After this and a number of instances like this I don't think I can justify voting for Hillary Clinton even to prevent a Trump presidency. The DNC have been outlandishly corrupt in order to ensure their candidate wins, and they aren't going to risk losing causing the youth vote have voted for someone else, like they did Obama. Hillary wants to be president so bad, she'll do it any means necessary.
Without getting into the "outlandishly corrupt" claim, a lot of Democratic leaders have long memories. They recall George McGovern getting trounced in 1972--and Sanders is even further to the left than McGovern was. Sanders is a lot like Trump, come to think of it. Trump didn't identify himself as a Republican until this election cycle, just like Sanders hasn't identified himself as a Democrat until this election cycle. Sanders, like Trump, complains constantly about party rules in every state and in the DNC, many of which have been in place for decades. Why wasn't he trying to change them before now? I think he's every bit as phony as Trump. But if you want to keep your moral and ideological purity and not try to help prevent the absolute catastrophe of a Trump presidency, be my guest. Feel proud of yourself while Trump starts World War III and you're about to get blown to pieces.
