Vermont Senator and former Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders took the stage at the DNC on Monday night, addressing his nearly 2,000 delegates along with the Hillary supporters in attendance with a message of encouragement and slight disappointment.
Bernie’s inability to overcome the rigging done to the DNC system left him in an uncomfortable position, but he did his best to provide a positive message of endorsement for Hillary that his supporters could believe in. Throughout his speech, he looked straight into the camera.
Here are the highlights of the speech, as told by the rest of the Muppets gang.
“I think it’s fair to say that no one is more disappointed than I am.” The DNC responded with this comment…
“We have begun a political revolution to transform America, and our revolution continues.”
Need I say more?
“This election is about ending the grotesque level of income inequality in this country.”
No, Bernie… That’s not what this is about at all.
“The Republicans want us to forget that as a result of the greed, recklessness, and illegal behavior on Wall Street, our economy was in the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.”
We hear ya, Bernie, but you can sit down now.
“I think we can all agree that much, much more needs to be done.”
We can all agree that there is much work to do. Bernie seems to get the wrong answers, somehow, about what that work should be.
“Hillary Clinton must become the next President of the United States.”
“Hillary Clinton will nominate Justices to the Supreme Court who are prepared to overturn Citizens United.”
If corporations aren’t people, can we make celebrities not people, too?
“This election is about climate change.”
Except that it’s not.
“Hillary Clinton understands that a President’s job is to worry about future generations, not the profits of the fossil fuel industry.”
Leave the fossil fuel industry alone, Bernie. ISIS is still not their fault.
#FeelTheBern or nah?
