Bernie Sanders Responds To Supporters Who Feel Betrayed By Hillary Endorsement

Sympathize

George Stephanopoulos recently asked Bernie Sanders why he’s supporting Hillary Clinton at this time. Bernie’s first response: Donald Trump. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"GMA host George Stephanopoulos referenced two Facebook posts from disgruntled Sanders supporters: "You broke my heart and betrayed the Left, Sen. Sanders," said one person. "You chose her over us," said another.

"What do you say to your supporters who feel betrayed," Stephanopoulos asked.

"What I say is it is absolutely imperative for the future of this country that Donald Trump not be elected President of the United States," Sanders responded. "At a time when this country has enormous crises, we do not, and can not have a man with Trump's temperament with the nuclear code and running the country."

"So it is about the lesser of two evils?" Stephanopoulos followed up.

"No, it is not about the lesser of two evils," Sanders replied. "If you look at issue by issue, we have Hillary Clinton who wants to significantly raise the minimum wage — we have millions of workers in this country working on starvation wages. We have Donald Trump who wants to let states have the right to do away with the concept of the minimum wage. People could be working for five bucks an hour.””*

    It is funny Cenk and Bernie suddenly started believing her campaign
    promises.

      Right except literally nothing Hillary says can be taken seriously. She
      doesn’t mean anything she says in politics. Only if it will benefit her,
      that’s all. Period.

      +ianbenjiman Exactly. The only thing Clinton cares about is herself, power,
      money, and influence are the *only* things that matter to her, and to hell
      with anybody or anything else.

      Because those are the ones that were part of the “capitulation package”
      that Sanders negotiated in favor of his endorsement.

      Remember that Al Gore in fact won the 2000 presidential election. The
      counting was stopped by the supreme court but the counting organised by 2
      newpsaper soon after showed that in fact he had won

      +Tripp K I don’t know much about Jill Stein, but based off her web page she
      is advocating policies that are nearly identical to Sanders. I see him
      being closer to her than Clinton so I doubt that’s it.

    • Derrick helms
      July 15, 2016 at 5:56 PM

      I’ve been a Bern supporter from the start, but the only insane thing Bern
      could’ve done was accept Jill’s invitation to take over the third party or
      not endorse Hillary. This would split the party even more, and allow Trump
      the win. Trump will be worse than George W. Bush’s third term, we have to
      put this menace down one way or another. I think voting 3rd party is a way
      to vote against both of these candidates, a completely sane thing to do;
      however, I also think voting Hillary to take down the menace that is Trump
      is another completely sane thing to do. I see nothing insane about either
      of those options, and especially if Bern didn’t endorse Hillary, with all
      the power and influence he has; I would be questioning his mental state.
      But we have a lot of options, whereas our leaders’ actions are limited if
      they think ahead, which is exactly what Bern was doing.

    It amazes me that he talks about Trump’s temperament vs. Hillary’s. Hillary
    is literally regarded by everyone that personally knows her as a complete
    scumbag that has an amazingly crazy temper. Bernie has sold his soul. It’s
    easy to see.

    • bob boberson
      July 15, 2016 at 6:12 PM

      bernie didnt really have a choice. he knows his supporters are smart enough
      to vote green party. Even if trump wins we will most likely have a
      democratic senate and possibly house.

    I don’t care what anyone says, if Bernie was honest and said it’s the
    lesser of two evils and was real with us then it’d be easier to understand,
    but he’s literally supporting her. That’s not the Bernie we voted for lol.

    • JV Cooperative
      July 15, 2016 at 3:56 PM

      Right, you misread. I meant that he should have held out until right
      before the election while continuing to build the movement and/or a new
      party rather than funneling all of our momentum into a criminal campaign
      which did nothing but give Berniecrats black eyes.

      policies…

    She doesn’t want to do any of that, she is just saying she will, she will
    say anything to get elected. In the end she will just compromise with the
    republican controlled congress, and end up with her original plans.

      Trump and Hillary are both proven to be pathological liars and they’ll both
      say whatever they think pleases their respective side’s ears.

      Nobody has any idea whatsoever what either of them actually have planned
      for this country because they can’t keep their platforms or their stories
      straight.
