Comedian Sarah Silverman raised some eyebrows Monday night at the Democratic convention when she sought to put some boisterous supporters of Bernie Sanders in their place.  

Appearing at the podium with Sen. Al Franken, the Sanders campaigner had just finished a prime-time call for party unity when a Sanders’ supporters registered their displeasure.  

“To the ‘Bernie or Bust’ people, you are being ridiculous,” she said.  

“Bernie’s already succeeded in so many ways,” she said. “He proved that citizens united is not in fact a necessary evil.”
