I hate to say I told you so, so I won't. (But I did.)BREAKING: Bernie Sanders endorses Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, says `she must become our next president.'— The Associated Press (@AP) July 12, 2016
Update: Donald Trump marks the occasion, as only he can.
I guess perhaps he was hoping Sanders would endorse him?Bernie Sanders, who has lost most of his leverage, has totally sold out to Crooked Hillary Clinton. He will endorse her today - fans angry!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 12, 2016
Update 2: Courtesy of NPR: "Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nominating process, and I congratulate her for that," Sanders said. "She will be the Democratic nominee for president and I intend to do everything I can to make certain she will be the next president of the United States.
"I have come here today not to talk about the past but to focus on the future. That future will be shaped more by what happens on November 8 in voting booths across our nation than by any other event in the world. I have come here to make it as clear as possible as to why I am endorsing Hillary Clinton and why she must become our next president."
Sanders is still talking so I am sure there will be more to add later.
Update 3: Oh hell Jill Stein is losing her shit right now!
More courtesy of Politico:Many Berning hearts are breaking right now. 💔— Dr. Jill Stein (@DrJillStein) July 12, 2016
On the same day Bernie Sanders officially endorsed Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination and declared she will make an "outstanding president," presumptive Green Party nominee Jill Stein was having none of it.
"If you don't want to vote for a war monger or racist billionaire, there are more options. The political revolution will keep going," Stein tweeted in the hour preceding Sanders' announcement alongside Clinton in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
In another tweet, Stein wrote, "While Trump praises dictators, Hillary takes their money. Remind us again of Saudi Arabia's human rights record?"
Holy shit, she's a crazy person.
And here I thought the best part of the day would be watching the Bernie-bots crying into their bongs.
