WATCH: An Interview With a Bernie Supporter in a Rat Suit

Waffles the Clown explains why he’s writing in Bernie this fall (and why he's in a rat suit today in Philadelphia).

Waffles the Clown, a performer who previously dressed up as Bernie Sanders’s little brother Ernie, is marching in an anti-fracking protest today with a sign calling Democrats “Demorats,” and says he’s going to write in Bernie Sanders for president (while holding a giant pencil, of course).

Philadelphia magazine was wondering how he was handling the heat, so we stopped to ask him a few questions. He moved us to the shade first.
