Sarah Silverman To Bernie Or Bust: You’re Being Ridiculous At DNC 7/25/16. Democratic convention live: Sarah Silverman tells Bernie or Bust: ‘You’re being ridiculous’ Comedian Sarah Silverman says that Bernie Sanders supporters who won’t vote for Hillary Clinton are “being ridiculous.” Silverman supported Sanders in the primary. She appeared on the stage with former comedian and current Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) who has been a Hillary Clinton supporter from the beginning. Sarah Silverman said Democratic voters who are still supporting Bernie Sanders are being “ridiculous.” Sarah Silverman did a few of her least-edgy minutes of comedy ever, and when she got to the part where she told the crowd she was voting for a “kick-ass woman” named Hillary Clinton, the room swelled with applause.
As the ovations subsided, though, Sanders supporters remained standing to chant “Bernie! Bernie!” After Silverman and Senator Al Franken tried to divert them to chants of “Unity! Unity!”, Silverman just spoke her mind: Can I just say to the Bernie or bust people, you’re being ridiculous. And in future news, Sarah Silverman quit Twitter three hours from now. The 45-year-old comedian — who has been a vocal Sanders supporter over the last few months — addressed the Democratic National Convention alongside Senator Al Franken Monday night. “As some of you may know i support bernie sanders and the movement behind him,” Sanders told the crowd in the Wells Fargo Center. “He’s succeeded in so many ways.”
“He made us realize what was possible and what we deserveBernie showed us that all Americans deserve quality healthcare and education, not just the elite.”
But when Silverman said she was now supporting Clinton as the Democratic nominee, parts of the crowd began chanting, “Bernie! Bernie! Bernie!” Then other parts of the arena also began chanting, “Hillary! Hillary! Hillary”
“Can I just say to the “Bernie or bust” people: You’re being ridiculous,” Silverman said.
