Conservative Newspapers Bucking Tradition to Endorse Clinton
Conservative columnist for The Wall Street Journal, Dorothy Rabinowitz, explains why she's endorsing Hillary Clinton for POTUS:
"It will be either Mr. Trump or Mrs. Clinton—experienced, forward-looking, indomitably determined and eminently sane," Pulitzer Prize-winner Dorothy Rabinowitz writes in a column headlined "Hillary-Hatred Derangement Syndrome."
"Her election alone is what stands between the American nation and the reign of the most unstable, proudly uninformed, psychologically unfit president ever to enter the White House."
Rabinowitz criticizes those who oppose Clinton, calling them "the NeverHillary forces." She said they know about Trump, but are still willing to vote for him. Rabinowitz wrote, "The NeverHillary forces are another matter entirely—citizens well aware of the darker aspects of Donald Trump's character but who have nonetheless concluded that they should give him their vote.
They are aware of his casual disregard for the truth, his ingrained vindictiveness." She wrote that Trump's supporters might say, "He may be rough around the edges, but he's a fresh face," and "Mr. Trump is the dynamo who will blow up the old order. He's authentic, a man with the courage of his convictions." Rabinowitz countered that Trump has backtracked on several of his plans on immigration and has given "no less than three" different views about abortion.
No one witnessing Trump's primary race—his accumulation of Alt-Right cheerleaders, white supremacists and swastika devotees—could fail to notice the menacing tone and the bitterness that came with it," Rabinowitz wrote.
Trump is being supported by approximately 40% of the American voting public. The candidate for POTUS who has mocked disabled people; and just this past weekend, made fun of Hillary Clinton because she recently became ill with pneumonia. He actually mocked someone for becoming ill!
That's a level of immaturity and imbecility unprecedented in presidential politics. Yet, 40%+ of the American voting public believe this man-child demagogue is qualified to be president. Maybe that's because those 40%+ of the voting public are as immature and vengeful as Trump is.
