He resembles a double agent dreamed up by liberal screenwriters & embodies almost every left-wing caricature of Republicans that they despise. He is a racist & a sexist, retweeted neo-Nazis, besmirched Muslims & Latinos and boastfully molested women. The GOP has often been frustrated by liberal sensitivity on race and gender. Now, comes Trump, spewing bigotry -- an unrepentant liar & denier of reality, who almost every day makes immediately disprovable claims."  "My grandparents viewed it as a betrayal to take lightly a man unfit for the Oval Office.

I don’t take lightly how hard it is for you to consider a vote for Hillary Clinton.  But you can’t  stay home , because that’s saying you don’t care who wins."
