US Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders lambasted billionaire Donald Trump on Thursday for his vulgar remark on Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton going to the bathroom. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump had asked the crowd at Grand Rapids, Michigan four times on Monday about Clinton’s brief disappearance, after she came seconds late to the debate stage following a commercial break.

In a video, Sanders openly took on Trump and questioned his ‘unusual relationship’ with women. “Trump is upset… it’s very hard for him to deal with. Don’t know what his relationship with women has been in his life. But he has discovered that women go to the bathroom. And it’s been very upsetting for him,” said Sanders.

At a rally in Michigan, Trump had said, “I thought she gave up,” Trump said. “Where did she go? Where did Hillary go? They had to start the debate without her. Phase II. I know where she went. It’s disgusting. I don’t want to talk about it.”

Clinton, answering a question about bullying at an event in Iowa, did not name Trump but said she was used to people saying “terrible things” about her.

“It’s important to stand up to bullies wherever they are, and why we shouldn’t let anybody bully his way into the presidency because that is not who we are as Americans,” Clinton said, according to video that aired on MSNBC on Tuesday.

      Sanders winning the election will bankrupt America within a year. Every policy this fellow has is basically free, free, free.

        Trump deserves to be shown the door from the Presidential race. He has brought the level of the of the race to the new low by personal attacks on the basis of gender, religion, country of origin, color of skin just to name a few. Apparent he enjoys using vulgar and street language against his opponents and any thing he does not like.. The support and appreciation he receives seems to stemming from the fact that he is able to express openly the hatred and dislike people have for something or some people., that generally is avoided in the decent society. He seems to have breached that decency by several notches. The wise and educated alike should get together to go against his approach of arrogance, demeaning and insulting and bring him to the decency level of debate and issue based arguments. Or else he should be told "You are fired!" as in his own show. How better candidate it can be than Trump himself to receive the same words himself?

          Sanders or Hillary both are fine. Trump should have a political death. Joker, misogynist, macho, aggressive, racial, blatantly pro rich. He needs to be shown the door. Given a choice, I am for the saner wiser pro people Sanders. But then let US voters elect their President.

            Hillary waited outside the bathroom because another woman was in there. She waited till she left. Plenty of stalls but Mdm Imso Special would rather be late to debate than share a bathroom with someone else.
