Bernie Sanders has zero apps on his phone

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) told The New York Times editorial board in an interview that he recognizes the importance of communicating to millions of people via social media. He said he takes it "very seriously" and "every now and then" even goes so far as to send out a tweet he wrote himself. But he apparently doesn't do that from his phone.

When asked if he had any apps on his phone that might surprise people, Sanders responded "nothing" before claiming he doesn't have any apps on his phone, period.

It's worth noting, however, that unless the senator only carries around a flip phone, he likely has at least a few pre-installed apps on his device. But the point stands.

One thing he definitely doesn't have, though? An Amazon Prime account. Sanders appears to be quite alright waiting three to five business days for his deliveries, thank you very much. Read the rest of Sanders' interview at The New York Times. Tim O'Donnell
