At some point, Hillary primary voters and the Democratic party have to accept that they nominated someone who would go on to predictably lose the Rust Belt.

Hounded persistently even before Iowa by recurring allegations of misconduct with a private email server in her home, blame for Bill’s escapades in the 90s, a struggle to relate to ordinary Americans, her ties to Wall Street interests—her opponent, meanwhile, sailing through multiple allegations of sexual assault, a leaked tape revealing him recounting exactly that, opening his campaign by labeling Mexicans “rapists,” all while the RNC flails feebly to try to stop him.

It’s hard to miss the obscene double standard, and yet the Democrats should have seen this coming.
