When your dream date isn't available for a special occasion, sometimes you've got to improvise like high school senior Chloe Raynaud. “I hadn't gotten asked yet and prom was approaching quickly, so I was thinking about who would make a good prom date," Raynaud told Revelist. She landed on Bernie Sanders, who honestly seems like he'd make a chill prom date. Raynaud​ wasn't after the real Sanders, though: she ordered a cardboard version of the politician online to serve as her date.

Raynaud took the traditional prom photos with Sanders, whose political standpoints she "really identifies with" and whose cardboard self knows how to do the classic prom pose.

Cute couple that they are, Raynaud dressed in homage to Sanders.
