Comedian and Bernie Sanders supporter Sarah Silverman had a message for the “Bernie or bust” proponents chanting her down for endorsing Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on Monday: “You’re being ridiculous.”
Silverman, who was joined onstage by Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota, said the Vermont senator helped to wake people up and “made us understand what is possible.”
She said that she would vote for Clinton “with gusto” and that she continued “to be inspired and move 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,” she said, “and a vital part of that movement is making absolutely sure that Hillary Clinton is the next president of the United States.”
The crowd erupted into competing “Hillary” and “Bernie” chants.
Franken then joined in and started chanting “Hillary, Hillary, Hillary.”
Silverman interrupted with her own chant of “unity, unity, unity.”
“Can I just say to the Bernie or bust people, you’re being ridiculous,” she said.
