Bernie Sanders At Drag Brunch Proves He's Even Cooler Than You Thought
Senator Bernie Sanders might be 74 years old, but that doesn't mean he's not hip. Just like pretty much all Millennials in major cities across the US, he loves hitting up a good brunch spot.
On Sunday morning, he stopped by Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood, which is well-known for not just its food, but its fantastic drag brunch.
He was touring the area with GLAAD's Wilson Cruz at the time, Huffington Post reports.
Brunch-goers were apparently very enthused to see the Vermont senator stop by.
Sanders was reportedly there to encourage people to vote ahead of the California Democratic primary on June 7.
At the moment, polls show a very tight race in the Golden State between Sanders and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton.
Even still, some speculate Clinton, who has a significant lead over Sanders in terms of both delegates and the popular vote, could clinch the Democratic nomination on Tuesday.
But if Sanders does ending up winning the primary in California, it will give him more justification to stay in the race and could prove awkward for Clinton.
Bringing her campaign to Compton on Monday, Clinton reportedly reflected on what it would mean to be the first female nominee for president for a major party in the US.
Meanwhile, there are also reports President Obama is preparing to endorse Clinton as early as this week.
Needless to say, we are at a very important point in the 2016 presidential election.
Regardless of what happens, it's pretty remarkable that we live in a time where the leading candidates for president for the Democratic party are a woman and a Jewish democratic socialist who goes to drag brunches. These are strong signs America has definitely progressed over the years.
On the other hand, the presumptive GOP nominee, Donald Trump, is running a very xenophobic, misogynistic and bigoted campaign. So, as a nation, we obviously still have room for improvement.
