[Ed. – Truthfully, could anyone blame them if they didn’t?]
When Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders finally announced he was suspending his campaign — but oddly, that he will remain on the ballot and collect delegates — the news hit his supporters understandably hard.
Despite Sanders’ clear lack of viability over the past month, and a pandemic that paralyzed his and all political campaigns, his proponents reacted to the news with varied degrees of sadness, appreciation and defiance.
Comedian Sarah Silverman: “Wow. I’m heartbroken about Bernie.”
Democratic Socialist activist Meagan Day: “Bernie Sanders upended American politics and we’re never going back thank god.”
Record producer and Sanders supporter Tommie Sunshine tweeted: “Don’t get it twisted, @BernieSanders is still on the ballot in every Primary yet to vote & I will get to vote for him in NY.”
