Bernie Sanders endorsed Hillary Clinton two weeks ago — and we just saw a dramatic demonstration that not all of his supporters are particularly happy about it.
While addressing a rally of Sanders supporters in Philadelphia on Monday afternoon, the senator said, "We have got to defeat Donald Trump, and we have got to elect Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine" — and he was met by a chorus of boos.

The loud booing continued for some time. "Brothers and sisters. This is the real world that we live in," Sanders said. "Trump is a bully and a demagogue. Trump has made bigotry the cornerstone of his campaign."
Sanders will speak in primetime at the Democratic National Convention tonight.
