How Bernie Sanders greeted Pope Francis
(great video at link, followed immediately by hysterical Colbert interview)

The very minute that Pope Francis set foot on American soil Tuesday, Sen. Bernard Sanders (I-Vt.) stood on the Senate floor hailing his arrival, in a quick demonstration of the political dimensions of the papal visit.

Sanders, a presidential candidate and one of the most liberal members of Congress, spent 11 minutes praising the pope for "speaking out with courage and brilliance about some of the most important issues facing our world" — mainly, matters of economic inequality.

He went on to quote several of Francis's statements in "Evangelii Gaudium," his 2013 exhortation critical of a global economic system that favors the rich over the poor.
