Bernie Sanders Trolls Donald Trump On Twitter

The #FeelTheBern hashtag is trending after Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont shut down President Donald Trump with one tweet.

Trump shared the following on Twitter Feb. 25: "Maybe millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN should have their own rally. It would be the biggest of them all!"

Sanders responded with, "They did. It wasn't," including a picture from Trump's less-than-crowded inauguration next to what the New York Daily News ascertains is a photo from the Women's March in the same location, which had more people in attendance.

More than 181,000 users have retweeted Sanders comment, and more than 442,500 like it.

The hashtag #FeelTheBern, a phrase that gained popularity during Sanders bid for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination, soon started trending on Twitter.

Trump has not responded to Sanders, but he did mention the senator in an unrelated early morning tweet on Feb. 26.

"The race for DNC Chairman was, of course, totally 'rigged.' Bernie's guy, like Bernie himself, never had a chance. [Former Secretary of State Hillary] Clinton demanded Perez!" he wrote.

Trump is referring to the election of former Secretary of Labor Tom Perez as the new Democratic National Committee chair. 

Sanders supported Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, as did many other progressives in the Party, ABC News reports.They felt he better identified with the grassroots movement that is growing across the country against Trump. Perez appointed Ellison deputy chair of the DNC. Both said the Party must be united, with Perez stating they must lead the resistance to ensure Trump is a one-term president.

According to Gallup, as Trump's first month as president came to a close, he had a 40 percent approval rating. Former President Barack Obama's approval rating was over 60 percent at the same time during his first term in office.
