Ariana Grande tweeted ‘baby how u feelin’? Bernie Sanders responded

(CNN) — Ariana Grande is feelin’ the bern.Bernie Sanders replied to Grande’s tweet Friday in a move that delighted many involved.

The superstar singer tweeted Friday, “baby how u feelin” — a famous refrain from Lizzo’s hit song “Good As Hell” — the same day the two dropped their new remix version, featuring Grande’s vocals.

The obvious answer, based on the song, is “Feelin’ good as hell,” typically sung at the top of one’s lungs. But presidential hopeful Sanders had a different response.

The Vermont senator went with, “Ready to fight for Medicare for All,” which isn’t quite as catchy but, hey, still works.

Grande later retweeted Sanders’ response, adding a subdued “screaming.”

But freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, who has publicly endorsed Sanders, took it a step further — pairing progressive policies with Grande songs and creating a pretty bumpin’ playlist.

What is ‘Medicare for All’?

“Medicare for All” is, in a nutshell, a plan for changing healthcare in the US and a significant part of Sanders’ platform for office.

The proposal would move healthcare to a government system and eliminate copays, premiums and deductibles, while including inpatient and outpatient hospital care, emergency services, preventative services, most prescription drugs, and dental and vision coverage.

It would also cover long-term or nursing home care. The out-of-pocket fees would be for some prescription drugs and some elective procedures.

Supporters say “Medicare for All” would give more people access to healthcare and bring down costs overall.

Critics, on the other hand, slam how much the plan would cost and question where Sanders would get the money. Sanders has said taxes would go up but Americans would save money in the long run.

    Here’s how it went:
    Grande:”Hey baby,how you doin’?This is Ariana Grande.”
    Bernie:”Hi,great to hear from you… (whispers to campaign manager,”who the f… is that?)
    Campaign mamager:”A young,hot Mexican singer.
    Bernie:(sees picture of her)”I’m having a HEART ATTACK!!!”

    until we make it toxic to careers to mention socialists names like Breadline Bernie, this will continue. People who side with the enemy need to lose their jobs, and never be able to provide for themselves again.

      Ruining careers and destroying earning potential is a leftist tactic……….In fact it is directly from Vladimir Lenin’s playbook. So it’s rather interesting to say the least, that you would advocate such a concept for any reason.
