Sanders words were immediately met with loud boos, which lasted several seconds even as he tried to continue his speech.
Supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders took a hard turn against Hillary Clinton’s campaign Monday, as the Democratic National Convention kicked off in Philadelphia. Mr. Sanders was met with boos as he asked his fans to support Mrs. Clinton. And protesters borrowed the “Lock her up!” chant from last week’s Republican convention.
The fallout from the Democrats’ email leak continued, as Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz faced a chorus of jeers when she addressed a breakfast meeting of Florida delegates and later said she would not gavel in the convention on Monday
We will keep the commentary to a minimum, and let the videos taken today tell the story. But it’s not pretty, observe:
Marcia Fudge Booed throughout speech:
At every mention of Hillary Clinton’s name, the audience went berserk, but in a bad way. Never have I seen in my life a political party more fractured as the Democrats are right now.
Sarah Silverman & Al Franken booed by Bernie Supporters:
Liberal loudmouth Al Franken looked befuddled, and Sarah Silverman looked on the verge of tears as the audience chanted “Bernie!, Bernie!, Bernie!”.
Sanders Supporters Start Booing Invocation When Hillary Clinton Is Mentioned:
Even during the invocation, every time Crooked Hillary’s name was mentioned, the audience went insane.
Sanders booed after voicing support for Clinton:
Even Bernie Sanders was not immune to the boo birds, the second he mentioned her name his own people imploded. That’s how bad it really is, I’ve never seen anything like it.
Bernie Sanders’s supporters are not all ready to unite behind Hillary Clinton.
Hundreds of Bernie Sanders supporters drowned out the Vermont senator with boos Monday as he tried to make the case that his fans would need to vote for Hillary Clinton to defeat Donald J. Trump.
At a meeting filled with Sanders delegates, Mr. Sanders tried to convince those gathered that Mr. Trump was dangerous and a threat to the Constitution and that as a result, they needed to vote for Mrs. Clinton. However, as he made the argument, the crowd shouted over him and instead chanted, “We want Bernie.”
“We have got to defeat Donald Trump, and we have got to elect Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine,” Mr. Sanders said.
His words were immediately met with loud boos, which lasted several seconds even as he tried to continue his speech. The senator then paused and waited for people to quiet down. But as he spoke, many continued to loudly sigh and shake their heads. source
