Bernie Sanders’ full June 7 primary night speech (FULL VIDEO)

Here’s a video of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sander’s June 7 primary night speech, on a night when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reached the magic number to be declared the Democratic Party’s 2016 presumptive Presidential nominee. On Twitter there are various interpretations of this speech: some insist it showed Sanders intends to fight to the bitter end. Others (like me) think it suggests he wants to keep his promise to let all Democrats vote for him who want to in all primaries, but that he’ll be inching towards helping his party defeat Republican presumptive Presidential nominee Donald Trump, who now can safely be described as the most overtly bigoted major party Presidential candidate in American history.

Here’s a full video of Sander’s speech, so you can draw your own conclusions about what his likely “end game” will be. But one thing is certain: the issues he has raised and the movement he built is likely to endure, and with the ongoing generational shifts could eventually take over the Democratic Party (unless his supporters stay home and Trump is elected and they’re blamed by pundits for Trump’s win).
