“This fit and energy is why I will always have a place in my heart for Bernie Sanders,” one popular tweet reads.

“Shout out to Bernie Sanders showing up to the inauguration as if he’s headed to the UPS store and picking up some coffee in Burlington,” wrote another.

“I wanna be Michelle Obama but I know I’m a Bernie Sanders,” said another user.

Halsey Says She Supports The Wealth Tax In Conversation with Bernie Sanders

Halsey invited Senator Bernie Sanders to an open conversation where they shared their thoughts on the upcoming presidential election and the wealth tax.

The 26-year-old singer and the politician got candid about they really thought about last week’s Presidential debate, before diving into a conversation about tax evasion and wealth inequalities.

Halsey discussed her upbringing, saying she is from a “lower-class family” with parents that dropped out of college to have her.

“Now, as an adult at 26 years old I’m part of the one-percent,” Halsey said. “There is no amount of money that I think is worth personally contributing to the alienation, the disenfranchisement of millions, hundreds of millions of people across this country. Which is why despite being in the one percent, I support the wealth tax. Because I believe that the people who oppose it are motivated by greed.”

Bernie added that American has “an economy that is controlled by people who are incredibly greedy.”

“They want more and more and more, so that we end up with three people in America owning more wealth than the bottom half of our society. Three people. The top one percent owns more wealth than the bottom 92 percent,” he shared.

After promising more talks with them both, Halsey and Bernie both endorsed Joe Biden for President.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Explains Why She Nominated Bernie Sanders During Democratic Convention

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is explaining what she said during the 2020 Democratic Convention.

While appearing during the virtual DNC on Tuesday (August 18), the 30-year-old U.S. Representative praised Senator Bernie Sanders‘ campaign, before seconding his nomination for president.

AOC‘s nomination for Sanders confused viewers – since Vice President Joe Biden is the official Democratic nominee – so she took to Twitter to explain.

“If you were confused, no worries!” AOC tweeted. “Convention rules require roll call & nominations for every candidate that passes the delegate threshold. I was asked to 2nd the nom for Sen. Sanders for roll call. I extend my deepest congratulations to @JoeBiden – let’s go win in November.”

AOC then went on to show her support for Biden.

“Congratulations, @JoeBiden – I deeply look forward to fighting for our future together and reclaiming our democracy in November,” AOC tweeted. “Thank you @DemConvention for having me deliver Sen. Sanders’ roll call nomination speech. It’s been an absolute honor. #NotMeUs & #Biden2020.”

“I don’t want an another war…the economy right now, it sucks, like people are not making money. Some people are getting money, and they are not supposed to be getting money.

I haven’t seen my grandparents in a month and I’m dying to see them,” she continued.
