Taliban deal, judicial confirmations, lampooning Democrats: 8 takeaways from Trump's CPAC speech

'Sleepy Joe,' 'Crazy Bernie' and 'Mini-Mike'

Trump poked fun at many of the Democratic presidential hopefuls, calling former Vice President Joe Biden “Sleepy Joe,” Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., “Crazy Bernie,” and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg “Mini-Mike.”

This included Trump mocking Biden for a recent gaffe in which the former vice president claimed that 150 million people in the United States had been killed in gun violence since 2007.

“We’ve got some beauties,” said Trump of the Democratic field. “We got Sleepy Joe, we got Crazy Bernie, we got Mini-Mike, but I think he’s out of it.”

Trump also poked fun at former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, comparing him to Alfred E. Neuman of Mad Magazine, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who he once again called “Pocahontas” for claiming to be Native American.
