    Rob, I assume you posted the graphic as a joke. Don't believe Sanders ever said what the graphic says. As a joke, it is pretty funny.

    But not to the same extent as with Trump. He is the current world champion.

    The big difference between them and him though is that both of them claim to be a Christian!

    So what they say and do are even worse...

    Are you saying that Trump does not claim to be Christian?

    Oh, it's definitely a hyperbolic characterization of his positions. But a guy running to be president of a country that spends almost twice as much money as it takes in from taxes must be engaging in a little demagoguery of his own when he promises a plethora of new freebies.

    The demagogue label is a knife that cuts both ways.
