*Donald Trump turned his bluster toward Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Tuesday, saying the Democratic presidential candidate was “weak” for allowing Black Lives Matter activists to commandeer the mic during his speech last weekend.
“That would never happen to me,” the GOP presidential candidate told a crowd of some 2,800 supporters in Michigan. “I thought that was disgusting,” he added. “That showed such weakness, the way he was taken away by two young women — the microphone. They just took the whole place over.”
Although Trump conceded one thing in common with Sanders — “He’s getting the biggest crowds and I’m getting the biggest crowds.” — the real estate mogul repeated that he wouldn’t have stepped back and let the women talk. “Believe me,” he said, “that’s not going to happen to Trump.”
The Black Lives Matter activists interrupted Sanders as he began a speech discussing Social Security and Medicare before a crowd of 15,000 in Seattle on Saturday. The pair said that Sanders didn’t pay enough attention to criminal justice reform and racial equality. After organizers failed to regain control of the mic, Sanders left the stage and the event was shut down.
