On the one hand Trump supporters tell us they enjoy that he "tells it like it is." On the other Hillary calls out a large number of his supporters (and let's face it 50% is probably too low, not too high) for being a "basket of deplorables" and all of a sudden Trump supporters have their panties in a bunch. Let's first cast aside the ludicrous suggestion that calling homophobes, sexists, racists, and other assorted bigots deplorable (which is kind in the grand scheme of things) is equivalent to even half the truly nasty BS Trump has spouted over the last 15 months. Just the suggestion that the majority of illegal immigrants from Mexico are rapists or murderers is infinitely worse than calling bigots deplorable. Listen, if you all want people to tell the unvarnished truth, then stop being butt hurt about Clinton's remarks. Or is it, as the rest of us have long known, that your hatred of political correctness and love for telling it like it is, is just code for being upset that it's no longer socially acceptable to be a bigot in polite company? Because if we're being honest, had Trump made the same accusation about 50% of a minority group, his supporters would be first in line to tell that group they're being "too sensitive" and "overreacting."
Exactly. If I had $100 for every Ralph Nadar voter, who was cock-sure in their righteous indignation towards Al Gore, who came to bitterly regret electing Bush because of it, I'd be rich. Say what you will about Al Gore, he'd have never invaded the wrong country, of Iraq.
The third party 'tards that pushed this narrative hid like roaches from light about their real vote, while W was in office. The same will go for this election. Make no mistake, Trump will cause a Constitutional crisis within the first 90 or 120 days of his Presidency. I will hound, pound, and verbally mock the very Gary Johnson ("What is Aleppo".) / Jill Stein (anti-vaxer) jerks that felt Hillary was just as bad as Trump.
Not me. I've never hidden the fact that I voted for Nader in 2000 and never will. OK fine I lived in a non-swing state, but I don't regret the vote I cast that day and no amount of guilt tripping from the Democratic party has changed my mind. The Bernie movement shows the Dems still haven't gotten it. Al Gore got what he deserved because he sucked as a candidate. If you're running against someone as dumb as GWB and can't walk away with the election, you deserve to lose.
