“I’m not against Hillary,” explains Sarah Silverman in a recently released video. “I’ve just met someone I have more in common with.” The comedian goes on to say that she'd accepted Clinton's inconsistent record as an inevitable part of politics until Bernie Sanders came along and proved leaders could be beholden to the people, not lobbies or Wall Street. Silverman adds that she's unsure why, given Sanders' record, many insist on saying he would be an ineffective leader.
