There is the Bernie version and there is the Donald version of how the average guy is getting screwed over

In these two views one is sincere and positive. The other is crap and hateful. One fellow has been consistent his entire life. The other changes his story every five seconds. One really is for the little guy. The other is a notorious shark pretending to be for the little guy.

So why, oh my God why, do some folks see these two as virtually one and the same? Well they both seem to rail against the establishment. But one has never been part of the establishment. The other admits that some of his best pals compose the heart of the oppressive establishment.

And then there is Hillary. She is a little bit like the Donald. But she is a heck of a lot more like a very experienced version of Bernie. Therefore one’s vote should be a no brainer — right?
