Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) celebrated his victory in the New Hampshire Democratic primary by shooting some hoops in a gym before his speech.
The image was shared on his official Snapchat account @bernie.sanders.
What a time to be alive.
Twitter users were amused by the candidate's unusual victory celebration:

The big screen — turned to FOX — at the Sanders rally just showed Sanders playing basketball. The crowd, yes, went nuts.— Gabriel Debenedetti (@gdebenedetti) February 10, 2016
Bernie Sanders is just shooting hoops while he kills time until his victory speech at 9pm. Probably what I'd be doing too. #NHPrimary— Kyle Baysa (@KyleBaysa) February 10, 2016
Oh snap. Fox News just said that Bernie Sanders was better at shooting hoops than President Obama— Charlie Spiering (@charliespiering) February 10, 2016
