Justin Vernon blasts Hillary Clinton in Twitter wrangle

This is a really interesting thread if you can follow it through. Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon has got involved in a Twitter spat after attacking Hillary Clinton’s recent comments about Bernie Sanders.

And a Twitter row ensued. You can read the whole story over at Stereogum here. In the meantime if the world is all getting a bit much at the moment, here’s Justin not arguing about politics (although he is of course right).
