Just like Elizabeth Warren before him, Bernie Sanders will now be voting for the candidate of big banks and Wall Street. Why did the Democratic Party even bother having a primary? We all knew it would come down to this.
Bernie Sanders: “Yes,” I’ll Vote for Hillary Clinton
Bernie Sanders on Friday said that he will vote for Hillary Clinton this fall. “Yes,” the Vermont senator said when asked the question on MSNBC. “I think the issue right here is: I’m gonna do everything I can to defeat Donald Trump.”
Bernie, though, also made it clear that he has no plans to officially end his campaign before Democrats arrive in Philadelphia later this summer. “What my job right now is,” he said, “is fight for the strongest possible platform at the Democratic convention.” Nonetheless, his admission that he plans to vote for his rival is the latest—and most direct—acknowledgement that the primary race is indeed over. (The furthest Sanders would go during a lengthy C-SPAN interview on Wednesday was to concede, “It doesn’t appear that I’m going to be the nominee.”)

It’s hard to not feel some sympathy for Bernie’s supporters. The Democrat primary was totally rigged for Hillary to win the nomination and she’s totally corrupt.
