During a live conference call with 10,000 supporters earlier this month, Bernie Sanders gave a stinging response to Donald Trump on telling the truth and using the worst tactics to win political support.
The exclusive call for nearly 10,000 Democracy for America (DFA) members was the biggest DFA Live call the group has ever hosted.
Not only did Sanders let Trump know just how much he would “love, love, love” to wage a head-to-head campaign against him this November — Bernie also called out The Donald for the kind of campaign he is running.
“It’s not just this man’s arrogance, bigotry, and demagoguery he expresses in trying to divide us up,” said Sanders. “I have to also say — and I don’t like saying this about people, you know there are people who disagree with me that I respect, there are conservatives that I regard as friends — but this guy, I have to say, really is a pathological liar.”
“He just says things that are outrageous, that have no basis in fact,” said Sanders.
That candor was well received.
“If Donald Trump is the GOP’s presidential nominee, we are going to need a Democratic presidential nominee who is not only willing to call Donald Trump out for his bigotry — but will also be tough on the millionaires and billionaires whose greed rigs the system and undermines our democracy daily,” said DFA’s political director, Evan James.
A Sanders win in Iowa and New Hampshire in just a few weeks,would shock the political establishment, and put the Democratic nomination for Hillary Clinton in serious jeopardy.
To support building a political revolution with Bernie Sanders and stand up to Donald Trump, some New Jersey activists banded together to organize Democrats for Change.
Among the group’s leaders is James Devine, a former political director at the New Jersey
Democratic State Committee.
Devine said anyone who.has ever.considered running for public office should sign up at

In order to run in the June 7 primary, candidates must file petitions months in advance and Devine stressed that it takes time to campaign effectively.
