Bernie Sanders Blurs Reality, Follows Extra Wacky Twitter Parody Account of Himself
I have a dumb sense of humor. No, I mean it. It is d-u-m-b. I live for stupid novelty Twitter accounts. I cry actual tears over stupid novelty Twitter accounts. You know what, though? I don’t feel bad. On the contrary, I feel great about my dumb sense of humor because I am in good company.
I am in the company of a man who is running to be the president of the United States. No, not Donald Trump. He and I aren’t really into the same sorts of Twitter accounts. Bernie Sanders and I, however, both follow @BernieThoughts, which essentially means we are the same person, right?
It’s hilarious. When you read the @BernieThoughts tweets from Viceland’s Spencer Madsen, you can practically hear them in Sanders’ voice.
This one, for instance…

I ENJOY JAPANESE CUISINE BUT I DO NOT TRUST THE MAGIC OF MISO SOUP—YOU STIR IT AND A CLOUD APPEARS INSIDE AS IF SOMETHING HAS AWOKEN
