Sarah Silverman: Bernie or Bust 'Being Ridiculous'

The supporters of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders continue to ‘feel the Bern,’ despite their preferred candidate throwing his own support in the direction of Hillary Clinton. They’ve even taken their self-described ‘revolution’ to the floor of this week’s Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, and there are no signs of a quick solution that will soothe some of their angst. According to Politico, Sarah Silverman has joined the chorus of those that are hoping that they simmer down a bit.

Silverman, a Sanders supporter herself, took the stage at the DNC and called for some much-needed party unity.

“I am proud to be a part of Bernie’s movement. And part of that movement is to make sure Hillary Clinton is our next president of the United States,” she said.

That didn’t go over too well with the pro-Sanders attendees, and she was resoundingly booed by that wing of the delegation.

“Bernie or Bust people, you’re being ridiculous,” she attempted to joke.

That line fell flat as well, and the boos and catcalls grew louder. She was joined onstage by Minnesota Senator Al Franken, and the pair would engage in an awkward back and forth before introducing Paul Simon, who would ironically perform his timeless classic “Bridge Over Troubled Water.”
