After giving a speech endorsing Hillary Clinton as a Bernie Sanders supporter, comedian Sarah Silverman went off-script at the Democratic National Convention on Monday to tell chanting Sanders diehards in the crowd they were “being ridiculous.”
Then, Silverman and fellow SNL alum Senator Al Franken were instructed to stretch for time. It was ... awkward.
A clearly flustered Franken tried to tell a joke about delayed upcoming performer Paul Simon. Sarah Silverman posed silently while the chants continued. Near the end, CNN broadcast an audience member clearly shouting, “Bullshit!” Seems like the convention is off to a solid start!
