Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders gave his full attention and live-tweeted the GOP Debate on CNN, at least for a couple of minutes. He then got bored and decided to go home.
Judging by his last tweet on the thread which he hashtagged #DebateWithBernie, he did not finish the debate entirely. “Thank you all. I’ve had it. I’m going home. Talk to you soon,” Sanders last tweet read. This particular tweet alone was favorited for more than ten thousand times and retweeted for more than three thousand times.
Morning News USA listed Sander’s top tweets on GOP Debate:
“Does anyone know… when will this debate finally end?”
“Yup. Bush was a great president. Yes. No doubt. Great president. All Obama’s fault.”
“Have you heard anyone use the word “poverty” yet? 47.7 million Americans living in poverty. No discussion.”
“The American people overwhelmingly want to raise the minimum wage to a living wage. Too bad, the Republicans don’t.”
“Trump: “I will take care of women.” Really? What about respecting the right of women to control their own bodies?”
“Does anybody on the stage believe that our gay brothers and sisters have the same rights as the rest of us? Anybody?”
“Can these guys talk about anything other than their desire to go to war?”
“Trump. What a pleasant and humble person. Can’t stop saying kind and generous things about his fellow Republicans.”
Sanders has already nabbed the top spot from Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire poll on Tuesday, CNN reported. He got ahead of the former secretary of state by 7 points. Sanders also has overtaken Clinton in Iowa by 41 percent to 40 percent, according to a poll conducted by Quinnipiac University.
