American Dream Prelude

There's still no sign of Kanye

but Bernie Sanders
and Killer Mike
(also an aspiring politician)

were today seen eating together

at the soul food restaurant
Busy Bee in Atlanta.

They discussed family
the failings of the media
and Noam Chomsky
over chicken

before the Run the Jewels member
repped for Sanders

at a rally
to 5,000 people
at an overfilled Fox Theatre.

“It was just a conversation
between two angry radical guys

one 74 and white
one 40 and black
finding common ground"

said Mike

while Sanders noted
he's "quite a rapper."
