A TMZ reporter bombarded Run the Jewels rapper and outspoken Bernie Sanders advocate Killer Mike at LAX baggage claim Friday to get his thoughts on the election now that Clinton has cinched the Democratic nomination.

Mike, who has already proven himself time and time again to be an articulate and outspoken progressive thinker, told the guy he wasn't sure who he was planning to vote for in November—but whoever it is, it won't be Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.

"If you don't want any war, you'd be voting Jill Stein. If you want less government and war, you'd be voting Gary Johnson. But if you're voting for Trump or Hillary Clinton, you're voting for the same thing," Mike said. "All of us, as citizens, need to kind of get over our classisms and vote for the betterment of us all."

Mike's been pretty quiet since Sanders left the presidential contest, but is still keeping careful watch on the election cycle. When questioned about Trump's latest "joke" about "Second Amendment people" stopping Clinton, Mike was clear that, no matter how nuts Trump is, he wasn't seriously suggesting violence.

"He's batshit crazy," Mike told the reporter. "But I don't think he would call for the assassination of another presidential candidate."

Mike may still be on the fence about which third-party candidate he wants to support, but in a more perfect world we'd all just be voting for him.
