147. And, poor, poverty stricken, humble Hillary is the nadir of White Privilege.

“Hillary Clinton, I said be at my wedding, and she came to my wedding,” the reality-star-turned-politician said at the first GOP presidential debate in Cleveland. “She had no choice because I gave to a foundation.”

“I gave to many people before this,” Trump said at the debate today. “When they call, I give. And you know what, when I need something from them two years later, three years later, I call them. They are there for me.”

The Clinton campaign spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri said Trump’s comment “hurts [Sec. Clinton’s] feelings.”

“He invited her. They’re acquaintances. This is long, long established,” she said. “It hurt her feelings, I’m sure, to hear him suggest that he didn’t actually want her there for her company.”

She's voting for Sanders, not Trump. Tierra_y_Libertad Mar 2016 #91
In the primary, sure. In the GE, not voting for the nominee is helping Trump. DanTex Mar 2016 #92
How does that help Trump? Tierra_y_Libertad Mar 2016 #107
It's a zero sum game. There are two options in the general. Hillary's loss is Trump's gain. DanTex Mar 2016 #120
Not on my ballot. Tierra_y_Libertad Mar 2016 #123
Third party candidates are a wasted vote. It's either D or R. Not voting D is helping the R. DanTex Mar 2016 #124
How? Tierra_y_Libertad Mar 2016 #127
Because they can't possibly win. Not voting D is one net vote for the R. Voting R is two. DanTex Mar 2016 #128
You need to retake 2nd grade arithmetic. Tierra_y_Libertad Mar 2016 #139
The math is simple. The effect of a non-vote is one more net R vote than a D vote. DanTex Mar 2016 #140
A non-vote? Tierra_y_Libertad Mar 2016 #142
Net votes are what matters. And you have every right to try to help Trump win. DanTex Mar 2016 #143
Go right ahead. I will continue pointing out how wrong you are. Tierra_y_Libertad Mar 2016 #145

So, demanding that people vote for Hillary is not based on any beliefs? Just a hunch? Tierra_y_Libertad Mar 2016 #160
