Controversial Hollywood director Spike Lee has come out in favor of Bernie Sanders for president. Lee has recorded a radio ad that is playing in South Carolina ahead of the Democratic primary in that state this Saturday.
"Wake up South Carolina, this is your dude Spike Lee!"
Lee then goes on to discuss the economic woes of the middle class before giving Sanders a socialist type endorsement."And that is why I am endorsing my brother Bernie."
In addition to singing Sanders' praises for his civil rights record, Lee trumpet's Sanders and his determination to take on Wall Street and refusal to take corporate donations.
"Bernie takes no money from corporations — nadda — which means he is not on the take. And when Bernie gets to the White House: he will do the right thing."
