For months now, Killer Mike has been voicing his support for Bernie Sanders: He and the Vermont senator had a six-part discussion, uploaded to YouTube; he's hit the campaign trail and multiple rallies with Sanders; and he's talked about backing the presidential hopeful everywhere from CNN to HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher.
But his latest endorsement -- contrasting Sanders with his opponent in the Democratic primaries, Hillary Clinton -- was delivered with a force and passion that stands out even among his recent history of Sanders support.
The speech came on the heels of the release of a video of a private Clinton fundraiser, during which the former Secretary of State was interrupted by a protestor while speaking in an intimate setting.
"I am not a super predator, Hillary Clinton," that protestor, Ashley Williams, said, referencing a speech Clinton gave in 1994. "Can you apologize to black people for mass incarceration?"
"Can I talk, and then maybe you can listen to what I say?" Clinton responded, before having Williams removed from the room and pivoting back to her speech: "OK, back to the issues."
Mike contrasted that reaction with Sanders' from an August rally that was similarly interrupted, but where the presidential hopefully instead allowed the protestors to step to the mic and speak.
Something tells me this won't be the last of Killer Mike's moments like this.
