President Trump said Sunday morning that he can “relate” to federal workers who are not receiving a paycheck due to the government shutdown.
My question to the president, “Can you relate to the pain of federal workers who can’t pay their bills?” Pres. Trump:”I can relate…”. Watch: pic.twitter.com/WJCBHZQ15x

Of all people, Bernie Sanders should not be commenting on this.
But Bernie Sanders commented on it.
Mr. President, I doubt very much that you can “relate” to federal workers.
When is the last time you had to choose between paying your mortgage, feeding your family or putting gas in the car?
End the shutdown. Pay federal employees. https://t.co/rHm3gpmPMz

This is a senator who wants very hard to relate to your tax rate.
This coming from the guy who wants everyone "else" making a few hundred thousand dollars to pay more taxes while he buys more houses. https://t.co/74anxqLkQa

And then there’s this detail brought up by Brit Hume.
I wonder if the author of this story is aware that Trump accepts no salary as president. https://t.co/WTIKcjzfl8

Huh, Sanders seems to have left that part out of his tweet.
