Ronda Rousey Just Endorsed Bernie Sanders For President

Ronda Rousey might have just outed herself as a socialist, and what are you going to do about it punk?

In an interview with Maxim Magazine, Rousey said that she was pulling for Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders to be the next president.

“I’m voting for Bernie Sanders, because he doesn’t take any corporate money,” Rousey said to Maxim. “I don’t think politicians should be allowed to take money for their campaigns from outside interests.”

But just because Rousey, the current UFC world bantamweight champion supports Sanders, don’t expect her to be there for Hillary if she wins the primary.

Rousey said that she is not a fan of Clinton and that she would only support Sanders or a third party candidate.

“I voted for Roseanne last time,” Rousey told Maxim. “Mostly I went in to vote for all the state and local things. I was so unimpressed with the whole presidential campaign that I picked whatever third party I saw, and I saw Roseanne and thought, ‘That’s awesome.’ But I’m really pulling for Sanders this time. I hope it works out.”

Sanders also picked up the endorsement of well known civil rights activist and author Cornell West, who is planning to stump for the candidate in Iowa this weekend.
