At the Democratic National Convention there has been a real push to promote party unity to ensure that the party has the best chance to defeat Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump this November. However, it seems that the members of the 'Bernie or Bust' group have been making things a little more difficult at the DNC. Seth Meyers has a response for them...
Despite major support from people like First Lady Michelle Obama, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and Senator Bernie Sanders himself, the first night of the DNC's events were marred by protests from the 'Bernie or Bust' crowd.
Seth Meyers took the chance to address these members with an all new segment on his Late Night NBC show called 'Hey!'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvV2JY8kbgI
With Hillary Clinton officially being named the Democratic party's presidential nominee at the end of the second night of the week's Democratic National Convention, his segment comes at the perfect time. The segment was directly aimed towards the group and seems to come just in time to try to address its members.
"I know you're 'Bernie or Bust' but the results are in. Bust won. We don't have time for this," said Seth Meyers in his new segment. "We are on the cusp of electing a racist demagogue, and that never ends well."
Sanders played a major role in the announcement of Clinton as the nominee, has publicly endorsed her, and even spoke in support of her at the first night of the convention. The senator has also called out the members of this group for protesting his support of Clinton.
"It's easy to boo," said Sanders to the protesters. "But it is harder to look your kids in the face who will be living under a Donald Trump presidency."
With Clinton's official nomination and the speeches from Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama, hopefully the protesters will finally understand the importance of everyone being united under the Democratic Party to defeat Trump in November.
