Bernie Sanders lost at least one vote Saturday as Will Ferrell joined Bill Clinton in supporting Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in Nevada, which holds its caucus Saturday. In a video posted on Clinton's Facebook, the actor and the former president are seen telling voters to "caucus for Hillary" at 11 a.m. local time. Ferrell naturally adds a comical element to the video as he asks for a "quick cup of chocolate custard" mid-rally.
Ferrell's appearance in a video telling voters to "Caucus for Hillary" is surprising since, as Variety notes, Ferrell was among the wave of celebrities to support Sanders in September; the actor's name was still listed on Sanders' celebrity supporters list even after the Clinton video was released. However, at some point Saturday afternoon, Ferrell's name was removed from Sanders' site, Politico reports.
"[Ferrell] worked with President Clinton to get people to caucus in Nevada and is cohosting an event for her," a Clinton campaign spokeswoman clarified to Variety after it was revealed the star had backed both candidates. "He is supporting her."
