Watch Barbara Boxer have a total meltdown when Bernie Sanders fans boo her at Nevada convention
Sen. Barbara Boxer lost her cool with Bernie Sanders’ supporters at the Nevada Democratic convention Saturday.
Boxer, a Hillary Clinton surrogate, took the Las Vegas stage to raucous boos and, at first, tried to bring a unifying message to stop the onslaught.
“I bring a message from Bernie Sanders and I bring a message from Hillary Clinton,” she told the crowd. “We need civility in the Democratic Party. Civility.
But the supporters of the Vermont socialist were still angered that their charge had lost the Nevada caucus and were having none of it.
She then tried reverse psychology on the angry crowd.
When you boo me you’re booing Bernie Sanders. Go ahead. Bernie is my friend. You want to boo Bernie, boo me. Go on, you’re booing Bernie. You’re booing Bernie,” she said.
As the boos rained down on Boxer, her tone became more acrimonious as she began to reprimand the malcontents.
“Let’s hear it for Hillary Clinton!” needling those who opposed her. “We have the votes, we have the voice, we have victory!”
“I grew up in Brooklyn. I’m not afraid of bullies,” The California senator continued.
“I’m for Hillary Clinton and she’s for all of us,” she yelled. “Keep on booing and boo yourselves out of this election.”
Way to unify the party.
