Rudy Giuliani deflated Sen. Bernie Sanders’ victory parade with an embarrassing video of the “athlete” who thinks he will beat President Donald Trump in November.
Trump’s personal attorney took aim at the Vermont senator following his win in the New Hampshire Democrat primary on Tuesday, posting a video from last year and wondering how “this idiot” would debate the president if he becomes the Democratic presidential nominee.
“He will hit himself,” Giuliani predicted, sharing the video of Sanders failing to outwit a punching bag at the Muhammad Ali Center in Louisville, Kentucky.
“Quite the athlete,” the former New York City mayor added.
Imagine this idiot debating Trump. He will hit himself. Quite the athlete. https://t.co/UVGtOeIiqR

Sanders had reportedly joked to his staff that he should get one of the speed bags to get out his “aggression” after being hit back. A follow-up swing after getting bonked was another fail as the self-described democratic socialist missed the bag entirely.
Sanders won the New Hampshire Democratic primary on Tuesday, narrowly beating former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg by fewer than two percentage points after the two appeared to be tied for first place in Iowa last week. Sen. Amy Klobuchar came in with a surprising third-place finish, leaving Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and former Vice President Joe Biden in the dust.
It is amazing that a liberal socialist won in Iowa and New Hampshire. The idea that we would give up the freedoms our veterans fought and died for is unthinkable. Other countries have to be scratching their heads wondering what we are thinking.

Sanders took a shot at Trump during his primary victory speech Tuesday, saying his win there is “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”
“Our campaign is not just about beating Trump, it is about transforming this country,” Sanders added.
The president, who has denounced the Democrats’ treatment of Sanders at times, noted that he would rather face off against former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg than Sanders as the Democratic nominee.
“Frankly, I’d rather run against Bloomberg than Bernie Sanders,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Tuesday. “Because Sanders has real followers, whether you like him or not, whether you agree with him or not. I happen to think it’s terrible what he says. But he has followers. Bloomberg’s just buying his way in.”
Former senior staffer to President George W. Bush had a different take.
“It’s Bernie’s night [in New Hampshire] and we couldn’t have a better winner from the Republican side because democratic socialism is alive and well and lives to fight another day,” Brad Blakeman said during Fox Nation‘s live New Hampshire primary night coverage.
“There’s nothing better, I think, that Donald Trump would want [than] to face Bernie Sanders,” he concluded. “So this is a good night for Republicans to have Bernie Sanders continue to win and be the standard-bearer of his party and be deemed the front-runner.”
