"I have said in many a rap, I don't trust the church or the government, a Democrat, Republican, a pope, a bishop or those other men," Killer Mike said in his introduction. "But after spending five hours tonight, after spending five hours with someone who has spent the last 50 years radically fighting for your rights and mine, I can tell you that am very proud tonight to announce the next president of the United States, Sen. Bernie Sanders."
