I cannot wait for this election to be over.
I'm sick of people who call themselves "progressives" but continually attack Hillary Clinton using right-wing Republican talking points, blaming her, of all people, for her husband's cheating on her, and pretending that if she became president she would be just as bad as Trump. What a load of BS. How is this "progressive"? They babble about "neoliberalism" and are angry at her for being pro-Israel.
Don't any of them remember the 2000 election, and how a bunch of misguided progressives voted for Ralph Nader, thus aiding Bush in being elected president? (They weren't entirely to blame, but they certainly didn't help). They thought that Al Gore just wasn't pure enough for them. And they're doing the same thing to Hillary, but this time with a generous dollop of sexism.
Donald Trump is a misogynist (as we were reminded today), a man who grabs women "in the pussy," a vicious racist (just today he asserted again that the five young black men who were acquitted of raping a woman in Central Park in 1989 were guilty), an antisemite (despite the fact that his son-in-law is Jewish and his daughter converted to Judaism), a hater of Mexicans (remember his remark about Mexican "rapists" and his attacks on the judge who is handling one of the cases against him).
Why on earth would "progressives" tear down Hillary Clinton if it means making it easier for Trump to be elected?
