‘Devastated’ Bernie Supporters Melt Down on Twitter After He Drops Out: ‘Please Check on Them’

In the wake of Bernie Sanders’ announcement that he has suspended his 2020 presidential campaign, the Vermont senator’s most ardent supporters poured out their emotions on social media.

Sanders, the front-runner in February, acknowledged on Wednesday he no longer had a viable path to the Democratic nomination after a string of nominating contest losses to Joe Biden but promised to work with the former vice president to oust President Donald Trump.

“Then together, standing united, we will go forward to defeat Donald Trump, the most dangerous president in modern American history,” he said in a livestreamed speech to supporters from his hometown of Burlington, Vermont.

The 78-year-old senator, whose progressive agenda pulled the party sharply to the left, had early success in the Democratic race before losing in South Carolina in late February as moderate Democrats united behind Biden.
