Bernie Sanders says Donald Trump thinks ‘all’ Muslims are ‘criminals or rapists’

Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders paid his first visit to NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and quickly launched into Donald Trump bashing and the GOP frontrunner’s comments on banning Muslims.

“Jimmy, throughout history you have had demagogues trying to to divert attention away from the real issues,” Sanders began.

“This country today faces some enormous problems. We have a middle class that’s disappearing. We have almost all wealth going to the top 1%. We have climate change. We have a corrupt campaign finance system. What somebody like a Trump is trying to do is to divide us up. A few months ago we were supposed to hate Mexicans. He thinks they’re all criminals or rapists. Now we’re supposed to hate Muslims. That kind of crap is not going to work in the United States of America,” Sanders said, to wild applause from Fallon’s Rockefeller Center studio audience.

“I think what American people understand is, given the problems we face, we’ve got to stand together, come together, and create a decent life for all of our people, and stop this scapegoating of one group or another.”

Asked if he was now more focused on beating Donald Trump or beating Hillary Clinton, Sanders laughed, “I look forward to beating Donald Trump. I would enjoy that race very, very much. But first, we’ve got to get past Secretary Clinton and I think we’re going to do that as well.”

Sanders talked about climate change and ultimately crushed Fallon on the Whisper Challenge.
