Last Night’s Massive Bernie Sanders Rally on Twitter and Instagram
Bernie Sanders may be lagging behind Hillary Clinton in the Pennsylvania primary polls, but you couldn’t tell that when he visited Philly on Wednesday.
Sanders took the stage Wednesday night at Temple University, appearing before an enthusiastic, overflow crowd, to make his case for the presidency.
“This sounds to me like the sound of a political revolution,” Sanders said of the reception.
He also stirred controversy, suggesting Clinton isn’t qualified to be president — a response, his campaign said, to interviews in which Clinton appeared to suggest that he isn’t qualified for the White House. “Secretary Clinton appears to be getting a little bit nervous,” Sanders told the Temple crowd.
Sanders’ visit to Philadelphia was captured and shared widely on the Twitter and Instagram social media platforms, often under hashtags like #PhiltheBern and #PhillytheBern. Here are some of the best posts we saw.

It took 4 hours of standing in line, a lot of yelling, a lot of pushing, but I was in the same room as Bernie fucking Sanders #FeelTheBern
