Cenk Uygur, a combative progressive YouTube personality, was visibly angered by the lackluster performance of his favored presidential candidate, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), in the Super Tuesday primary elections.
His co-hosts also appeared stunned when the disastrous poll results rolled in for his campaign for a California seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
In a video posted on Twitter from the progressive YouTube show "The Young Turks," Uygur can be seen tearing up before leaving the show altogether.
Uygur earlier in the show accused Joe Biden of suffering from senility and claimed the only reason he was beating Sanders was because the media was unfair to the democratic socialist Sanders.
Sanders was looking to defend his front-runner status in the Super Tuesday primary elections, but Joe Biden routed him in many states and set himself up for a probable victory for the Democratic nomination.
Uygur's co-hosts continued on to report that early numbers from his campaign for a California congressional seat showed he was garnering less than 5% support, in fourth place behind two Republicans and one other Democrat.
Uygur was also openly hostile to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the Democratic establishment, which he accused of taking legal bribes from corporations.
