Actress Susan Sarandon on Thursday tore into the Democratic National Committee (DNC), calling it "completely corrupt."
“After my experience in the primary, it’s very clear to me the DNC is gone,” she told CNN's Carol Costello.
“Every superdelegate is a lobbyist. The way that the system is set up in terms of trying of having superdelegates — you could win a state and not get the delegates. It’s crazy.”
