27 Enthusiastic Photos Of Bernie Sanders Looking So Passionate, You'll Feel The Bern Through The Screen — PHOTOS

Wednesday night's CNN debate was rife with fervid statements and heated arguments, but even with the energies of all 11 GOP candidates combined, it was utterly stale compared to a Bernie Sanders speech. Sanders has enough passion in his little pinky to solve the energy crisis (if only we could figure out a way to bottle it). There's a reason the man draws crowds so massive that they make Hillary Clinton's — or any other candidate's — campaign stops look like poetry readings. Sanders is utterly captivating and people love not only hearing his electric speeches, but they also love watching his face run the gamut of expressions, his flowing white hair sway, and his hands wave like a conductor during an orchestral crescendo. Even in still photos, it's plain to see that Bernie Sanders is one passionate man.

Whether he's delivering an angry rant about the wealth gap or sincerely supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, Sanders is exhilarating to listen to and watch. His so-called grassroots army has been able to galvanize hundreds of thousands of supporters and campaign crowds five times the size of Clinton's, and it's all fueled by their tireless leader. There's even a set of Berniemojis that celebrate his many expressions.

If you're not familiar with the Independent turned Democrat, and underdog turned real threat, then take a look at these 27 photos of Sanders looking so passionate, you'll feel the Bern through the screen.
