    Boos, blowback and a American flag falling during a live interview have plagued the Democratic National Committee's national "unity tour" featuring Sen Bernie Sanders and DNC chairman Tom Perez, NBC News reported.

    Reviews were mostly negative for the effort to put the Democratic party's new leader in front of Sanders' most loyal supporters in key spots around the country, like Miami and Las Vegas, where the tour ended Saturday.

    Sanders is the most popular politician in the country, and he and Perez both want his supporters to work with the party, but what unity was on display was dubbed "strange behavior" by the Washington Post.

    "We must conclude that the current model, the current process by which the Democratic Party does business, is a failed process," Sanders said minutes after Perez left the stage in Mesa. "That is why I am here tonight. Enough is enough."
