Fareed Zakaria did not hold back on his Fareed's take segment. You can watch and read the transcript here. He started out as follows.
Over the course of this campaign, I have heard from many people who have cheered my opposition to Donald Trump. But there are others who have objected, arguing that I was being biased, that Hillary Clinton had many flaws as well. So let me try to explain, one last time, why Donald Trump is worth special attention.
I am not a highly partisan person. I have views that are left of center, but others that are conservative. I came to this country when Ronald Reagan was president and admired him. I think well of many Republican politicians, including the last two GOP presidential nominees, John McCain and Mitt Romney, both of whom are honorable men who would have been good presidents.
Zakaria then continued to give all the reason why Donald Trump is not only a poor candidate but a dangerous candidate.
Donald Trump is different -- not just because he is obnoxious, tacky and vulgar, or that his business dealings show him to be a scam artist. He is different because of what he believes.
He then itemizes those beliefs and actions that make him anathema to the presidency of the United States of America.
He called him out for his racism: Central Park Five, sued by the Justice Department, boasts of his own bloodline and compares it to breeding racehorses, stance on Japanese internment, Muslims, and more.
He called him out for his anti-law stance: waterboarding, jailing his opponents, threat to investigate Republicans who opposed him. He called him out on his misogyny and objectivation of women.
Zakaria's closing said it all.
These, then, are the core views of Donald Trump, expressed over decades, and confirmed by many of his actions: racism, sexism, protectionism, xenophobia and authoritarianism. His views on taxes and regulations are irrelevant. Your view of Hillary Clinton is irrelevant. Donald Trump is not a normal candidate. He is a cancer on American democracy. And that is why I will vote against him next Tuesday.
I do not believe it could be said any better. I know the prose was about reasons why one must not vote for Trump. However, I think he should have included the very valid reasons to vote for Hillary Clinton as well.
