Trump's Unoriginal Nickname For Bernie Sanders Falls Flat: 'The Best You Can Do?'

"Crazy Bernie is right up there with Trump's great nickname for Nancy Pelosi: Nancy," one person tweeted.

President Donald Trump once again resorted to name-calling as he passive-aggressively wished Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) well in his bid to become the Democratic presidential nominee for 2020.

He also called Trump “a racist,” “a sexist” and “a xenophobe.”
