On Thursday, failed presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders took aim at President Donald Trump by calling his former election rival “delusional.”
At a retreat in West Virginia with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sanders enthralled his supportive crowd by lambasting Trump.
“I don’t have to tell anybody here that our country today faces enormous problems,” said Sanders. “We have a delusional president, who is way out of touch with the needs of the people of West Virginia and working people all over this country.”
Sanders particularly took aim at the GOP establishment and their latest efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. He then called upon the rally-goers to form a larger-than-life grassroots movement to counter the Republican Party and Trump: “We saw what that grassroots effort is about on Saturday with the women’s march all over America.”

Senator Warren also chimed in to the roaring crowd: “The Republicans have the power in Washington. They have the Senate. They have the House. They have the White House, so it is now up to us… We can whimper, we can whine or we can fight back. … Are you ready to fight back?”
The likelihood of Senate Democrats stopping the Affordable Care Act repeal efforts is a “50/50” shot, according to Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer, who lent support for the West Virginian retreat. Schumer believes Republicans will need to team up with Democrats in order to effectively stop the repeal.
