Regardless of the final outcome of tonight’s election, Bernie Sanders supporters are shaming the DNC for the current political situation.
As of midnight Eastern time, Donald Trump is leading Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race and has won several important battleground states that may bring him to victory.
Sanders supporters say the DNC has played a huge part in Donald Trump’s success. With comments like “enjoy the destruction” and “stop running establishment candidates,” as well as telling the DNC to “take responsibility,” supporters took to Twitter to share their outrage:
The lesson from tonight’s Dem losses: Time for Democrats to start listening to the voters. Stop running the same establishment candidates.

Many Dems losing the House & Senate this election & all I can think is if Bernie was on the top of the ticket that wouldn’t be happening..

Dems had a candidate that could’ve destroyed Trump, but the DNC just had to fuck things up. Congrats establishment. Enjoy the destruction.

Emails and documents leaked by both hacker Guccifer 2.0 and WikiLeaks showed proof that the DNC and the Clinton campaign worked with each other—and with the media—to take down Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primary race.
Although he ended up endorsing Clinton, Sanders’ loss led to a huge divide among Democrats. Clinton’s favorability rating remained low, with 51 to 57 percent of voters having a negative opinion of her.
