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.

Mocking is all he has left.

Is there NOTHING that Don The Sleazeball has done to humiliate women -- even his own wife?!

An old New York Daily News article has surfaced that tells a story of Trump pressuring his future wife, against her will, to pose for Playboy magazine. Trump personally negotiated the fee, according to the report.

The article, tweeted by historian Jeff Nichols, outlines how Trump insisted that Maples do the centerfold and negotiated a million-dollar check to compensate her.

This is the same man who tried to slut-shame Alicia Machado because she posed as a centerfold? Trump is beyond help. A true sleazeball.

None of this is getting through to the Trumpanzees. They truly believe Trump is falling in the polls is because of liberal universities and liberal media that "indoctrinate" our young people.

It has completely escaped their melonheads that a majority of the US states is run by REPUBLICAN governors, Congress, the senate and the house, is REPUBLCAN majority. Up until Scalia dropped dead, the SCOTUS was majority REPUBLICAN. And then there's a majority of talk radio that is spewing REPUBLICAN talking points, 24/7. Wow! Those "liberal" universities really stink with that "indoctrination."

But facts don't penetrate the melonheads who whine, bitch, and blame when one of the worst candidates to ever run for president this country has ever seen is beginning to finally fade. No. It's everyone else's fault, especially "liberal" professors and universities that America is finally seeing that Donald Trump is a crazy adulterous cheat and unworthy to sweep the floors in the White House, never mind live there.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves. It only takes one bad "leak" of damaging Hillary News for this go sideways.

Also, RCP still has Trump pegged at 45%, where he basically resides. It's up to HRC to move her numbers up. Maybe the negative stuff about Gary Johnson will help, because Trumps, barring a complete collapse, seems fairly strong in the mid 40's. Remember, Bill Clinton won with only 43% of the popular vote.

Trump, if he can win Ohio [almost a given now that HRC is pulling out] and Florida or Penn, will still probably capture the Electoral college. Especially if he can keep Nevada in his column. He'll be in Las Vegas Wednesday.

And no, I'm not going!
