Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins takes a look at the Lev Parnas tape that was released in late January, noting that Trump tells us who scares him the most.

This is pure gold, being handed to the Dems on a silver platter.

Cousins says that Trump "was able to pull Hillary Clinton down to his level. I think back to those debates, I know a lot of people on the left want to say, no, Hillary won because she stayed on topic. Well, she didn't, folks. Go back and rewatch some of those. Watch how Donald Trump pulls her into his arguments and gets her off of her own.

"Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton's running mate, was weak as heck. So weak that I had to look up his name because I forgot who he was before I did this video. As I'm sure a lot of people also did. Tim Kaine was completely forgettable.

"What happened in his debate with Mike Pence? Nobody remembers.

But if you would have replaced him or instead of picking him, picked Bernie Sanders, Trump would have been afraid."

"Bernie was the only person (Trump) was hoping (Hillary) did not pick (as her running mate.)"

On the recording, Trump, who does not appear to know he is being recorded, is clearly heard saying, "If she picked Bernie as vice president it would have been tougher..."

Cousins concludes:

"You want to put a candidate up there that scares Donald Trump?

You want to put somebody up there that Trump doesn't want to run against?

Well, we know who it is now.

It's Bernie Sanders.

Donald Trump is not afraid of Joe Biden.
