Watch Senator Bernie Sanders Call Trump Tweets 'Delusional' And 'Insane' On Conan
And in the most matter-of-fact way, which makes it even more withering.
Bernie isn't saying anything progressives haven't already said to themselves over the last few weeks about the president-elect's..."energetic," let's say, social-media pronouncements. But there is something comforting, at least to this progressive, about watching a U.S. senator list all the problems with Trump focusing on flag-burning -- and in a calm, determined, "yeah: no" tone of voice.
It's worth noting too that Conan has some experience with getting a rug yanked out from under him, and seems to understand that his viewers need to hear a voice from inside the government assure them that at least they're not taking crazy pills.
