Wow. Gotta hear the fiery introductory speech at an Atlanta rally by rapper/activist Killer Mike of Run the Jewels, who declared that, “In my heart of hearts, I truly believe Senator Bernie Sanders is the right man to lead this  country.”

I don’t give a fuck about a party in the Hampton’s.
And I don’t give a fuck about a motherfucker Forbe’s list.
Far as I’m concerned, that’s a motherfucking shit list.
I’ll be an outlaw before I ever behave.
And I’ll die a free man before I live a slave.

From “Don’t Die”  by Killer Mike

Citing the legacy of “the revolutionary Martin King,” Mike went on to talk voting rights, drug laws, health care, education and all the reasons he “doesn’t want to see us elect our own Margaret Thatcher.”
Talk about truth to power.
