    *HOW IS TRUMP A RACIST?*

    *HILLARY TAKES MONEY FROM MIDDLE-EASTERN KINGS THAT KILL PEOPLE WHO ARE
    APART OF THE LGBT COMMUNITY*

    it’s not about Hillary changing her mind about gay marriage too late, it’s
    about her lying. She is telling us that she always was for it, what is
    clearly a lie, that’s why it just seems to me, as she would do anything for
    votes. Sure anyone would do much fot votes, but with Hillary you just don’t
    know what the result will be. I hope I made my point clear, sorry, coming
    from germany

    exactly Bernie supporters doesn’t matter when she changed her mind, as long
    as she did, p.s Bernie opposed gay marriage on he grounds that it’s a state
    issue in 2006.

    I don’t like Hillary and I find it annoying how she has flip flopped on
    issues involving LGBT rights. Compared to someone like Sanders who has
    always been for it, Hillary is worse. However, when compared to many
    Republicans who are still against it, she is by far the better candidate.

    It’s ironic how americans mocked Hugo Chavez for being a dumbass populist
    clown and now they’re going to put their american version as president.

    Pity those who press the dislike button. They live in hate, anger, and the
    fear of facts, math, science, truth, and sex. Talk about a boring life.

    The amount of bullshit and political correctness is just radiating off my
    screen right now. Not saying Trump is a good candidate but Hillary is a
    piece of shit.

    wondering why is whether the candidates support/does not support lgbt the
    *only* ground in deciding whether to trust/not trust them?

    Is Hilary a great candidate? No, she’s not, she has numerous large
    problems… is she better than Trump? FUCK YES! At the very least we can
    kind of predict what she’ll do and plan accordingly, Trump could get bored
    one day and declare war with China just for funsies.

    I can’t believe how incredibly stupid some of these comments are. I don’t
    like Clinton, and pretty much none of her supporters are emotionally
    invested in her, since she’s a lying, flip-flopping model politician.

    But despite that, it’s impossible to deny Clinton’s credentials. She was
    Secretary of State, Senator, and First Lady (Which is actually more work
    than many think it is).

    To choose Donald Trump over Hillary as president is like choosing a bitchy,
    whiny annoying 4-year old hell bent on killing your baby to babysit over a
    teenager who’s an asshole.

    Bernie Sanders supporters are so narrow minded that they don’t realize that
    Bernie’s policies are almost half as bad as Donald Trump’s.

    HE WANTS TO TAX THE POOR EVEN MORE.

    All to fund his incredibly stupid tax plan that he copied from a European
    country literally sitting on a mountain of cash. (Sweden)

    THEY CAN AFFORD HEALTHCARE LIKE THAT BECAUSE THEY HAVE MONEY.

    Don’t say that Hillary will do the same thing, since she’s a lying,
    flip-flopping, model politician who won’t follow up on anything she says.
    That’s a fact.

    Or you could ask Hillary Clinton why it took her so long to get on the
    right side of gay rights issues. Because that answer will give you insight
    as to whether she is solely politically motivated or if she really is
    disgusted by discrimination against those in the gay community. If she
    wasn’t disgusted then why did why didn’t she go it alone and show some
    leadership on that issue?

    I mean, what he says is true. The real problem is, how can we know that she
    actually changed her mind and isn’t just saying things for the election?
    Meanwhile, we all know Trump is too dumb to bother filtering his thoughts,
    so we all know exactly what his priorities are.

    Savage is right. We can’t say that someone is wrong because they changed
    their opinion to the ‘right’ side. Don’t we all change our mind on things
    if more relevant evidence comes to light?

    hillary changes her mind so often that she could just change her mind
    again. Just sayin’. Bernie Sanders is the trustworthy candidate on these
    issues. Why aren’t we promoting him? Just seems absurd to me.

    lol how typical, Bernie is actually the man who advocated equal marriage
    long before the former open and still closeted conservative Hilary and yet
    he supports her.

    We have for a long time pointed out that mainstream media is bunch of
    retards paid to say things. An above average dude like Trump sees right
    through it, Megan Kelly supposed to be intellectual? Pleeeeaaasee… give
    Trump a break! They cant handle him, because the truth is, media has been
    stupid from day ONE. Trump is surfing on these fools. And now media is
    resorting to ancient minded tricks, like repeting the word racist and so
    on. My neighbour’s dog would have done a beter job!

    I Trust the world won’t let Trump get away with much bullshit. Clinton
    however can shut down opponents with “Obama Boys are Sexists” and “Bernie
    Bros Are Sexists”.. Trump has a higher chance of attempting bullshit,
    Clinton has a higher chance of getting away with it.
