Bernie Sanders is seriously thanking Rahm Emanuel for endorsing Hillary Clinton

Bernie Sanders didn't win an endorsement from Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and he's thrilled about it. In fact, the Democratic presidential hopeful went so far as to thank him for backing his rival, Hillary Clinton:

Sanders, who has been campaigning in Illinois ahead of Tuesday's primary, also called out Emanuel in a news conference Saturday.
