Great moments in schadenfreude:

No, we don’t really believe Tim Robbins had anything to do with Hillary Clinton gobbling up four (!) of Guam’s seven delegates in Democratic caucuses there Saturday. Still, it’s amusing to think that the actor and Bernie Sanders super-fan turned off quite a few potential Berners with his dismissal of Clinton’s utterly crushing 74‑26 landslide in South Carolina as the equivalent of “winning Guam.”

Crazy Tim Robbins was right in one way when he compared Guam & South Carolina – both went for Hillary in landslides! #GuamPrimary

That’s gotta burn.
Robbins quickly apologized, saying he meant no disrespect to the voters of South Carolina and Guam, faulting ABC News for taking his remarks out of context. Sanders himself helped dig the whole deeper when he admitted to getting “murdered” in the Deep South, which he conceded was obviously going to vote for Clinton regardless.
Robbins won’t care, then, that Clinton destroyed Sanders in Guam Saturday by an almost 60‑40 margin or, more precisely, 777 votes to 528.
Just in: @HillaryClinton wins Guam, the lone contest on the calendar today.

Hillary Clinton has won the Guam Democratic caucuses 59.54% to 40.45%, per @robyoon.

Robbins couldn’t vote in Guam, but the following ballot is open to the general public until Sunday.
On a scale of 9 to 10 how much rigging and cheating did Hillary do to win the #GuamPrimary today?

Congratulations Guam, you're officially part of "the South" now… #GuamPrimary

There is, of course, a down side worth noting: Hillary Clinton won Guam.
