His supporters are loyal to the end. Even when their own ‘leader’ is telling them to vote for someone else. Things are getting cray cray on the left side of the aisle. More crazy than they’ve already been.
Bernie Sanders issued a desperate plea to his supporters not to demonstrate or disrupt the Democratic National Convention on Monday night.
‘I ask you as a personal courtesy to me to not engage in any kind of protest on the floor,’ wrote Sanders in a text message.
‘Its of utmost importance you explain this to your delegations.’
Terrified that any display of disunity will play into Donald Trump’s hands, Sanders issued his frantic request saying ‘our credibility as a movement will be damaged by booing, turning of backs, walking out or other similar displays.’
Although Sanders eventually endorsed Clinton, his supporters were incensed after the Wikileaks release of emails which showed the Democrat Party leadership exchanged extremely disparaging remarks about his campaign to defeat her.
Indeed, following his texts the Democratic National Convention officially apologized to Bernie Sanders tonight for emails sent by party officials.
‘On behalf of everyone at the DNC, we want to offer a deep and sincere apology to Senator Sanders, his supporters, and the entire Democratic Party for the inexcusable remarks made over email,’ DNC officials said Monday in a statement.
Incoming Interim DNC chair Donna Brazile and others who signed on said the behavior of party leadership was ‘disrespectful’ and they were taking ‘appropriate action.’
Donald Trump meanwhile continued his campaign to undercut Sanders and convince the senator’s primary voters to switch parties in November.
Sanders’ has ‘done such a complete fold,’ he said today on Twitter, and has ‘totally given up’ on the political revolution that he promised.
Sanders was shouted down by his own supporters today as he urged them to vote for Hillary Clinton in the general election to keep Trump from winning the White House.
‘We have got to elect Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine,’ he said, eliciting boos from his delegates this afternoon.
As the shouting continued, he said, ‘Brothers and sisters, brothers and sisters. This is the real world that we live in.’
