In Which Both Sides-ism Makes Me Want to Vomit

And here's another hot take of Election 2016 that can eat a sack of tits.

So says Barbara Ehrenreich in The Guardian:
"On the liberal left, tragically, we do not have Bernie Sanders, who would have dispatched Trump’s populist pretensions with a wrist flick. But no, representing the side of tolerance, good government and cosmopolitanism, we have the very epitome of Democratic party elitism, a woman who labeled half of Trump’s supporters 'deplorables', a politician who is so robotic that any efforts to analyze her motives risk the charge of anthropomorphism. Consider her statement on the Standing Rock occupation in North Dakota, which could have been issued by an unmanned typewriter. As soldiers and police bore down on the protesters, she urged all parties – tribal peoples and the pipeline company that threatens their culture and habitat –'to find a path forward that serves the broadest public interest.'
....With either Clinton or Trump, we will be left to choke on our mutual revulsion."
You gotta love the Bernie left.

I mean, sure, Donald Trump might be a racist, authoritarian sexual predator who incites violence against his opponent, but Hillary Clinton just gave a boring, diplomatic statement about DAPL. So, both sides are just as bad, yo!
