This Crowd of Hillary Supporters Looks Burnt Out

Ready for Hillary... or Bernie... or just a nap.

At a Hillary Clinton rally in Orlando, Florida today, the crowd looked severely unenthused even after numerous attempts by volunteers to pump them up. Compared to Sanders, Trump and even a few recent Rubio rallies, this reaction was dismal to say the least.

Former President Bill Clinton was also in attendance. “This has been a crazy election, hasn’t it?” Bill Clinton said. “On the other side, I can’t keep up with what’s going on. It’s like a sixth-grade food fight half the time.” 

The craziest part for Hillary is that some experts are now saying she could lose the nomination, a second time around. You certainly wouldn't think this was a rally for a frontrunner in a state where she's slated to win tonight. While Bill Clinton urged members of the crowd to build a future with Hillary, some members of the audience were clearly envisioning a future with a different candidate. One guy even wore a Bernie shirt. Please clap.
