Being the less horrible of two abhorrent options doesn't stop him from being an abhorrent option on his own and really, the only thing he has going for him is that Clintion is even worse. I don't know what's so hard to wrap your mind around that.

Put it this way: what good can you say about Trump?

The question is difficult to answer because there's very few issues where he concretely anchors himself, and about the only issue he's been consistent about is creating an anti-immigration policy that appeals to a xenophobic right more than anyone else. And while people might applause him for saying no to "political correctness," the issues Trump belabors on tend to be wedge issues. Immigration, again, being the prime example. Almost all academic research I've seen on immigration has suggested there's no economic disadvantage to immigration, at least one with appreciable effect size (see, for example, Longhi et al. 2010). Rather, understanding immigration must necessarily involve the fact that most people feel insecure about their own economic position (which is fair: I do too); however, the group that loves Trump would rather deport large number of families, including some whose only memories are of here (e.g. undocumented children who brought over the border just after being born) before trying any other alternative. And given Trump's inconsistency and lack of clarity on other issues, it's all the more concerning when Trump probably doesn't even have an alternative when his--if current research is to be believed--fails. Trump isn't so much embody what politicians fear to say--as many of his "he doesn't give into political correctness" aspects people want to believe--inasmuch as he embodies what a particular sect of white Americans want to be true.


I totally agree with this. Considering America is a nation that's built on immigration, it's absurd that some people are anti-immigration, and DT wants to build a wall for the Mexican border, I find that preposterous. This isn't 206 BC, and he's not the Emperor of any land.

Trump is such a big egomaniac, much more so than a president is supposed to have.

Both Hillary and Trump are fucking terrible, but why do people hate Trump, well let's see.

1. He's racist and anti-civil rights in general.
2. Thinks he had it hard because he only got a small loan of a million dollars (More money then I'll probably ever see in my lifetime).
3. His policies are actually crazy, especially his Foreign Policy beliefs.
4. Plagiarizing is legit bruh.
5. He so far up his own ass that he can't see how much of a dumbass he is.

In other news, people saying that he's the least worse of the two, that may be true but there's not only 2 candidates because there's not only 2 parties. If you vote for EITHER of the 2 main parties then you have no right EVER to complain about the outcome or about the state of our country.
