Sarah Silverman DNC 2016 Speech

Sarah Silverman Shuts Down DNC Hillary Haters in 3 Words

During her speech at the DNC tonight, Sarah Silverman endorsed Hillary Clinton. Despite campaigning for Bernie Sanders up until the convention, Silverman said, "Hillary is our Democratic nominee and I will proudly vote for her." Silverman held nothing back, laying out a path for fellow Bernie supporters to get on board. She said, "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. I am proud to be a part of Bernie's movement and a vital part of that movement, and a vital part of that movement is making sure Hillary Clinton is the next president of the United States."

"To the Bernie or Bust people: you're being ridiculous."

Despite her enthusiasm, Sarah's endorsement was loudly drowned out by both boos and cheers for "Bernie." However, after she finished her prepared speech, Sarah had blunt words for those in the audience claiming to be Bernie or Bust. Visibly frustrated, trying to speak over the chants, Sarah addressed the audience and announced, "Can I just say to the Bernie or Bust people: you're being ridiculous." And with one sentence, she summarized what many Hillary Clinton supporters are thinking.
