If Anyone Tells You Young People Don’t Care About Politics, Show Them This Video

“We do not need incremental change, we need bold leadership. And that’s what Bernie Sanders brings to the conversation.”

Rosario Dawson, Bernie Sanders supporter and actress who portrayed Dolores Huerta (a controversial Hillary Clinton supporter) in the Cesar Chavez biopic, used her celebrity and time to introduce the Democratic presidential hopeful at his San Diego rally on Tuesday. Dawson spoke candidly about needing a president who doesn’t want to push the “shiny red button” their first day in office, a likely jab at Hillary Clinton’s past reputation as a hawk, and touted Sanders’ decade-long fight for racial, gender and socioeconomic equality.

“So, when I hear someone ask me, ‘Well, well, if it comes down to it will you vote for the other candidate if it’s Trump,'” Dawson said, immediately shaking her head in disapproval, “I say, if you want to beat Trump, vote Bernie.” At that moment, the crowd lost its collective minds.

Despite that moment of pause, it was an encouraging glimpse of young people — they made up most of the visible audience in the video — showing enthusiasm for the political process. The young age of the attendees was not lost on Dawson, who pointed out that young people have always been on the right side of history.

This Trump-Themed Parody Of ‘Hamilton’ Is Everything

Rad Motel/YouTube

Much in the same way that Broadway breakout hit “Hamilton” came out quietly from the wings and bursted onto the main stage, Donald Trump has gone from dark horse to having a where-the-hell-did-he-come-from?!-type of success on the political front.

And while at first glance, founding father Alexander Hamilton — focus of the sold-out, Grammy-winning, chart topping rap hit musical — might not have much in common with the Donald, sketch comedy group Rad Motel begs to differ.

“Hamiltrump” tells the mythical tale of Trump in rhyming beats.

“How does the bastard, racist son of a millionaire and a mogul dropped in the middle of a race of the Republicans in tatters, a party nearly shattered somehow become the only one that matters?” TBH, we are wondering the same thing. Seriously, how?

Rascal Alexander Hamilton used his wits and intrepidness to get to the top of the political ladder more than two centuries ago. Donald Trump? Not so much, and this music video contrasts that with the seemingly cushy way Trump rose to the stop.

The comedy troupe rips Trump pretty hard; Rad Motel points out his two failed marriages before meeting “mail-order bride” Melania, they remind people of his (previously stated) disturbing comments about daughter Ivanka and even mention that damn wall.
