PHILADELPHIA — The day after Sen. Bernie Sanders called for unity in the Democratic party, some of his supporters got into a shouting match with presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton's supporters at a Texas delegation breakfast at the Democratic National Convention.

A Sanders supporter reportedly took the stage and said that they "condemn" the nominee.

"Hillary, Hillary," Clinton's supporters yelled in response, at which point the room devolved into chaos.

The back-and-forth at the Texas delegation breakfast mirrored the events in the Wells Fargo Arena yesterday on the DNC's opening night, as Sanders supporters repeatedly booed references to Clinton.

The Democratic Party has been struggling to show unity so far during the convention, as Sanders supporters have loudly objected to Clinton as the nominee, especially after a high-profile leak of Democratic National Committee emails that seemed to show favoritism to Clinton.

Last night, comedian Sarah Silverman told Bernie-or-bust delegates in the convention hall that they were "being ridiculous."
