The 45-year-old comedian — who vehemently supported Bernie Sanders until he lost the Democratic primary to Hillary Clinton — decided to empathize with the middle class in a series of tweets Wednesday night. (RELATED: Sarah Silverman Is Not Voting For Hillary)

“For a lot of people, this is the Great Depression, but this time it’s emotional & physical. Our bodies r breaking down w fear & rage,” Silverman tweeted. “& we have to notice that those CORE feelings r what the dwindling middle class #BERNIE begged us to pay attention 2 have been experiencing.”

Silverman — who at the Democratic National Convention said Sanders supporters who refused to support Clinton were “being ridiculous” — said she only spoke at the convention for him.

“I was talking to the people who refused to put an ally of Bernie’s in office. Jane S ASKED me to speak at the DNC. I did it 4 him.”

“Did u let Trump get elected 4 HIM? It’s easy to blame Doll… we’re all scrambling 2 make sense. But ur bending a truth 2 fit ur narrative.” (RELATD: Sarah Silverman: People Who Question Hillary Clinton’s Health Are ‘A**holes’)
