Donald Trump: Bernie Sanders let Hillary Clinton ‘off the hook’ in debate


Donald Trump said Wednesday that Hillary Clinton won Tuesday night’s Democratic debate because her opponents didn’t strongly challenge her.

ct-bernie-sanders-donald-trump-megyn-kelly-per-001Trump told the hosts of the MSNBC show Morning Joe that the other contenders “should have been hitting Hillary hard” but did not.

Trump said Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders let Clinton “off the hook” with his statement that “the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails.”

Clinton grinned at Sanders’ exclamation, which followed Clinton’s own defense of her use of a private email server for government work.

Trump said Sanders is “losing badly if you look nationally” and as a result, should feel compelled to “go a lot stronger.”

Trump, who had promised his Twitter followers he would live-tweet the debate, told the hosts he restrained himself in his comments.

On the show, however, Trump dismissed the other three candidates — former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, former Sen. Jim Webband former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee: “It’s not going to happen.”

Trump also weighed in on a FOX News poll that shows a tie between himself and Republican candidate Ben Carson. He said he and Carson “get along well,” but “we will see if that continues.” Carson and Trump will debate again on Oct. 28 at the next Republican debate in Boulder, Colo.

Trump’s Republican rival, Jeb Bush, gave his take on the debate on Fox’s Fox & Friends and echoed Trump’s sentiment on the candidates’ reluctance to “go after” Clinton.

“There’s [been] an FBI investigation, she hasn’t been forthcoming … I would have taken her to the task on that,” Bush said.

    Why didn’t someone ask Killary about the $6B missing from the State dept Funds???
    The other candidates were told to not be hard on Hillary before the debate started.

      Scary thought, but can you imagine her as potus? Then secular parents could use her as an example role model for their kids. See even the president doesn’t have to tell the truth, so why should you?

    The demoncratic party is corrupt to the core along with the main stream media.

    Any other time I’m glad I don’t watch the Clinton News Network as we watched the CNN conspiracy in action during last night debate, if you want to call it that. It was so obvious that two or more persons conspired in secret for the evil purpose of fraudulently making Hil-liar-ry look good. Other than the morally bankrupt talking head reporters and faux journalists, the polls indicate otherwise. It’s not just Barack Hussein Obama that’s causing America to hit rock bottom, it is the corrupt main stream news media that is allowing him to accomplish it. Now they are trying to set up Hil-liar-ry to follow suit. We the People are not going to buy that garbage any longer.

    Well, it didn’t change my opinion of the anything but truth telling Hitlery. She is that sorry that she needs someone (Barnie Old Fart ) to change the subject. Any two year old could see right through that farce. Star Wars? “these aren’t the droids you’re looking for, move along”.
