Bernie Sanders had a pretty, pretty good night on Tuesday.
While the Democratic presidential hopeful wasn’t able to edge out Hillary Clinton in the Arizona primary, the Vermont Senator won decisively in Idaho and Utah. And to top it off, he received a hilarious and nifty gift on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Since Sanders is vehemently opposed to financing election campaigns with Super PACs, the late night host thought it was only appropriate to give the candidate a fanny pack instead.
“I know you don’t have a Super PAC, but I wanted to give you something,” Kimmel said as he unveiled his gift. “I did get you a fanny pack.”
In addition to having a good laugh, Sanders did get serious as he talked about a range of issues, from controversial Republican frontrunner Donald Trump to the recent terror attacks in Brussels.
“At the end of the day, we cannot allow the Trumps of the world to use these incidents to attack all of the Muslim people in the world,” Sanders said. “To imply that because somebody is a Muslim they are terrorist, that is an outrageous statement.”
