Meet Chelsea. Chelsea is feeling the Bern and, subsequently, found herself volunteering for a Bernie Sanders call bank. She made hundreds of calls around the deep south, talking to people about Bernie and their political beliefs. Obviously, this wasn’t smooth sailing for Chelsea — she posted this emotional video on Facebook about it.
First off, I’d be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the incredible personification of stereotype here. The fact that a young, emotional millennial is literally crying on a self-filmed webcam because Trump supporters were mean to her on the phone is almost too perfect to be believed. I almost want to protect myself from being fooled and just call it now that a Trump support group staged this whole thing to galvanize Trump supporters across the country to collectively point and laugh at the weak Bernie supporters. Almost. But there’s just something so genuine, so sweet, so believable about Chelsea.
Anyway, as is tradition, the entertainment doesn’t stop with the content of the video. The commenters are having an absolute FIELD DAY with poor Chelsea.
Laugh out loud funny. Referring to Trump as Emperor, with a capital “E”, is amazing.
Jerome “YaFeelinMeDawg” absolutely LOVES dispelling things, once and for all, and is adamant that one cannot simply stump the Trump.
Don’t even know what’s going on here but I see a classic “entitles millennials” comment and something about lube.
Wildly, wildly disturbing.
Sometimes simple and to the point gets the job done right.
Probably because she interrupted your lunch with a phone call earlier.
Not a fan of the participation trophy movement but incredibly unrelated here. Also not nice to call Chelsea a dumb bitch.
Ohhh the feminists will not like this one.
Buttercup, another tough hit in the sexism debate for the male gender. Damn you Joe.
PS – How about her starting to cry because people called human beings animals? When she dramatically said, “And I just want you to know that the people that are voting for [Trump] are really sick people… that… um … refer to human beings … as ……… animals! (weeps)”, there were over 1,000 words that went through my head before the word animals. It wasn’t even on my radar. Animals!? That’s it? Animals?
Hey, Chelsea, question: Are we not this?
PPS – Hey, Chelsea, what computer you using here, the Apple 2? Maybe mix in some high definition.
PPPS – Upon a second screening I have fallen in love with her line, “…which I don’t even know what constitutes being white anymore.” HAHAHAHAHA. Caucasian, Chelsea. White people are caucasians.
PPPPS – The caucasian in this noun usage sounds like an absolute legend: “… a 50-year-old Caucasian with a full head of graying hair.”
