We’re so progressive we don’t see color, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the massive size difference between presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and supporter Killer Mike, who rallied together in Atlanta. There’s no denying this is a great photo, and probably has a few people thinking Bernie/Killer 2016.
We can’t help but remember when presidential candidate John Kerry told an MTV audience that he was“fascinated by rap and by hip-hop. I think theres a lot of poetry in it. Theres a lot of anger, a lot of social energy in it. And I think youd better listen to it pretty carefully, cause its important.”
Absolutely no one in that audience believed that Kerry could name one rapper, but Sanders has the advantage of the rapper not only listening to him, but campaigning with him. Killer Mike’s introduction of Sanders in Atlantashows his support is no joke.
“I have said in many a rap, I don’t trust the church or the government, a Democrat, Republican, a pope, a bishop or those other men,” Killer Mike told an enthusiastic crowd. “But after spending five hours tonight, after spending five hours with someone who has spent the last 50 years radically fighting for your rights and mine, I can tell you that am very proud tonight to announce the next president of the United States, Sen. Bernie Sanders.”
Is there room in Sanders’ cabinet for Killer Mike?
