Donald Trump Mocks Bernie Sanders' Meeting with Pope Francis

Donald Trump is mocking the brief meeting Bernie Sanders had with Pope Francis Friday, which the GOP front-runner said was a short "five minutes," reports CBS.

"You know, he went to see the pope," Trump said of Sanders during a rally in Syracuse, New York Saturday. "Five minutes. Then he came out. He said, 'We talked about the environment, we talked about global warming, we talked about all these different things.'"

"And I said, wait a minute, he was only there five minutes," Trump added. "So the pope gave him five minutes. I wonder why the pope gave him five -- he shouldn't have given him that much time really."

Trump has not released any information on how much time he has spent meeting with his "national security advisory team"

When he first announced names of his advisors, some on the list said they had not met with him.

Mother Jones,for example, reported:
When Donald Trump, the reality show tycoon turned GOP front-runner, appeared on Meet the Press this past Sunday, host Chuck Todd asked him, "Who do you talk to for military advice right now?" At first, Trump had no direct answer. He replied, "Well, I watch the shows. I mean, I really see a lot of great—you know, when you watch your show and all of the other shows and you have the generals and you have certain people that you like." Todd pressed him: "But is there a go-to for you?" Trump said he had two or three "go-to" advisers. He named John Bolton, one of the most hawkish neoconservatives, and retired Army Col. Jack Jacobs, who is a military analyst for MSNBC and NBC News. "Col. Jack Jacobs is a good guy," Trump said. "And I see him on occasion."
There's just one problem with Trump citing Jacobs as a national security adviser: Jacobs says he has never talked to Trump about military policy.
"He may have said the first person who came to mind," Jacobs tells Mother Jones. "I know him. But I'm not a consultant. I'm not certain if he has a national security group of people. I don't know if he does or if he doesn't. If he does, I'm not one of them."
Jacobs, who received a Medal of Honor (and two Silver Stars, three Bronze Stars, and two Purple Hearts) for his service in Vietnam, notes that he has attended numerous charity events where Trump was present. "I've seen him at a number of functions," he says. But Jacobs adds that he has had no discussions with Trump about national security affairs—at those events or anywhere else.
Sounds like less than 5 minutes to me.

Trump, Sanders. all these guys are clowns.
