Bernie Sanders makes surprise Coachella cameo
Hip-hop outfit Run the Jewels made sure to participate in the Coachella surprise tradition this year, inviting a particularly intriguing guest to introduce their performance. Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders took over main stage’s colossal video screens to fans’ shock and excitement, sharing a few brief and positive words about getting to know Killer Mike and El-P on the campaign trail.
Killer Mike is an outspoken Bernie supporter who has spent a fair amount of his own time campaigning for his cause. The two have developed a solid relationship thus far, with some even dubbing the rapper as an unofficial campaign adviser. Though Sanders was not physically there to welcome Run the Jewels to the stage, his video introduction was enough to place his appearance among one of the most talked-about Coachella surprises of the weekend.
