"Hillary Clinton is the Democratic nominee and I will vigorously support her. Donald Trump would be a disaster and an embarrassment for our country if he were elected president. His campaign is not based on anything of substance—improving the economy, our education system, healthcare, or the environment. It is based on bigotry. ...I understand that many of my supporters are disappointed by the final results of the nominating process, but being despondent and inactive is not going to improve anything. Going forward and continuing the struggle is what matters. And, in that struggle, the most immediate task we face is to defeat Donald Trump."—Bernie Sanders, in an op-ed for the LA Times today.

But who cares what he says, right? Establishment sellout.

(In case I didn't lay it on thick enough, that was sarcasm.)

Thanks, Bernie.

(And that was not.)
