Actor Comes to Campus to Stump for Candidate

Students flocked by the hundreds to the UCSB Arbor Tuesday afternoon to hear actor Danny DeVito stump for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders during a brief visit to the campus facilitated by student group UCSB For Bernie.

From an elevated platform, DeVito offered a short rallying cry to the voting-age population, punctuated by jabs at corporate media for suppressing the message of Sanders supporters. After a few minutes of speaking, the actor posed for selfies with attendees in exchange for their voter registrations.

“We have to show them how much we care about people — everybody in the world, not just like one or two people in the world,” DeVito told the crowd.
