All things considered this is one of the most shocking videos I’ve ever seen. I mean I’m in fucking tears right now. I know the word disqualifying doesn’t mean anything anymore but if it did I absolutely would have put this in the disqualifying category.
For starters look where the man is facing as he starts his journey, just staring right down the business end of his garage.
It’s like he’s strapped into the seat, rollercoaster style, and couldn’t even turn around if he wanted to. You could make the argument that maybe there’s a backup camera but I can’t imagine that comes with a bare bones Chevy Volt. Plus, it’s just way funnier to imagine him throwing that red rocket in reverse as he mutters, “Hope there’s nothing behind me,” and slams the gas.
Next, I’m pretty sure his door is ajar.
Maybe it’s just sunlight or angle but it appears that Bernie shut his door the same way he gets dressed or does his hair and by that I mean he doesn’t really do it he just says, “Good enough,” and goes about his day.
Finally, the fact that this was posted on his official account, him going out of his way to hit pot holes and taking angles that only a drunk 16 year old could justify. This wasn’t taken by some paparazzi hiding in the bushes looking to get the goods, this was Bernie Sanders’ press team. They took this, said “Yup, Bern Dog nailed that get it on IG immediately,” and then posted it. It’s stunning. I can only assume that school was about to get out and they didn’t want to risk take 2 involving some screaming third graders running for their lives so they just went with it, but heavens that is not how you back out of a driveway.
It’s Bernie, bitch.
