Bernie Sanders is quite liberal. Hillary Clinton is somewhat liberal. Donald Trump is a right-wing dumpster fire. Of course Bernie is going to endorse Hillary. The other option is a right-wing dumpster fire gets elected. That's against everything Bernie stands for.

He said from day one that if he didn't win he'd endorse the Democratic candidate and now he's been able to make demands and affect policy. Get off your high horse bro.

I don't think it is really a generational issue, got lots of hate for backing my candidate from all ages and political stripes, that ignored issues and arguments, but went for the usual insults and avoiding an actual dialogue beyond "but, huuuuur, your dumb" insert meme. Americans as a whole just don't seem capable of discussing politics and wresting with issues. Democracy needs the free exchange of ideas, if people are shut off in their "safe zones," it will always be red v. blue, no mater what red/blue stand for.

Polls show that both Trump and Hillary lose roughly the same amount of voters when 3rd party candidates are options so it's hard to argue that Johnson is "supporting" Hillary's run for POTUS. You gotta recognize that the Libertarian party is by far the most liberal believe it or not, liberal actually has a legitimate meaning beyond just an insult to throw at people who frankly aren't anywhere near actual liberalism philosophy in the game. Folks on the right like them because they advocate limited government and free markets. Folks on the left like it because they advocate equal rights and pacifism. Their platform is basically a synthesis of the issues the Right and Left care the most about respectively so it's no surprise that it attracts people from both sides of the aisle.
On top of that, the Green Party is polling close to 5% and I think it's safe to say that almost to would-be Republicans are going Green. They are exclusively pulling from Hillary. If Johnson is only in the election to get Hillary in office, then she's only in to get Trump into office.
That said, although Trump and Hillary both lose roughly the same amount of voters when factoring in other candidates, Trump does lose a greater percentage of his voters. This suggests that Trump is substantially more alienating to his base than Hillary is to hers. This had already been made apparent over the past two weeks, but the polls provide us with some quantitative data as to exactly how repulsive both candidates are. However, this doesn't make any impact on the outcome of the election since, regardless of whether you're looking at the state level or the electoral college, it's determined solely by total votes. It's just an interesting use of statistical analysis.

I understand what you are saying, and your last paragraph enforces what I'm saying to a certain degree. I will agree that Trump is polarizing, and due to his polarizing personality, he will have a strong base of loyal followers. At the same time, he will also have a high percentage of disapproval when compared to past republican candidates. These disenfranchised voters who disapprove of Trump, but have no third option (or a third option that isn't a republican lean) would likely either vote for Trump because he's not Hillary, or choose not to vote. Instead, now Trump loses a much larger percentage of the disenfranchised voter base.
The reason why Gary Johnson steals more votes from Trump is because without Johnson, Trump still gets lots of votes from that group of people (the disenfranchised). Hillary already lost a huge chunk of voters due to the disenfranchised Bernie supporters. I mean these are voters that may have never voted for her in the first place, but the DNC leaks and the collusion against Sanders to keep his campaign down will, and should, frustrate many Bernie supporters and push them farther away from camp Clinton. Some may still vote for her, but many from what I've experienced now have no dog in the fight without him.
Essentially what I'm saying, Hillary already lost her chance with many of the disenfranchised Democrat voters. Trump had no catalyst that caused him to lose a large percentage of disenfranchised Republican voters. Gary Johnson is that catalyst. I'm not saying my logic is 100% correct, but based on my rationale of the situation, Trump has far more to lose with Gary Johnson as the libertarian candidate than he would if say... Bernie Sanders was the libertarian candidate.
Also I know liberal has a legitimate meaning, I don't like to throw it around like some sort of slur because in some respects I'm more liberal (for example, social issues) and in some respects I'm more conservative (for example, economically).
