: if we leave the middle east there
will be a vacuum and the last time a Hoover
was in charge it was a disaster
Stephanopoulos: they fought on
Sanders: Wall Street ain't gonna like me!
Clinton: everyone should love me!
Stephanopoulos: oh some other
guy was there too
O'Malley: you both love guns
Stephanopoulos: they all went after Trump
O'Malley: Trump is a fascist!
Sanders: he hates Muslims!
Clinton: he's the top recruiter for ISIS!
[ break ]
Stephanopoulos: welcome Donald Trump
Trump: nice to talk to you Jim
Stephanopoulos: Hillary says
you're ISIS' top recruiter
Trump: that's not true but if I were an ISIS
recruiter I would definitely be the top guy
because I can sell to anybody
Stephanopoulos: I see
Trump: she lied!
Stephanopoulos: so it's not true?
Trump: she just made it up!
Stephanopoulos: Sanders said
you called Mexicans rapists
Trump: also not true - I love the Mexicans!
Stephanopoulos: so Sanders also lied?
Trump: politicians all lie – that's why
I don't like them
Stephanopoulos: but you lie all the time
Trump: that's not true!
Stephanopoulos: that's also a lie
Trump: no it's not
Stephanopoulos: no one cheered on
9/11 but you keep saying it happened
Trump: yes it did – it happened
all over the world
Stephanopoulos: but not in America
Trump: there were articles about
allegations about it therefore it's
a fact that I saw it on television
Stephanopoulos: you're lying again right now
Trump: don't tell me that you little pipsqueak
Stephanopoulos: you admire Vladimir
Putin but he invaded Ukraine
Trump: who gives a fuck about Ukraine?
Stephanopoulos: I care
Trump: Obama doesn't like
Putin which hurts America
Stephanopoulos: I see
Trump: I love Putin – frankly he's very nice
Stephanopoulos: fair enough
Trump: I accept his praise of
me on behalf of all of America
Stephanopoulos: so you believe
world leaders need to get along for
the good of America
Trump: exactly – this is why Obama is
a bad President – he is not friends with Putin
Stephanopoulos: but you have alienated
at least two of our closest allies -
Britain and Germany
Trump: fuck you twerp
Stephanopoulos: could you elaborate on that
Trump: Obama is foreign-born Muslim
who loves Muslims who all hate us and
want to attack us and kill us
Stephanopoulos: got it
Trump: Muslims flew planes
into the World Trade Center!
Stephanopoulos: we all know what happened
Trump: all their neighbors and families
and friends knew what they were going
to do and did not nothing
Trump: George you're a politically correct
weasel and because of people like
you we'll all get killed
Stephanopoulos: Putin murders journalists
Trump: who cares – the U.S. murders
lots of people too!
Stephanopoulos: who does the U.S. murder?
Trump: Hillary Clinton murdered
people in Libya!
Stephanopoulos: that's not murder
Trump: be fair to Putin – how do you
know Vlad killed anyone?
Stephanopoulos: Mitt Romney said he did
Trump: that guy is a loser
Trump: what's the proof my buddy
Vlad killed anybody?
Stephanopoulos: there are allegations
Trump: he hasn't killed anyone you liar!
Stephanopoulos: how do you know that?
Trump: he's always denied it!
Stephanopoulos: oh okay then
Trump: he wasn't caught with a
gun or anything!
Stephanopoulos: what killing has
Trump: Bush and Cheney murdered
lots of people!
Trump: Bush empowered Iran
and created ISIS!
Stephanopoulos: that checks out
Trump: then we killed more people in Libya!
Stephanopoulos: okay but
Trump: the last Republican President was
incompetent and stupid and he ran our
country into the ground
Stephanopoulos: are you saying there's a
moral equivalence with Russia and the U.S.?
Trump: leave Putin alone! He's a great guy!
Stephanopoulos: you seem to determined
to defend Vladimir Putin
Trump: he totally denied it!
Stephanopoulos: who has
Trump: George W. Bush murdered
lots of American soldiers
Stephanopoulos: that's quite a claim
Trump: we should just take the oil!
Stephanopoulos: I see
Trump: we're run by people
who don't have a clue
Stephanopoulos: arguably true
Trump: those idiots want to get us
stuck in a stupid war in the Middle
East – what morons!
Stephanopoulos: what would you do about ISIS?
Trump: invade the middle east and
stay there until we take all their oil!
Stephanopoulos: problem solved
Trump: Iran took Iraq's oil – it belongs to us!
Stephanopoulos: I'll just point out
Iran is backed by your friend Putin
Trump: Iran is backed by us because
we're going to lift sanctions on Iran
Stephanopoulos: you're referring
to the nuclear deal
Trump: we empowered Iran –
Russia is not empowering Iran!
Stephanopoulos: that's another lie
Trump: with $150 billion they can
buy all the nukes they want
Stephanopoulos: I can't tell if
you love Russia or not
Trump: we have empowered
Iran much more than Russia
Stephanopoulos: you cannot possibly
be fucking serious
Trump: we didn't even get our prisoners back!
Stephanopoulos: Russia was part of that deal
Trump: because they're smart
and we're dumb
Stephanopoulos: all right
Trump: they're selling Iran these
beautiful missiles – really classy stuff
Stephanopoulos: it's our fault Russia
is selling missiles to Iran?
Trump: of course!
Stephanopoulos: for real?
Trump: if I was Russia I would
have done that deal too!
Stephanopoulos: thanks for coming Donald
Trump: fuck you loser

Stephanopoulos: welcome Senator Sanders
Sanders: glad to be here David
Stephanopoulos: Donald Trump
called you out
Sanders: I think he's a pathological liar
Stephanopoulos: strong words
Sanders: he said he saw it people in
New Jersey cheering on television
Sanders: they archive stuff on tv right?
Stephanopoulos: I believe so
Sanders: so we know it never
happened and he keep saying it did
and that's a pathology
Sanders: he called Mexicans criminals and rapists
Stephanopoulos: sort of
Sanders: people have legitimate fears of terrorism
Sanders: and he's blaming Muslims
which is terrible scapegoating
Stephanopoulos: then why is doing so well?
Sanders: he's a demagogue
Stephanopoulos: a buit
Sanders: he wants to keep poor
people down and play on fear of Muslims
Stephanopoulos: how do you combat that?
Sanders: explain to poor people this billionaire
is abusing their fears to give their
money to rich people
Stephanopoulos: what about the data breach
Sanders: this was not the first time
Stephanopoulos: do you have any evidence
Clinton took your information
Sanders: no but you never know
Stephanopoulos: you believe the DNC is
trying to sabotage your campaign
Sanders: what other word would you use?
Stephanopoulos: I dunno
Sanders: it was a total overreaction!
Stephanopoulos: I see
Sanders: they should have met with

bicker about who took information from who
Stephanopoulos: how will you pay
for free college for everyone?
Sanders: tax Wall Street
Sanders: we're going to build bridges
and roads by taxing offshore corporations
Stephanopoulos: and expand health care
Sanders: yes and have paid family leave
Stephanopoulos: how do you pay for it?
Sanders: tax everyone $1.61
Stephanopoulos: how are you different
on foreign policy from Clinton?
Sanders: I disagree on no-fly zone in Syria
