What do you think was more awkward — Bernie hugging Hillary after endorsing her or Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley’s kiss at the VMAs?
Bernie Sanders conceded the Democratic race today and endorsed Hillary Clinton at a rally in New Hampshire.
‘Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nomination,’ Sanders told a cheering audience in Portsmouth. ‘And I intend to do everything I can to make sure she will be the next president.’
Sanders recapped his campaign, highlighting the 22 states and nearly 1,900 delegates he won over the six-month primary. Unfortunately, he said, it was ‘not enough to win.’
‘Hillary Clinton will make an outstanding president, and I am proud to stand with her today,’ the U.S. senator said after promising to campaign in every corner of the country to keep Donald Trump from winning the November election.
He did not suspend his own presidential campaign today, even as he gave his support to Clinton, who a month ago clinched enough pledged and superdelegates to beat him in a face-off at the party’s national convention.

As Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders finally endorses his longtime Democratic rival Hillary Clinton today in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, the Republican National Committee is having some fun with his greatest political hits.
The RNC released a top fifteen list of attacks Sanders made on Clinton throughout the protracted Democratic primary, including that she was ‘not qualified’ to be president of the United States.

First on the list is a dig Sanders made to ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos about Clinton after losing the California primary to her, which had been the Vermont senator’s last best hope to grab away the nomination.
‘I don’t think Hillary Clinton can lead a political revolution,’ Sanders said on This Week, though said he thought she was ‘smart.’
Secondly, the RNC reminded voters that, in early April, Sanders had said his opponent was ‘not qualified’ to be president of the United States.
‘I don’t believe that she is qualified if she is, through her super PAC, taking tens of millions of dollars in special interest funds,’ Sanders said.
