Bernie Sanders has created a Frankenstein that he no longer control [View all]

I just saw Sanders addressing his supporters and received cheers all around when reviewing his stump speech, but when he tried to tack to attacking Trump and promoting the support of Hillary, the boos drowned out any cheers. To me he seemed surprised by the response. I think he will now have to enjoy life under the bus, he is certainly not driving any more.

The far left radicals seem determined to go their own way, destroy the convention, and ensure that the rest of us spend the next four years under Donald Trump.

Trump's campaign director is on CNN right now saying that the Sanders people are right to be pissed off. He is gleeful, literally gleeful that his will not be the only convention distroyed by decent.
