Bernie Sanders goes to drag brunch in West Hollywood

Bernie Sanders with Wilson Cruz Instagram

Nothing says “typical West Hollywood voter” like a good drag brunch. Bernie Sanders, consummate politician that he is, has a nose for drama queen supporters and took a swing through iconic restaurant Hamburger Mary’s yesterday to rail against the establishment.

Obviously, patrons went nuts and they did what all good gays do when something awesome is standing right in front of them. They took to Grindr. Wait. Sorry. That’s a different kind of “Feel the Bern” entirely.

They took to Instagram and Twitter and it’s a good thing they did because I got to write a headline with “Bernie Sanders,” “drag brunch,” and “West Hollywood” for an LGBT news site. That’s clickbaiting worthy of a superdelegate.


Do you guys remember the time @berniesanders came to Drag Brunch at @hamburgermarysweho ? I do too. #feelthebern
