Streamer Tries To Test PUBG Bug, Accidentally Lands Shot Of A Lifetime

Bernie Sanders Finally Appears On His Own Twitch Channel—During Amazon Boycott

Last time we checked in on endearingly grouchy democratic socialist uncle and presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders’ Twitch channel, it was notably lacking in Bernie Sanders himself .
