Back in the late 1980s, there was a ridiculous concept of a movie about two buddies who visit their beguiled employer, discover that he’s dead, and take him out for a weekend on the town anyway.
It was Weekend at Bernie’s, a spoof so stupid — Hollywood did it twice.
Why no one has done a propaganda ad for or against the mighty senator from Vermont is beyond me, but Trump just had a not-so-great weekend in Sanders’ backyard, stumping for support.
It all started when Trump’s campaign reportedly asked people as they entered the venue whether or not they were Trump supporters. If they weren’t, they were not permitted access.
As fortune would have it, the screening process was not foolproof and a few irksome political activists sneaked in, which is how the fun began in Burlington, Vt.
When the heckling began, there were a few boos, but as the clamoring got worse, Trump told security to take the coats away from the protesters before throwing them out in the cold.
“I thought I heard a little voice over there. All right, get him out. Take him out. Get him out of here. Don’t give him his coat!” Trump exclaimed.
“Confiscate their coats,” Mr. Trump said to the crowd, in response to the protesters. “It’s about 10 degree below zero. You can keep his coat. Tell him we’ll send it back to him in a couple of weeks.” He also suggested that some of the protesters had “a substance abuse problem.”
Well, of course, he suggested that. Remember what he suggested about Mexicans? Another interruption created this response:
“Get him out. Get him out. Get him out. Get him out. Yeah, take him out please. … Get him out,” Trump directed to his event’s security team. “You know, it’s sort of fun. Isn’t this more exciting? You go to a Hillary thing, and it’s like boring. You go to a Jeb thing and you fall asleep.”
Let that be a lesson to you voters: Heckling is not only embarrassing to the Trump Administration, but punishable by death.
