Bernie Sanders has quite a task to convince his followers to throw their support behind Hillary Clinton. But Trevor Noah said he admired how the Vermont senator attempted to calm his supporters on the first night of the Democratic National Convention.
On Tuesday’s episode of “The Daily Show,” Noah showed Sanders getting booed by his own backers as he tried to convince them that a vote against Clinton was a vote for Donald Trump.
“You’ve got to love Bernie Sanders,” Noah said. “He spent the last year teaching people to dream the impossible dream ― universal health care, trillions in infrastructure, free college, all paid for with historic tax hikes ― and now, in a room full of the people who love those ideas, he’s coming out like a disillusioned Peter Pan.”
Noah then did his best Sanders impression: “Clap all you want. Tinker Bell is not coming back. This is real life!”
Noah said he was surprised by the way Sanders supporters were acting.
“[They’re like,] ‘We love you, Bernie! We’ll follow you anywhere!’” Noah said. “[And then when he says] ‘I think we should vote for Hillary,’ [They’re like] ‘Fuck you, old man!’”
