Jack White threw some musical muscle -- at high volume -- behind U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign on Sunday afternoon (Oct. 27) in White's home town of Detroit.
Telling the crowd in the gymnasium of Cass Technical High School, his alma mater, that he'd "never done a political rally before" and was not particularly affiliated, White noted during his 25-minute, six-song performance that "when the issues come up I try to listen." "Bernie Sanders is telling the truth, and I really do trust him," he told the gathering, adding that he was particularly drawn in by Sanders' position to abolish the Electoral College -- "the reason we're in the mess we're in now."
"I have this silly notion that the person who gets the most votes should be elected," White said. He took another swipe at President Donald Trump during his version of Bob Dylan’s' "License to Kill," tweaking one of lines to "who's gonna take away Trump's license to kill?"
