Check out Bernie Sanders scoring buckets before his Las Vegas town hall

I’ve got a feeling he’s a hustler on the court.

Bernie Sanders shooting baskets

Sporting activities have long been a past time for politicians. We saw plenty of instances of Barack Obama playing basketball, and plenty of presidents over the years were notable athletes.

Let’s add Bernie Sanders to the mix. He is a basketball fan who likes shooting hoops on the side. It sounds like he takes some pleasure in it and the practice can help loosen him up for rallies and events.

On Sunday, prior to a town hall in Las Vegas, his wife Jane O’Meara Sanders shot some video of the presidential candidate shooting the basketball. He knocked down five straight shots and six of seven in impressive fashion from mid-range. If you find yourself squaring off with Senator Sanders, be wary of the potential hustle!
