Shaun King: I Don't Care When Trump Calls Bernie "Crazy"

"I don't care when [Trump] calls him "Crazy Bernie." I was in California when Bernie went to Disneyland and literally said that he did not think that Mickey Mouse and Goofy approved of Disney not paying their workers a living wage. You gotta be a little crazy to do that." – Shaun King, civil rights activist.

King, “a columnist and activist”, was speaking at the formal launch of Sanders’ campaign on March 2.

The video then breaks away from King’s speech to a highlighted online CNN headline, “Bernie Sanders smashes the Israel status quo”.
