President Trump on Tuesday night weighed in on the 2020 Democratic primary, predicting that “Crazy Bernie” and “Sleepy Joe” would be the final Democrats duking it out for the chance to run against him.

He also got a bit morbid about it.

“May God Rest Their Soul!”

Biden hasn’t yet announced his 2020 intentions, though he is expected to toss his hat in the ring sometime after Easter. Trump’s reportedly most concerned about a Biden candidacy than any other 2020 contender. But he’s also shown particular contempt for Sanders. Following the Vermont senator’s town hall on Fox News on Monday, Trump lashed out at Fox News — his favorite network — for being “smiley” toward Sanders.
