If after watching him effortlessly glide into this handshake you wondered if democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders could get any f**king cooler, well, prepare yourselves.
Following his comprehensive deconstruction of HIllary Clinton in the NYC dem debate, and a quick trip to the vatican, the 74-year-old democratic socialist appeared via live stream at Coachella to introduce his friend and advocate Killer Mike’s hip hop group Run the Jewels!

"I thought the least I could do for both of you (Run the Jewels) was to help you out by bringing a few young people together."

But it certainly strengthens the notion that this is the dude that understands what the future of the country wants and needs, even if his stump speech fixtures of soaring privilege and income inequality is largely lost on the Coachella crowd….
