The problem is that good people like your friend are bamboozled by the complexity of the problem. All they see is that others at the top were helped and those like themselves were not, so she ends up voting for the very type of big money con artist that caused the problem in the first place.

When Obama came on the scene he faced impossible choices. The economy was on the brink whereby the entire nation was about to go down the drain if he didn’t bail out the arsonists that started the fire — the big banks. There was just no way to save the little guy no matter what he did. If he let the banks sink ATMs and every other means of money movement would have instantly frozen. Everyone would have lost out in every way for many years to come, especially the little guy.

The understandable problem for your friend is that Hillary found a way to make money despite the downturn because of her connections. But it remains that Hillary was not part of the crooks that caused the fiasco and Trump was and still is.
