On the eve of the New York primary, Samantha Bee turned her attention to the Bernie Bro, the “naive kids who believe in wizards and unicorns.”


“I’m not here to bash Bernie, I’m just here to understand your optimism and stick my fingers in it and just roll it around in my hands and restore myself to the person I used to be,” Bee says to her impossibly diverse panel of Bernie supporters.

Ultimately, Bee finds a group of thoroughly optimistic voters who refuse to compromise for a flawed system of government. It is alright, she guesses. “One thing I do know,” she says, “is I respect these people’s unshakeable willingness to dream big.”
