“Oh, so that’s what I looked like when a boyfriend dragged me to an Uncle Kracker concert in 2003” is what I thought while watching Susan Sarandon’s face go on a journey from “fuck this” to “no, really fuck this” to “no, no, really fuck. this.” in a matter of seconds while sitting in the audience at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia last night.
The Bernie or Bust disciples must’ve spent all day yesterday saying “rubber baby buggy bumpers” and gargling with warm water and honey, because they knew that they would be working the hell out of their vocal cords while chanting and booing tricks not named Bernie Sanders at the DNC. It felt like the Bernie or Bust people were doing their own drinking game, but instead of guzzling down a shot of the sweet nectar every time a speaker spit out Hillary Clinton’s name, they booed a bitch instead. It seems like the only time they put their boos on mute was during Michelle Obama’s perfect speech, which if you missed, you’ll get to hear next week when Melania Trump does a revival of it at a rally
Even Bernie supporter Sarah Silverman checked their boos:
Since Susan Sarandon is pretty much the Queen of the Bernie Bros and is a BoB-er, she was right there with them. Susan is stage 10 pro-Bernie and has made it clear that she’d rather get double fisted by a hawk who likes to give it rough than cast a vote for Hillary Clinton in November. I don’t know if Susan booed last night, but the camera did catch her throwing a SMH + side-eye combo over one speaker declaring that Hillary Clinton will be POTUS. Now Susan knows how I felt while watching Tammy.

Susan co-signed that tweet and responded by saying, “Accurate.”
As for why Susan even went and didn’t just stay her ass at home, she probably wanted to continue to support and defend Bernie against those DNC leaks and also wanted to partake in a sport called hate-watching. Susan’s Twitter war rival Debra Messing was also at the DNC last night. So I’m surprised that we were even able to hear the boos from the BoB-ers, because I would think that the sound of Debra cackling the ginge off of her hair while seeing Susan have a shitty time would’ve drowned them out.
Buzzfeed also put together a gallery of pictures of Bernie supporters releasing all of their emotions last night:
