Sarah Silverman Gets Booed During DNC Speech After Calling ”Bernie or Bust” Supporters ”Ridiculous”
Sarah Silverman’s controversial speech during the first day of the Democratic National Convention was met with an equal mix of cheers and boos.
The comedienne spoke about being a proud Bernie Sanders supporter but explained why she will be ultimately be voting for Hillary Clinton.
“I support Bernie Sanders and the movement behind him…Hillary heard the passion of the passion, the people behind Bernie, and brought those passions into the party’s platform and that is the process of democracy at its very best,” she told the excited crowd.
“It’s so inspiring that just a few years ago she was a secretary and now she’s going to be president,” Silverman joked before adding, “I will vote for Hillary with gusto as I continue to be inspired and moved to action by the ideals set forth by Bernie who will never stop fighting for us.”
But it was the end of her speech which garnered the most controversial reaction from the crowd inside the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
Silverman, alongside Senator Al Franken, was asked to stall onstage while Paul Simon prepared for his set when she blurted: “To the Bernie or bust people, you’re being ridiculous. They told us to stretch so I figured I’d add that.”
