Bernie Sanders Jokes, Sort Of, About Bringing a Lie Detector to Debate Donald Trump

It was one moment of levity in an otherwise fairly grim town hall.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) joined Wolf Blitzer for a town hall on CNN on Monday night. For just over an hour, Sanders fielded questions on his Medicare-For-All plan, his stance on reparations, whether Washington, D.C. should be granted statehood and the high cost of medication in America.

None of these issues have a lot of levity baked into them. But there was one entertaining moment, when Blitzer asked Sanders, “If you are on the debate stage with President Trump, how will you engage with him?”

“Well,” Sanders replied, “we’ll bring a lie detector along.”

After the audience laughed, he added, “And every time he lies, it goes ‘beep!'”

Here is a demonstration of how Donald Trump hooked to a lie detector might look in practice:
