“Bernie is a sellout”..Sanders supporters blast him for endorsing Hillary Clinton
Sanders supporters have launched a backlash against the former Democratic presidential candidate after he officially endorsed his opponent, Hillary Clinton, for president.
The Vermont senator appeared with Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, at a campaign event in New Hampshire and endorsed her while she stood by his side.
“Hillary Clinton will make a great president and I am proud to stand with her today,” Sanders said.
A tirade of disappointed and angry comments poured in online as Sanders made his speech, with many feeling cheated and used by the self-described “democratic socialist.”
Nearly a month after the last Democratic primary, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) has officially endorsed Hillary Clinton, his one-time rival and the party’s presumptive nominee, for president.
“Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nominating process and I congratulate her for that. She will be the democratic nominee for the president and I intend to do everything i can to make certain she will be the next president of the United States,” he said joining Clinton in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, where he trounced her in the first primary of the season. Its location is reminiscent of 2008, when then-Senator Clinton (D-New York) conceded the Democratic nomination to Senator Barack Obama (D-Illinois) at a rally in Unity, New Hampshire.
The pair entered the rally as Bruce Springsteen’s ‘We Take Care of Our Own’ blared. Clinton and Sanders each wore blue.
Sanders began his remarks by thanking the people who voted for him, especially in New Hampshire, where he received his first victory, and in Vermont, his home state. He also thanked those who volunteered for his campaign and the 2.5 million people who donated “small, individual contributions.”
“Together, we have begun a political revolution to transform America and that revolution continues. Together, we continue the fight to create a government which represents all of us, and not just the one percent – a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice,” Sanders said, saying how proud he was of the campaign he had run. He then noted that, although he had won almost 1,900 delegates in the primaries and caucuses in 22 states, Clinton “goes into the convention with 389 more pledged delegates than we have and a lot more superdelegates.”
“Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nominating process, and I congratulate her for that. She will be the Democratic nominee for president and I intend to do everything I can to make certain she will be the next president of the United States,”Sanders said, officially endorsing her.
