It would be a huge understatement to say that the Democrat National Convention has been a disaster so far.
Bernie Sanders supporters and elected delegates repeatedly chanted ‘Lock her up’ on the convention floor as speakers talked about party unity.
When former President Bill Clinton tried to humanize his wife with personal stories, the heckling and booing stopped and his address was met with cheers and applause.
That’s mostly attributed to the fact that Bernie supporters staged a huge walk out, as they promised to leave the party after Hillary Clinton’s nomination for president. Democrat party officials also locked Sanders supporters out of the convention.

Georgia delegate Vincent Venditti said outside Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center that he now considers himself a political independent effective immediately.
