Hillary Clinton made history last night (June 7) by clinching the number of pledged delegates she needed to become the first woman ever to be nominated as a presidential candidate from a major US party. The victory for her supporters, who vote under the slogan “I’m with Her,” was a sore disappointment for many Bernie Sanders fans.

A vocal contingency among Sanders’ supporters are sticking with the slogan “Bernie or Bust,” vowing to not vote for Clinton in the general election, but many are reluctantly giving in, inspiring this little nugget of internet gold: the hashtag “#GirlIGuessImWithHer” began trending on Clinton’s victorious night.
