watch Jack White play Bernie Sanders rally in Detroit
Bernie Sanders was campaigning in Detroit on Sunday and Jack White was there to stump for him and play a few songs. "Bernie Sanders is telling the truth, and I really do trust him," White told the crowd at Cass Technical High School (which he went to and graduated from), adding his motivation for coming to the rally was Sanders' promise to abolish the electoral college, “the reason we’re in the mess we’re in now.” White's set included four White Stripes songs ("Icky Thump," "Black Math," "We're Going to Be Friends," and "Seven Nation Army"), two solo numbers ("Corporation," "Connected by Love") and a cover of Bob Dylan's "License to Kill," which he said reminded him "of the man in office right now."
