Yes, I can imagine a headline like “hookers pissing on…” sells more copies and generates more clicks and thus people are focusing on that.
And I’m really not a fan of Trump. But I can reassure people like generic_name that “I’m NOT with you guys!” if “you guys” means people focusing mostly on the part with the hookers.
But believe it or not, I really am a fan of Bernie Sanders, actually. Mostly because I was deeply impressed how he rejected to be a part of the old “Lets throw dirt and see what sticks” game that seems to be mandatory when it comes to elections.
I also understand that I’m in a somewhat privileged position, being a native german citizen living in Germany and thus being kinda “out of the way”, it’s propably easier to keep calm.
And - lastly - for the real scandal here, IF it’s true - the role of the russians, or at least the suspected role of the russians: “The russians did it” is the new “Dog ate my homework”. I understand people would prefer to be the victim of sinister powers instead of their own fuck-ups, but I honestly think that you’re now stuck with Trump not because the evil reds did it, but because the DNC wanted to force Hillary down everyones throat.
Also, I wouldn’t believe the CIA/FBI/NSA anything, anymore right away, even if it was that water is wet, the night dark and their feet smelly.
