During this week’s democratic debate Bernie Sanders said he will release his tax returns but said they’re boring because he’s “One of the poorest members of the senate.” So now he’s just bragging about how poor he is. At this point Bernie is just an opposite Trump. [speaking like Donald Trump] “I’m so poor. I got the smallest house. And check out my daughter, she’s 52.” [picture changes to Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders] They really are like cartoon opposites. I mean, Trump’s wife was a model. Bernie’s wife is doing his taxes. Trump spends two hours a day on his hair. Bernie’s barber is the wind. The only way Bernie could be more opposite is if he built a tunnel to Mexico and then made America pay for it.

Colin Jost: Donald Trump has received the endorsement of the New York Observer which is published by his son-in-law. Well, Ted Cruz failed to get the endorsement of his family’s Christmas newsletter.
