Adding to the endless list of presidential candidates making appearances on talk shows, Bernie Sanders made an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” in an episode set to air Thursday.
The Democratic candidate came out dancing to The Trammps’ “Disco Inferno” from the movie “Saturday Night Fever” before sitting down with the host to discuss his campaign, Wednesday’s Democratic debate and the disappearance of the middle class.
“You have in corporate America today you have incredible greed,” Sanders told DeGeneres. “I don’t know when they think enough is enough. They want more and more and more.”
“So you have multi billionaires right now contributing money to candidates and what these candidates are doing at the behest of the billionaires is saying lets cut social security,” he continued. “Now I can’t explain to you the mentality of somebody who wants to do that especially people who have so much money. Why? But that’s the kind of greed mentality that we’re fighting.”
DeGeneres also put Sanders in the Hot Seat, which challenged him to answer personal questions in exchange for money donated to breast cancer research.
The senator ended up raising $10,000 for charity by revealing that the candidate he’d most like to be stranded on a desert island with is Marco Rubio, that his go-to karaoke song is “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees and that he prefers briefs over boxers.
