    You misunderstand.
    The problem is that the irrationality & meanness pervades both sides.
    One should not blame one side & ignore the other (thereby justifying it).

    In an election with only 2 possible winners,
    if you oppose one, this gives power to the other.
    Using your language....how do you justify setting
    aside morality to give Hillary that support?

    It does not pervade both sides equally, which is what you and others are so desperately and repeatedly trying to imply, as a way of somehow mitigating it, or worse yet, justifying it. But especially, to avoid having to take ANY responsibility for it.

    I never said or even implied "equally", so you cannot
    deflect from my point with that tired old liberal trick.

    You wondered how people can set aside morality to
    vote for Trump. So I wondered how you can set aside
    morality to support Hillary (the greater of 2 evils).
    Fair is fair.

    I did not have to set aside morality to support Clinton. I don't vote based on how the candidate will effect me, pragmatically, or personally.

    Then this would speak to the immorality of your morality.
    (I don't vote based upon personal effects either.)

    Then why did you even bring it up? The article is not about "both sides". It's about the inexplicable support and defense of ongoing, indefensible behavior by a resident.

    When you don't see the words "equal", "equally", or
    "equivalent" in my posts, you shouldn't blithely infer that.
    I see the cry of "False equivalency!" t for what it is....deflection
    from my point that liberals have a great many of the same faults
    we see in conservatives, eg, sanctimony, dishonesty, tribalism.
    The traits cited in your article apply to your side too.
    Note that you can share traits unequally.
    Who is worse? It depends upon the trait.

    It’s only inexplicable and indefensible because you suffer from TDS.

    We all owe it to ourselves to try to understand those who disagree.
    If one refuses, & only criticizes, then nothing is accomplished.

    Nonsense.

    But even if it were it has nothing to do with the reasons
    people voted for Trump. If you guys want it fight to the
    death, go for it. We can fill in for you.

    It was just a suggestion thst you guys might try to figure
    what your othr half really think, and quit the a priori assunption
    that your counterparts are morally weak or insane.

    In few words, yes.

    Not that your right is not afflicted with LDS

    Let's face it. The left has narcissistic illusions of political grandeur.

    Because they're not "otherwise"?

    Quite right -- when we can talk to one another, rather than at one another, we have some chance of finding common ground.

    It's always so important to remember that we have two ears and one mouth -- and should probably use them in that ratio.
