Bernie Sanders might be facing an uphill battle in his campaign to become president but he got a major endorsement earlier today. Lil B, whose Based God blessing has turned into a legitimate cultural phenomenon over the last couple years, took to Twitter to announce that he's putting his support behind the longtime Vermont Senator and presidential hopeful this afternoon. Part of the news is that Sanders follows Lil B on Twitter, which is just smart politics if we're being honest. But Lil B, days after sending out a vague Tweet that offered some of his characteristic love to the politician, got a little more serious about his support yesterday and today.
Last week Based God sent out the following Tweet:
I don't no Bernie sanders but I want to say I love him and his family I hope he represents honesty and love @BernieSanders - Lil B— Lil B From The Pack (@LILBTHEBASEDGOD) July 10, 2015
And then he caught wind that Sanders was following him on Twitter and shared word that the Vermonter is a pretty cool guy.
Finally, this afternoon, Lil B let out the official nod of support.
Based God went on to send out a few more Tweets, not only hyping up Sanders' resume, but also acknowledging that the Twitter love is no small deal in American politics.
