"They are willing to stand aside and allow something truly horrible just so they can avoid doing something unpleasant."
Well, when you frame it that way.
But you don't.
You just get to make your best impression of the main stream media, and become mostly irrelevant.
the last sane man
The argument against Trump is that he's an uncouth loudmouth. What farking country did these people grow up in?
This smacks of High School politics.
As Trump gets more and more blowback from the ruling elite, I want him to win even more. I want him to make ever bigger gaffs, just to savor the way that tastes.
When the hell did Mussolini become a good guy who can be used in an argument against Hitler?
Most of us never Trump people harp on Clintons faults all the time, THAT DOES NOT MAKE TRUMP A VIABLE OPTION. He is also a horrible old liberal/progressive, ie , worthless. He says whatever he has to to keep you with him, just like Hillary says whatever she has to to keep hers. He has to have you when Trump tv starts.
Which is what this whole campaign was about. You've been duped. No one runs a campaign like this if he gives two shits about winning it. No ground game, hardly any campaign offices and where is all that money of his own he was going to spend? If I thought he actually wanted to win, I might vote for him but he doesn't, again you've been duped.
But that happens, people get duped, I've been duped, do not reward him by paying to watch Trump TV.
