2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders snapped at a child’s parent during a town hall event this week; demanding a crying baby “keep that down a bit” while speaking with supporters on the campaign trail.
The self-described Democratic Socialist’s reaction left many in attendance surprised, with some shocked at his insensitive behavior.
The video emerged on social media hours after Sanders labeled President Trump the “worst president in the history” of the United States on ‘The View.’
“I love Nancy but she and I disagree on this issue,” Sanders said. “I think the way you beat Donald Trump — and I must say that in my view, Donald Trump is the most dangerous president probably in the history of this country.”
“I work[ed] with your dad, I work with other people on issues where we can come together,” he told co-host Meghan McCain. “That’s what I think American politics is supposed to be about. But you have a president today – and again, it gives me no joy to say this – he is a pathological liar.”
"He's a pathological liar," Bernie Sanders tells @TheView about Trump.
"And when people ask me what do you think about what Trump said 5 minutes ago in a tweet? I say 'I'm not going to say anything because 5 minutes from now he's going to change is view'" https://t.co/MgPU9WoNx0 pic.twitter.com/PKjirqY0ae

KITCHEN NIGHTMARE? Bernie Reportedly Rude to Restaurant Staff in San Fran, Loses Votes, Wife Apologizes
John Konstin, owner of San Francisco’s 111-year-old John’s Grill, was initially excited to host attendees of the Democratic National Committee’s summer meetings. That is, until Bernie Sanders showed up.
“It was all very nice, except for cranky Bernie,” Konstin told Politico. “He didn’t want to shake hands, he didn’t want a picture.”
“The owner also alleged that Sanders ‘wasn’t nice to any of the staff,’ and called the independent Vermont senator ‘rude and cranky.’ He went on to say that Sanders lost his vote over the behavior,” according to the Washington Examiner.
According to Lee Housekeeper, media contact for John’s Grill, it’s not like Konstin to speak out about patron’s behavior.
“Bernie had to be in a terrible mood. Anyone in the public eye needs to understand when it’s time to order room service,” Housekeeper told SFGATE.
Sanders reportedly left a tip. His wife, Jane Sanders, apologized on the way out.
The self-described Democratic Socialist’s “cranky” meal comes just days after he released his $16 trillion plan to combat climate change.
“Atop our existing government spending, comprising some 40% of GDP, the Vermont Senator wouldn’t just nationalize one-fifth of the economy with a ‘Medicare For all’ bill eliminating private health insurance. Under his Green New Deal plan, he would also nationalize most of the energy sector,” reports the Washington Examiner.
“At a mere $16.3 trillion, the Sanders plan would go beyond simply spending measures to increase climate-focused research and development. It would literally centralize the means of domestic energy production,” adds the Examiner.
“What we need to do is have an aggressive federal government. You can’t nibble around the edges anymore. We need to transform our energy system, that means a massive increase in sustainable energy,” Sanders told MSNBC.

“Climate change is a global emergency. The Amazon rainforest is burning, Greenland’s ice shelf is melting, and the Arctic is on fire. People across the country and the world are already experiencing the deadly consequences of our climate crisis, as extreme weather events like heat waves, wildfires, droughts, floods, and hurricanes upend entire communities, ecosystems, economies, and ways of life, as well as endanger millions of lives. Communities of color, working class people, and the global poor have borne and will bear this burden disproportionately,” writes Sanders.
WHAT’S THE PLAN? Bernie Says Rent Prices in San Francisco Are ‘Unaffordable,’ Wants ‘Decent Housing for All’
Democratic Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders weighed-in Wednesday on the sky-high rent prices in San Francisco; saying the “richest country in the world is going to end that disgrace” by providing “decent housing” for all Americans.
“Housing is so unaffordable in San Francisco that entire families are forced to live in 6’x10′ rooms and share a kitchen with 30 other families. In the richest country in the world we are going to end that disgrace. Decent housing must be a right of all Americans,” he tweeted.

Sanders continued to wage his personal war against climate change this week; comparing the country’s struggle to stop global warming with the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.
“In some ways…I’m reminded today in terms of the crisis that we face in climate change about where the United States was in 1941 when it was attacked at Pearl Harbor, and what happened at that point, having to fight a war on two fronts in the East and in Europe, the United States came together and within three years it had created the type of armaments program that was necessary to, in fact, win the war,” Sanders said in a conference call with reporters.
“So I don’t think the issue here isn’t that we can’t address this problem, i think we can, I think we know exactly what has to be done, and that is massive investment in sustainable energy, massive investments in energy efficiency, transform our transportation system, we know what has to be done, but the problem is the lack of political will,” he said.
“We know that the scientific consensus is here, the solutions are right in front of us but…this is not just a scientific crisis, not just an environmental crisis, a climate crisis but this is a political crisis of inaction, and it’s going to take political will, political courage in order for us to treat us this issue with the urgency that the next generation needs in order for us to preserve our way of life and preserve our planet as much as we possibly can,” added Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The two politicians released new legislation Tuesday that would officially designate climate change “national emergency.”
