Nick Merrill, Hillary Clinton’s traveling press secretary — as if she needed one other than to help corral pesky reporters with ropes — is fired up about tomorrow’s primaries. How fired up? He’s literally jumping up and down with excitement. So close!
It’s too bad, then, that the AP ruined the moment by announcing that, by its count, Clinton has already clinched the nomination.
So, might as well call the whole thing off. Nick, you can get down now. It’s over.

Seriously, get down from there before you embarrass yourself even further.

None of that answers Merrill’s question, though. Who’s excited for Tuesday’s big primary in California?
The @AP declared Clinton the winner of the Dem primary before CA votes tomorrow. I'm sure this will go over well with Bernie supporters.

Wonder if tonight's AP/other media projections will suppress Hillary's turnout tomorrow, boost Bernie's — they'll vote with middle fingers.

Well, the internal polls must clearly be in Bernie's favor. #California let's do this tomorrow!!

@xomariahmonique I hope people still go and vote tomorrow. Its just a primary, so there's no harm in voting for Bernie if Hillary "won" ?

The fake declaration of a Clinton victory today will bring more support for Sanders tomorrow. If Bernie wins, media won't do this again!

Lame attempt to depress Bernie Sanders votes tomorrow. May actually hurt her if she loses tomorrow. https://t.co/h1K7JugPKN

Hey CA Clintonites – she's clinched you get to sleep in tomorrow… our votes are no longer needed. If you support Bernie please disregard.
