The #BernieOrBust crowd has been busy making headlines at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia this week, with a number of planned protests against establishment Democrats and their soon-to-be leader, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
‘I felt he worked so hard for the 99 percent, I could do my little bit and come to the convention to [get out] two messages: to still support him and also protest the Democratic National Committee.’
But some folks are becoming fed up with the relentless pursuits of the “Bernie or Bust” crowd. Seth Meyers, host of “Late Night,” thinks it’s time for Bernie supporters to move on and support Clinton heading into the general election.
Meyers has never been a fan of The Donald and is hellbent on doing whatever it takes to stop him from becoming president. He actively speaks out against Trump’s joke of a presidential campaign every chance he gets.
On Monday evening, Meyers revealed a new segment of “Late Night” called “HEY!” during which he discussed the importance of moving beyond “Bernie or Bust” and supporting the candidate who seems less likely to destroy the country. He told the audience:
‘I know you’re “Bernie or Bust.” “Bust” won. We don’t have time for this.’
‘We’re on the cusp of electing a racist demagogue, and that never ends well. I don’t know which class you ditched to go to those Bernie rallies, but I have a feeling it was history.’
Jokingly, he went on to compare the “Bernie or Bust” crowd to basketball fans, saying:
‘You’re like a Cavalier’s fan who goes to the games and boos when Lebron dunks with the wrong hand.’
He went on:
‘Oh wait — that would never happen because that is ridiculous!’
Meyers went on to call out the people who still foolishly believe their fellow Americans won’t actually vote for Trump:
‘You know how you have that crazy uncle you only see at Thanksgiving? Well this country is about 48 percent crazy uncles! It’s about to be Thanksgiving all day, everyday. Please don’t say pass the gravy — because if Trump’s elected, no one gets gravy. Trump gets ALL of the gravy!’
