Sanders booed by House Democrats
Sen. Bernie Sanders is still talking like a guy who’s running for president. But frustrated House Democrats — who booed him at one point during a morning meeting — say it’s time to stop.
With the Democratic convention just weeks away, Sanders still hasn’t endorsed one-time rival Hillary Clinton and dodged questions about when he would during a tense meeting Wednesday morning with House Democrats.
Sanders also stunned some of the Democrats in attendance when he told them that winning elections isn’t the only thing they should focus on. While they wanted to hear about how to beat Donald Trump — and how Sanders might help them win the House back — he was talking about remaking the country.
“The goal isn’t to win elections, the goal is to transform America,” Sanders said at one point, according to multiple lawmakers and aides in the room.
Some Democrats booed Sanders for that line, which plays better on the campaign trail than in front of a roomful of elected officials.

Can you imagine, a room full of "educated" grown men and women, arguably some of the most powerful people in our country, "booing" one of their peers in the nation's capitol?
Obviously, this type of behavior is not just limited to the Left.
These are supposed to be our "leaders".
If this is the behavior from Congressmen and Senators what can we possibly expect from the average American?

Personally, I hope the old boy keeps giving the Crooked Hillary and her insider 'Demstablishment' thugs heartbern.

Sanders is an honest socialist. He openly states he wants your money.
I've boo'd him quite often.

The big question now is what would the Democrat primaries look like if voters knew what they know about the proven Hillary lies ?
Sanders could have taken the delegates I think.

He was booed because, modern Democrats represent the corporations and their lobbyist money. Sanders did not endorse hilley and he is calling for a change where the people would be represented, rather than ripped off, of course they booed him.
