Bernie could be in the middle of a knife fight on a sinking crab fishing vessel in the bearing sea and he would still find a way to talk about policy during it. The man is truly passionate about it.

Andrew Yang is so right. Not enough was said about Donald Trump's hair.

Bernie's response was hilarious because he didn't even take the time to be offended or react to the joke! 😂😂😂 He just went right back into policy. The most accidentally hilarious hero I know. Maybe it's just me. 🤷🏾‍♀️
