People are furious that Bernie Sanders just endorsed Hillary Clinton.
Speaking to a crowd in New Hampshire Tuesday, the senator from Vermont thanked the 13 million people who voted for him during the primaries, but noted he didn’t secure enough delegates to win the nomination.
“It is not enough to win the nomination,” Sanders told the crowd. “Hillary Clinton goes into the convention with a lot more delegates. Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nominating process. And I congratulate her.”
“She will be the Democratic nominee for president. I intend to do everything I can to make sure she is the next president of the United States.”
“There is no doubt in my mind that, as we head into November, Hillary Clinton is the best candidate.”
His supporters were not pleased.

Bernie Sanders looks like he’d rather be dead than give a speech endorsing Hillary Clinton.

Endorsing #Hillary is as big a blunder as her Iraq vote. I love him but #Bernie has just proven he doesn’t have the judgment to be president

Does a Bernie endorsement of Hillary actually mean anything? Are any of his remaining supporters gonna say “gee, I should vote for HRC now”?
