Information on the cameo

Bernard "Bernie" Sanders was born on September 8, 1941, in Brooklyn, New York. He is an American politician, serving as the junior United States Senator from Vermont since 2007 (but will soon become the senior senator after Patrick Leahy retires). Sanders is the longest-serving independent in U.S. congressional history, and is one of two independents currently serving in the Senate, along with Angus King of Maine. Since his election to the House in 1991, he has caucused with the Democratic Party, which has entitled him to committee assignments and at times given Democrats a majority. Sanders became the ranking minority member on the Senate Budget Committee in January 2015; he had previously served for two years as chair of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee. Sanders' campaign against Hillary Clinton for the party's 2016 Presidential nomination raised more money in small, individual contributions than any other in American history, and helped Sanders to rise to international recognition. This was the only time in Sanders' career that he publicly identified as a Democrat, and he has since announced he will return to the Senate as an independent. A self-described democratic socialist, Sanders is pro-labor and emphasizes reversing economic inequality. Many scholars consider his views to be more in line with social democracy and New Deal-era American progressivism than democratic socialism.

Sanders announced he was once again pursuing the Democratic nomination for the 2020 election, with very high support, however, he dropped out on April 8, 2020 after losing the primaries to Joe Biden. However, Sanders became a meme after a photo was taken of him sitting down and wearing oversized mittens at Biden’s inauguration.

Lyrics

[Note: Bernie Sanders is in light blue, while Donald Trump is in regular text.]

Where is my fair share of raps that I earned?

If Bernie got a turn, you would all Feel the Bern!

The system is rigged! Ladies and gentlemen! Just look at this poor communist…

Umm… I'm a Democratic Socialist…

Trivia

  • Although he was scrapped, Sanders was indirectly mentioned by Donald Trump in the official battle during the line, "And you almost lost the primary to a socialist Jew." This references both Sanders’s religion (he grew up in a Jewish family) and the fact that is sometimes called a socialist.
  • He was once again scrapped from appearing as a third-party rapper in Donald Trump vs Joe Biden.
    • This would make him the first character to be scrapped for two separate battles.
