Seth Meyers just gave die-hard Bernie supports a sincerely needed reality check and we are forever grateful.
In a new segment called “Hey,” Seth told all Bernie Sanders hold-outs what we’ve all been wanting to say: It’s time to give it up.
“I know you’re Bernie or bust, but the results are in—bust won.”
While he joked about all the booing that went on last night — including boos from Bernie Sanders fans at Bernie Sanders — Seth is clearly not messing around.
He told them to “stop crying” because the house is on fire and we’re not putting it out with their hose.
Then he gave them a nugget of truth:
“We’re 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.”
He later added,
“You know how you have that crazy uncle you only see on Thanksgiving? Well, this country is about 48 percent crazy uncles, and it’s about to be Thanksgiving all day every day.”
We’re glad that Seth finally gave it to people straight because it seems like some needed to. While the latest data from the Pew Research Center said 90% of Bernie supports would be open to voting for Hillary, Trump is still unfortunately ahead in the polls.
We get it. Some people really believed in Bernie, and they still do. But the results are in and Hils is officially the democratic nominee. It’s over. And now we have three months to get on the same team. Ok? Let’s go.
