Trump Handicaps 2020 Dems In Call With Hannity

The Huffington Post reports:

President Donald Trump handicapped the front-running Democratic presidential hopefuls at the end of his interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday night. Trump ignored Hannity’s request to be succinct with his summaries and explained at some length why he now calls Biden “Sleepy Joe.”

“He’s not going to be able to do the job,” Trump said. He suggested Sanders had “misguided energy” and “talks a lot, but doesn’t get it done.”

The president also claimed O’Rourke’s popularity was “a fluke” and that Harris has “a little bit of a nasty wit.” Buttigieg, meanwhile, was “not going to make it,” although Trump did say he was “rooting” for Mayor Pete to do well.

The Washington Post reports:

During the interview, which was mostly a vent session for Trump about the Russia investigation, he mocked senior senators for supporting Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, saying they stood “fawning behind her” while she was talking about her vision to combat both climate change and income inequality.

He also took yet another swipe at the late senator John McCain for his famous thumbs-down vote that blocked Republicans from moving forward on repealing key sections of the Affordable Care Act.

“He did Republicans a tremendous disservice, did the nation a tremendous disservice. … It was a disgraceful thing to do,” Trump said about the war hero.
