Bernie Sanders done gone walk into the lions’ den, y'all! And he came back out alive, believe it or not! Earlier this week the presidential hopeful went to notably conservative and majority Evangelical Liberty University in Virginia. When asked why, Sanders said,“I came here today because I believe that it is important for those with different views in our country to engage in civil discourse.”
While this is true, it’s not that big of a deal. Arguably, every single one of us do that at the Thanksgiving table every year with our shitty uncle. Alas, it is pretty dope a candidate went out of their way to say sup to the haters. Most people just tend to surround themselves with yes-men who agree with their politics and tell them their hair looks great.
So mad props to the Bern and check out this video of him telling a stadium of students that he’s pro-life but doesn’t hate them for thinking he’s dead wrong. The full speech is posted beneath, too.
