Hillary Clinton Debbie Wasserman Schultz Super Delegates DNC Barack Obama
Hillary Clinton in 2016 was the Wrong Choice.
Almost any other Democratic nominee could have beaten Donald Trump, the only candidate with Unapprovals as high as Hillary's.
There is nothing sexist about calling Hillary a "weak" candidate when there are volumes of empiracle evidence to prove the label.
How weak is she?
In 2008 she lost to a largely unknown junior senator who was black AND had a Muslim name.
In the 2016 primary, she started with a 60-point lead but within six months she was running neck-in-neck with a rumpled, elderly Jewish self-avowed socialist with zero prior name recognition. She would have lost the primary were it not for the rigged corrupt system and voter suppression by the DNC establishment.
In the 2016 election, she spent 1.5 BILLION DOLLARS (dwarfing what her opponent spent) and yet still lost, to an inarticulate deranged orange clown with the attention span of a gnat and no organized political ground game.
Truly, Hillary Clinton may be the weakest, worst presidential candidate in Democratic party history. And its not because of her gender or sexism. Its because of WHO SHE IS and WHAT SHE HAS SAID AND DONE.
The fault is not on voters, not on 3rd parties*, not on sexism, not on the FBI, not on Bernie Bros... The fault is primarily on HILLARY CLINTON, and on the DNC for rigging the system to nominate her.
Some fault is shared by the low-information primary voters who believed what the Establishment Media told them -- that Hillary was a "strong" candidate and the "only one who can beat Trump" (despite solid empiracle evidence to the contrary).
* Rachel Maddow has proposed a delusional theory, that "if all of Jill Stein's voters and half of Gary Johnson's voters had voted for Hillary, she would have won." On what fictitious planet would Gary Johnson's voters have voted for Hillary...?!Exit polls confirm that if not for Gary, they would all have voted for Trump.
Without third-party candidates on the ballot, Hillary would have been beaten by a greater percentage -- in fact, she would not have won the popular vote, were it not for the votes that Johnson ciphoned off from Trump. She would have LOST at least three more states (where her margin of victory was less than the percentage who voted for Gary Johnson in those states).
Newsflash: Rachel Maddow is paid to lie to you. All the Corporate Establishment pundits and talking heads are paid to lie to you. Paid to put forth the propaganda the corporate employers want put forth.
During the primaries, TRMS was a tool of the Clinton Campaign, part of its Dirty Tricks squad, spreading lies and inuendo agianst Bernie Sanders. Some people may find it hard to blame Rachel Maddow for lying, considering she is paid $7 million/year -- that kind of money would undermine the ethical standards of many people, not just Rachel Maddow.
$7 million dollars per year...! That's a heck of a paycheck. So perhaps it is unjustly rude to criticize Rachel Maddow for selling out her ethics and soul.
7 million is an interesting number. It happens to be the number of FEWER people who voted in the 2016 election.
7 million FEWER people voted, because they were so disgusted by the two front-runner candidates and the whole corrupt, disgusting system, including the corrupt media that worked so hard to sell the delusional idea that Hillary Clinton was electable.
Bernie Sanders' supporters were accused and ridiculed for being "unrealistic" pie-in-the-sky fairy-dusters who wanted lollipops and unicorns.
Turns out, the ACTUAL unrealistic pie-in-the-sky fairy-dust lollipop-and-unicorn pipe dream was the belief that Hillary Clinton could beat Donald Trump.
We could have had a great, brilliant president-elect in Bernie Sanders. Instead.... Fasten your seat belts. And start mobilizing for 2018 (take back the house and senate, elect more LOCAL progressives to build the progressive bench) and 2020.
Watch TYT Politics on You Tube, and Aggressive Progressives on the TYT Network, to keep up to date with the REAL political news. Don't bother with Rachel Maddow, Chris Hayes or any of the other professional propagandists on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS etc. They misled you for the past two years, they will continue to mislead you going forward, not just because they are so WRONG, but because they are PAID TO BE WRONG.
