Bernie Sanders Saves Woman From Getting Hit By Car

Sen. Bernie Sanders to the rescue.

It was just an ordinary day Wednesday when Sanders stepped outside his office for a break. But in that time, according to a Facebook post, he stopped a woman from getting hit by a car on her way to a guitar lesson. She thanked him with a selfie.

Washington Post reporter Jeff Stein tweeted that apparently Sanders went back to the office and didn’t say a word about the ordeal. His team found out about it later on Facebook.
