Bernie Sanders to visit Ireland for the first time ever as part of the Dalkey Book Festival

There's a Twilight Zone / Outer Limits parallel universe version of the world we live in now, except in that one Bernie Sanders won the Presidential election and everything is just swell, day in day out.

While Hilary Clinton hit road-bump after road-bump while duking it out with Trump, most people believe that if Sanders had been the democratic nomination for the presidency, he would've won it hands down.

While that isn't the world we actually get to live in, we are about to be on the receiving end of a pretty close second, as Mr. Sanders himself is about to grace our green isle with his presence.

On 4 June, he will be part of a special event in the Bord Gais Energy Theatre in Dublin, presented by the Dalkey Book Festival.

He'll be interviewed on stage by Irish economist and author David McWilliams, explaining his alternative vision of America and the world, which he wrote about at length in his best-selling book Our Revolution.

You can soon get your tickets to An Evening With Bernie Sanders here, starting at €15 a pop, and just in case you needed a reminder as to why he is a living legend:
