Bernie Sanders stopped by a Western-themed gay bar for brunch with some people famous in West Hollywood, CA. He intended to say that USA needs a government to represent all people of the country, not only 1% of them. So his visit to one of the gayest places aimed to show that LGBT people must be represented by the American government in part.
RuPaul’s Drag Race star Jasmine Masters apparently joked she was mid-tuck – and almost broke a nail – when she was told the senator from Vermont was in the bar.
Later that day Sanders said: “The purpose of our campaign is to change national priorities. We should not have 47 million people living in poverty. We should not have the highest rate of childhood poverty of almost any major country on earth”. He also stopped off at the fairground at Santa Monica Pier, and rode the merry-go-round in a tradition that has become known as the ‘Sanders Stroll’. “He likes doing it,” a representative said.
