Bernie Sanders is a bad*ss; this is evident by watching his countless speeches before the senate, and general attitude of giving no f*cks. So when I first heard his secret service code-name, I wasn’t at all surprised by it. Yesterday, “The Bill Press Show” released the following, somewhat sensitive, information on their Twitter feed:
According to Merriam Webster, the word intrepid is defined as meaning: “characterized by resolute fearlessness, fortitude, and endurance.” There is probably no other word that fits Mr. Sanders better.

Bernie fans flocked in droves to Twitter, to let their opinions be known:
One thing is for sure, Bernie fans alike agree that the perfect word was chosen to describe and identify the next President of our United States, Bernie Sanders. According to Huffington Post:
‘The word “intrepid” also brings to mind the USS Intrepid, a decommissioned aircraft carrier that saw service during World War II and Vietnam and is now a museum ship in New York City. Sanders, however, has opposed many military actions including the Vietnam War and the war in Iraq.’
