Killer Mike is a pretty savvy dude.
The Run The Jewels rapper has made a name for himself his clever wordplay, and swift in the political arena, not allowing tough talk from candidates to get over on him. So with his hometown of Atlanta behind him, Mike cosigned Democratic presidential hopeful, Sen. Bernie Sanders Monday (November 23) at a rally.
Before the Vermont senator took the stage, Mike galvanized the audience reiterating a lot of what Sanders has said on the campaign trail, and made sure to also stress to his fellow ATLiens, he has no desire to elect a president who will set the country back.
“I have no time in my short 40 years on this Earth to relive the Reagan years. I have no desire to see us elect our own Margaret Thatcher,” Mike told the audience.
After the rally, Mike took the Senator out to lunch at Atlanta’s Busy Bee’s restaurant.
