Bernie Sanders finally gave up the ghost of his campaign and endorsed Hillary Clinton for president at a rally in New Hampshire Tuesday. During his remarks, Sanders proclaimed that Clinton “must become our next president”:
“Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nominating process, and I congratulate her for that. She will be the Democratic nominee for president and I intend to do everything I can to make certain she will be the next president of the United States,” Sanders said at Portsmouth High School while standing next to Clinton.
“I have come here to make it as clear as possible as to why I am endorsing Hillary Clinton and why she must become our next president,” he added.
But Sanders didn’t agree to put the stamp of approval on Clinton’s campaign without a few concessions. Clinton agreed to lurch even further to the left on higher education and healthcare in order to get Sanders’ endorsement. Here’s hoping she lied to him just like she did the American people.
