Agree Agree Agree. What gets me about both Trump and Sanders is they both want so much to be Obama, but Obama ran on hope and change and the two of them run on grievance.

After SC the Berniebros went on a racist rampage and I had the audacity to go, “um, guys … uh, so don’t know if you know this, but calling people of color ‘monkeys’ is not kosher …” aaaaand now I have another screenshot of someone calling me the c-word. Because nothing says, “join our movement,” like racist and sexist slurs.

I know this is a stupid thing to hope for but I feel like the way Bernie disillusions liberal voters, the only chance we have to defeat Trump is if Bernie leaves the race now. I feel like his divisiveness is as much of a depressant as actual voter suppression efforts.
