“Bernie will always be the man,” rapper Kid Cudi wrote on Twitter. Sarah Silverman, who met her “nephew” Cudi for the first time at a Sanders LA rally last month, also jotted down her own goodbye message, writing, “Wow. I’m heartbroken about Bernie. In all this darkness, he made me believe that people, together, could be the light. He continues to be an inspiration. And he’ll never stop fighting for us. Thank you, Bernie. For me, you’re right up there w Mr. Rogers.”
Sonic Youth‘s Kim Gordon thanked the 78-year-old Vermont senator for “putting great ideas above politics and having the courage to stand by them” in her Twitter tribute. Ahead of Super Tuesday last month, Gordon showed her support in an ad titled “What’s Cooking America?” featuring her baking a cake with the special ingredients of Sanders’ recipe for a presidential bid, including Medicare for All, canceled student debt and women’s rights.
