No comparison

Ever since the first debate between Hillary and Trump, many have remarked on the “ugliness” of this election season. It sounds so nice and bipartisan to call them both clowns and loftily pronounce yourself to be above the fray, but this is flagrant false equivalence. You don’t have to agree with Hillary on everything to see that, relative to Trump, she’s been a model candidate.

It’s worth noting that throughout history, people have said women can’t be president because they are too emotional, but Hillary has admirably demonstrated how a female candidate can have much greater self-control than her male opponent.

    One can win the popular vote but not get elected. Didn’t we see this with Geo Bush? And that election was rigged by the governor brother in FLA. Maybe this one was, too, in Trump’s favor. Talk of Ku Klux Klan intervention and Russian hackers just ramps up the hysteria. What a tragedy for intelligent Americans and worry just who populates this nation they’d elect an organized criminal casino owner who made every penny from bankruptcies and preying on human greed.
