The Bernie Sanders show

Facebook / Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders has a TV show these days, as profiled by NBC News' Alex Seitz-Wald. It focuses his newfound social media fame into Facebook Live interviews, featuring Sanders and guests. A fun anecdote from his interview with New Yorker reporter Jane Mayer:

It's Thursday afternoon and Bernie Sanders is on a TV set about to go live when he realizes there's a problem. ... "Does this make me look fat?" he asks, looking down at how his stomach folds into a red upholstered arm chair...

His other guests so far: Rev. William Barber, Josh Fox and Bill Nye.
