Bernie Sanders is under tremendous pressure from the Democratic Party to get his supporters united behind Hillary Clinton but apparently he’s not doing it fast enough.
In a recent meeting with House Democrats, Sanders actually got booed.
Sanders booed by House Democrats
Sen. Bernie Sanders is still talking like a guy who’s running for president. But frustrated House Democrats — who booed him at one point during a morning meeting — say it’s time to stop.
With the Democratic convention just weeks away, Sanders still hasn’t endorsed one-time rival Hillary Clinton and dodged questions about when he would during a tense meeting Wednesday morning with House Democrats.
Sanders also stunned some of the Democrats in attendance when he told them that winning elections isn’t the only thing they should focus on. While they wanted to hear about how to beat Donald Trump — and how Sanders might help them win the House back — he was talking about remaking the country.
“The goal isn’t to win elections, the goal is to transform America,” Sanders said at one point, according to multiple lawmakers and aides in the room.
Some Democrats booed Sanders for that line, which plays better on the campaign trail than in front of a roomful of elected officials.
House Democrats overwhelmingly supported Hillary Clinton during the presidential primary fight, so it was not surprising that Sanders got a cool reception from them.
But frustration with Sanders was also evident. Rank-and-file House Democrats want the Vermont independent to officially drop out of the race and throw his support behind the presumptive nominee, and they can’t understand why he hasn’t.
So the Democratic Party totally rigged their primary to favor Hillary Clinton and completely screwed Bernie Sanders but now Democrats are mad at him for not making Hillary’s election easier?
You may not agree with any of Bernie’s Socialist ideas but it’s easy to see he’s been treated unfairly by Democrats. All they care about is remaining in power.
