Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders came out swinging at Republican front-runner Donald Trump at Sunday’s TV One, CNN Ohio Democratic Presidential Town Hall, calling him a “pathological liar.”
The comment came after a CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Sanders about Trump blaming his supporters for violence at the real estate mogul’s campaign rallies.
“I hate to say this because I really don’t like to disparage public officials, but Donald Trump is a pathological liar,” Sanders said, adding that his campaign does not encourage supporters to commit violence.
He also accused Trump of inciting violence by offering to pay the legal fees for a supporter who was arrested after attacking a Black Lives Matter protester last week at a rally in North Carolina. He called on Trump to tone down the negative rhetoric.
Last week at a North Carolina rally, Rakeem Jones was attacked by a 78-year-old White man as he was being escorted from the event.
