Seth Meyers had a message for the ‘Bernie or Bust’ crowd on Tuesday’s Late Show—HEY! Stop that!
Bernie Sanders supporters have interrupted the Democratic National Convention with boos and jeers this week, because their chosen candidate did not win the nomination. “Look, I know you’re ‘Bernie or Bust,’ but the results are in: ‘bust’ won,” Meyers said in the segment. “We don’t have time for this. Donald Trump is ahead in the polls! The house is on fire. Stop crying ’cause we’re not putting it out with your hose!”
“We are on the cusp of electing a racist demagogue and that never ends well. I don’t know which class you ditched to go to those Bernie rallies but I have a feeling it was History,” Meyers joked.
“I know what you’re gonna say: ‘I don’t know anyone who’s planning to vote for Trump.’ Oh, you don’t? Did you ask everybody in your yoga class? Did you check with the entire drum circle? Because guess what: You know how you have that crazy uncle you only see at Thanksgiving? Well this country is about 48 percent crazy uncles, and it’s about to be Thanksgiving all day, everyday.”
