Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) made a pause during his rally today in Indiana to compliment a supporter who used a vulgar expletive to sum up the Democratic presidential candidate's message for the “billionaire class.”
 
Sanders, who has called himself a “democratic socialist,” told the rally in Evansville: "I think that when the top one-tenth of 1 percent now owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent, we got some other choices that we can make.”
 
“That choice is to tell the billionaire class,” Sanders continued, when a man in the audience interrupted to finish the socialist senator’s sentence by shouting “to f--- off.”
 
Sanders laughed and smiled at the interruption, saying with apparent approval “Well, that is one way to phrase it.”
