Breastfeeding Juggalette at Bernie Sanders Rally News Interview

An Ohio Juggalette at the Cleveland Bernie Sanders Rally got captured breastfeeding her 6 month old baby. The photo went viral not for her love of ICP, but for being a proud public breastfeeding mom. Bernie Sanders even went up to her at the end of the rally and thanked her for being a good mom. Now, ABC 15 news conducted an interview with this Juggalette, Elle Bradford. Though ABC never touches on the subject of her Juggaloism, Elle is a prime example of all the decent, productive Juggalos in this world showing we are not the stereotype usually put forth in the mainstream.  Read and watch the interview below.

Breastfeeding Juggalette News Interview

BARBERTON, OH – A photo of a local mother breastfeeding at Bernie Sanders’ rally in Cleveland is going viral — and sparking a surprising reaction.

At just six-months-old, Harper Bradford is already making a pretty strong political statement. Not with her words — but with her mouth.

Barberton mom Elle Bradford brought her baby to Bernie Sanders’ rally last Thursday and while she was “feeling the Bern,” baby Harper felt something else, too.

Hungry.

“There is no, ‘I’m feeding you in 10 minutes.’ It’s, ‘I’m feeding you right here, right now, or you’re screaming,” Bradford said.

So sitting second row, just feet away from the Democratic Presidential candidate, Bradford did what a mom has to do — and proof of it captured in a photo is now going viral.

But what makes the photo even more special for the family is that Bradford’s 3-year-old son Gavin was born with a hole in his heart and had to be tube-fed, making it impossible for her to ever nurse him.

“So this being her last baby, she was determined to do the breastfeeding and do it well,” said grandma Lee Bradford.

Bradford said Jane Sanders even came by after Bernie’s speech to thank her for being a mother. And the reaction she’s gotten from the public as the photo is shared thousands of times on social media, she said, has been primarily positive.

“I’m shocked,” she said, “And pleasantly surprised.”

Both mom and baby plan to be back in Cleveland when Bernie Sanders returns this Saturday.
