If you’re in search of an inspiring moment in this abysmal election season that only seems to be getting worse, watch this clip of a different sort of Bernie Sanders supporter.

This 90-year-old man is positively glowing as he relays why he supports Bernie Sanders for the presidency.

“Bernie, he’s trying to do something that the rest of them are not doing . . . he calls it Socialism, I call it caring for your neighbors.”

(He actually calls it Democratic Socialism, but we’ll let it slide).

The man behind the camera says that he, too, is an older gentleman who has never seen the likes of Bernie in politics before. If someone tries to posit that the only people supporting Sanders are naive, young know-nothings, show them this clip.
