    Bernie is the answer to democracy. Don’t be on the wrong side of history

    This just makes me believe more and more that Bernie could have beat Trump. I want a woman president as much as the next person but tearing apart the democratic voters was not the way to do it.

    So, once again, free speech is only acceptable when everyone agrees with the accuser?! Not only was HRC a terrible choice, but she LOST to the absolute worst presidential candidate we ever had in American history?! Sad to see this kind of divisiveness here.

    That was so sad to see (People either not voting or voted for tRUMP) but that's the mindset of the average citizen/s who think they know what they are talking about, and/or what they want :( "CLUELESS!"

    Donna Brazile just admitted that the DNC rigged the election for Hillary. But if the hacked DNC emails didn't convince you nothing will. You have a lot of nerve to bring up John Lewis' sacrifices for voters rights while giggling about the DNC ignoring the undermining of democracy in the committee.

    Disingenuous of this show to not understand that Bernie was cheated! Look at the DNC fraud lawsuit going on, that was dismissed, and how the DNC stole the nomination. Voter purges mainly and hackable machines used in swing districts. Voter ID laws.
    More Bernie supporters voted for Hillary, than Hillary supporters voted for Obama in '08! Clearly, it does NOT add up!

    way to look like whack-ohs bernie supporters---like Ash said; they supported Trump because they had so much hate for Hillary-they didn't sound too different from the Trumpsters.

    I'm from Norway. And I'm not surprised that Hillary lost. But you Americans need to get good salaries and good unions. Workers right. And yes, money out of politics.

    in hindsight bernie supporters, even myself to some extent cos i had voted for clinton in the general election, were beinf far left brats. even when sanders says to team up with clinton they still were just ignoring him and being brats about it.

    For the most part, Sam is usually right but when it comes to Bernie people she takes this condescending tone and I hate it. Yes Hillary won but it wasn't fair that the DNC chair used to work for her that they tried to smear the bernie camp when the dnc was hacked or did people forget that Debbie Wasserman shultz didn't let the bernie camp access their own info because of it. There cases of election fraud but no it was mass scale but still and the super delegates pledging support either because they didn't want to be black listed by the clintons or wanted perks or whatever. It wasn't just that more people voted for her but I'm glad that sam is willing to point out clintons fault especially when she lost. Next time don't talk down to people you need to help your candidate win

      2% dude - Hillary vastly underperformed Obama in key areas. Voters didn't think their vote mattered to getting things accomplished between Trump and Hillary.

    I am really against this hate for people who voted 3rd party in the election. Trump getting elected is awful, but the people who made that happen are not the people who went to the polls and refused to compromise on their values and voted from the heart. Trump won the election because people voted for Trump. And yes, that is tragic and awful and painful, but instead of blaming 3rd party voters for what happened, why not blame the liberals for continuing to front garbage pails for presidential races, or perhaps, crazy thought, blame the people who actually voted for this flaming dumpster pile of phobias and misogyny? They're the people who drove him to the White House, parked his car for him and gave him the keys to front door. Go be mad at those people.

    I was 10000000000% for Bernie and heartbroken by his loss, but the whole "voting for a lesser of two evils is still voting for evil"/refusal of Bernie supporters to vote for Hillary thing is totally unhelpful. A third party candidate was never going to win that election; after Hillary became the democratic nominee it was either her or trump, and choosing to vote for stein or Johnson, or not vote at all, is an implicit vote for trump. The fact that these people could not see outside of their own ideological bubbles long enough to vote in favor of supporting the greater good (Supreme Court justice appointments *alone* should have been reason enough to back Hillary) boggles my mind. I share the Bernie-or-bust movement's frustration and desire for radical change, but when you're faced with a choice between incremental progress or a return to the pre-civil rights era under a fascist dictatorship, YOU CHOOSE INCREMENTAL PROGRESS EVERY TIME!!!!!

    Want to see you be the next Jon Stewart... not whatever it is you're headed toward.

    Samantha doesn't understand that the Bernie Sanders "cult of personality" is not what these convention protesters are fighting for. Bernie represented a movement. A movement which Samantha and the corporate media didn't see or don't want to see. This movement must take over the DNC! It must find common ground with the Trumpsters. Finding the better natures of the Trumpster's angles is THE way forward. There's good and evil in everyone.

    Guess who owns TBS, the network this aired on? Time Warner, Hillary's 4th biggest Donor. Makes a lot of sense when they call Bernie supporters "Bernie or Bust Motherfuckers." Makes a lot of sense when they label Hillary as "incremental progress." She is more of a conservative and a lot more moderate than Obama, and we made almost zero progress under him. We cemented the Bush Tax Cuts, passed Romney Care, and didn't slow down the military industrial complex at all.

    bernie and hillary have very similar political views. bernie supporters who don't want to vote for her has been duped by republican smear campaigns or are subconsciously sexist. there's no rational reason for ANY bernie supporter to not vote for hillary it's that simple.

    To provide a quick bit of context (unlike this segment did), I'm a fan of Samantha Bee, I like Full Frontal, I wanted Bernie to win while he was running and now that he's not I hope Hillary will win, even though I'm not a massive fan of her. I'm not American, but I'd be voting Hillary if I was.
    That all being said, this segment was all kinds of wrong. Mocking people for peacefully protesting and implying that any vote not for Hillary is a vote for Trump? This is why you have so many disenfranchised people who don't want to vote this election. You're working to bolster the two party system that led directly to a battle between two of the least popular candidates of all time.
    Again, if I was American, I'd be voting Hillary. This doesn't come from a place of disagreement. Bernie has stepped aside with grace and humility, even though there was room for him to continue to fight, and it seems logical to me that supporters of Bernie would follow his lead, even if it's with the understanding that this issue will be returned to later. I am no "Bernie or Bust" supporter. But if you insist on suggesting that any vote for a third party candidate is a vote for Trump, you are pushing thousands of voters further and further away. If anything, voting third party is more like a vote for whoever is leading the polls, which is... Hillary. So a third party vote helps Clinton by not closing the lead. It's not a vote for Trump, and US politics will be so much better once a third party candidate actually manages to get somewhere. When you can't get votes just by making voters hate the other person more, political discourse will change for the better.
    I hope Hillary wins this election. But I hope every third party, even the ones I disagree with, do very well at the same time. The people featured in this segment are right about one thing - the system needs to change. If you don't think that because of the Democrats, you MUST think that when this is the system that gave us Trump.

    look here's the thing, Hillary was a Democrat for her entire career. Bernie was running as an independent than switched over to Democrat just for the election.
    It's not that it was rigged, it's just that there was a lot more support that accumulated for Hillary over time in the DNC.
    That's just what happens when run independent in this country, you don't receive the support you need.
    That's just how the system works.
    Hillary won 3 million more votes than Bernie.
    If anything it was rigged against her considering Bernie had to drop out TWICE and people still tried to elect him.

    Hey Samantha Bee, do YOU feel extra comforted because of the fact that you're white, now famous, and in the only group of people that even Donald Trump cannot insult without real consequences (rich, white, and attractive young women)?
    Conflating Bernie Sanders supporters with Trump supporters is completely idiotic. Maybe you should have paid attention to the real problems with the primaries such as the massive amount of discrepancy between exit polls and election results, the scandals surrounding voting in Arizona, New York, and California, people having their party affiliations changed or thrown out of the voting system entirely. Just look at all of the WikiLeaks. *Then* you might understand that we do have a leg to stand on when we're angry with the results of the primary because we think they are UNDEMOCRATIC, not that we're upset we didn't win. Check your facts and your privilege.

    MITCHELL WIGGS 3 years ago

    Bernie didn't have to endorse her, or Johnson, or Stein, or anyone. He could have gone back to his (somewhat) normal life with millions of new fans. He endorsed her, however, and is actively campaigning for Hillary. He wants an ally in the White House, not an arch enemy. All of his good work will be undone if Trump gets in there.
