Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders slapped back at rival Donald Trump on Sunday morning, calling the GOP front-runner “a man who cannot stop lying about anything.”
Appearing on the CNN’s State of the Union with Jake Tapper, the discussion immediately turned to Trump blaming Sanders’ supporters for disrupting his rallies and the New York billionaire calling the Vermont senator “our communist friend.”
After initially laughing at Trump’s accusations, Sanders proceeded to unload on the blustery businessman.
“For a start, we should take Mr. Trump’s words with a grain of salt,” Sanders began. “Because I think almost everybody knows, this man cannot stop lying about anything. To call me a communist is a lie. To talk about our organization, our campaign, disrupting his meeting is a lie,”
Sanders went on to state unequivocally that his campaign has nothing to do with the protests.
Sanders then enlisted comments made by Trump’s GOP rivals to criticize him over the violence at his rallies.
“Even his Republican colleagues make this point,” Sanders continued. “His language, his intonations, when you talk about carrying people out in stretchers, you see at his rallies people sucker-punched, folks kick people when they’re down. This is a man who keeps implying violence, and then you end up getting what you see.”
“I think that he, in fact, has got to tell his supporters that in the United States of America we don’t go beating up people, that people have a right to peacefully protest, and I hope that becomes the tone of his campaign.”

WATCH: Seth Meyers goes after ‘sociopath’ Jared Kushner for America’s coronavirus failures
The host of "Late Night with Seth Meyers" on NBC harshly criticized senior White House advisor Jared Kushner for America's COVID-19 testing failures.
"More than 155,000 Americans have now died from the coronavirus pandemic," Meyers noted. "Cases are rising in more than 20 states. The U.S. now accounts for one-quarter of all coronavirus deaths in the world."
"And in some parts of the country, people are waiting as long as two-weeks to get their test results -- which is insane. The whole point of testing is to find cases, isolate them and trace their contacts. If it takes two weeks, it's pointless."
Joy Reid medical expert blasts the president’s lies on coronavirus: ‘Trump needs to stay in his lane’
MSNBC anchor Joy Reid interviewed Dr. Bernard B. Ashby about the latest coming from the White House on the coronavirus pandemic.
"If, for instance, you did not test for pregnancy, does it mean you are not pregnant?" Reid asked.
Ashby, a cardiologist from Miami, praised the anchor on her new primetime show, "The ReidOut," but did not directly answer the question.
"And in terms of the whole discourse, the fact that I'm having to respond to Trump about clinical medicine is ridiculous," Dr. Ashby explained.
"Trump needs to stay in his lane. Like, we went to medical school for a long time, we did training for a long time to speak on exactly what ... we have the expertise to speak on and the fact that Trump is asserting himself in academic medicine, into clinical medicine is ridiculous," he explained.
‘One whopper after another’: CNN’s Acosta tears into Trump for lying the Postal Service can’t deliver enough ballots
On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta slammed President Donald Trump's litany of lies about mail-in voting at the day's coronavirus press briefing.
"Right at the end of that press conference, the president was just telling one whopper after another about mail-in voting, at one point saying that he doesn't believe that the U.S. Postal Service has the ability to deal with mail-in balloting at election time," said Acosta. "We just need to point out, the U.S. Postal Service put out a statement late this afternoon that says, 'the Postal Service has ample capacity to adjust our nationwide processing and delivery network to meet projected election and political mail volume, including any additional volume that may result as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.'"
