“I AM NOT GIVING UP”-Bernie Sanders(VIDEO)
Bernie Sanders surprised Stephen Colbert Monday, a day before the West Virginia Democratic primary, with a simple message: He is not giving up.
During the cold open of CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Colbert had just gotten his hand stuck in a vending machine — trying to retrieve a 100 Grand candy bar — when Sanders walked in. The Vermont senator helped Colbert with his candy, which he dubbed a “contested confection,” while explaining that his continuing campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, despite the delegate count largely favoring Hillary Clinton, is not a “lost cause.”“I don’t take money from billionaires, but I do check every vending machine change slot,” Sanders said, showing up unannounced.The conversation soon shifted to the West Virginia primary Tuesday, where Colbert pointed out that Sanders faces big odds.
“Even if you do well tomorrow, the delegate math is against you,” Colbert challenged.
“It’s a narrow shot,” Sander admitted. “But we still have a chance to win a majority of the pledged delegates. We’re going to fight for every last vote; and at the end of the day, I hope and believe that we are going to win this.”
Sanders also helped Colbert retrieve his stuck 100 Grand bar, but the comedian was disappointed to find that Sanders hoped Colbert would share his candy. “I knew it!” exclaimed the host, mocking Sanders’ democratic socialist policies.
