Bernie Bae

 
 

TALK BERNIE TO ME

My thoughts on the 2016 race — in video form, of course — with the debut of "Bernie Bae."  As a fervent supporter of Bernie Sanders, I wanted to further the grassroots inertia that's pushing Senator Sanders' campaign forward with the help of a team of Voguers, set designers, and more who all passionately #FeelTheBern. Featuring lyrical gems like "Talk Bernie to me" and "You're much more than a human Birkenstock," the song succinctly explains why many feel inspired by the Vermont senator: "I was feeling so hopeless/ And so cynical/ Now you've got me focused/ Bernie you're a miracle."
