Bernie Sanders spoke to a crowd at George Mason University, in Fairfax, Virginia, on October 28. Seated behind him in the audience was a young man who is apparently a George Mason student. He seemed to be completely disinterested in what the Vermont senator and presidential candidate was saying, until the moment when Bernie uttered what was apparently a “magic word” for the student.
While we can’t say what this young man’s thoughts were, it may have gone something like this:
Student (thinking): Wow. I’m missing the Wizards game for this. And what’s this on my hand? Shit, I need a Kleenex.
Bernie: In my view, the time is long overdue….
Student: What’s that on the floor? Gum? Or is it a piece of black licorice? People always throw away the black licorice. That’s cool. I don’t like it myself.
Bernie: for us to remove…
Student: Man, I’m hungry. I knew I should have gotten something to eat before this started.
Bernie: the federal prohibition on marijuana.
At that point, the student’s look says it all.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sezhr7jbrlk?rel=0]
