I probably missed it, but noticed the many more anti-Trump TYT videos posted since this came out.

But - kudos to TYT for actually looking into the Hillary Wikileak emails.

I know, I know. The Russians! The RUSSIANS!! Trump said he grabs women by the pussy!!!

Your understandable hatred of Trump's loathsome side is blinding you to the massive corruption of the power elite you worship and praise. The wall street wolf in sheep's clothing.

Remember - not voting is a choice as well. Or at least vote Green!

Where do you think Trump falls in the 'power elite' rankings? How much corruption he's personally contributed? AND he's loathsome.

Donald! Donald! DOOOOOOOONNNNNNAAAAAALLLLLLDDDDDD!

He certainly is loathed by the self same political power elites of both parties, so obviously somebody is afraid their gravy train might not stop on schedule....

I am sure Trump drinks at a different trough of corruption, no doubt. But influence peddling in the Washington halls of power is the issue.

True story - just this week a coworker of mine asked me if Trudeau (the Canadian PM) lived up to my expectations now that he's been in power for a year. I asked what he meant. He stated well, I voted for him, so what did I think? I had to inform him he mistook the fact that I criticized the then Conservative PM as approval of the other guy.

I did not approve of the new guy, and it was time for the old party to go.

So - I did not vote for the first time I can recall, and I do not regret it.

The longer a party is in power the more corrupt it becomes.

And Hillary is already corruption personified.

You guys are half a step away from becoming a banana-republic.

A choice I do not envy, temper tantrumy "outsider" circus clown, or the Kleptocrat.

At least be realistic what you are voting FOR.

Bernie Sanders would have been a real choice - maybe economically ruinous, but who knows?

I'm fairly certain he would not hide his ruinous intentions, and he would be absolutely convinced he was doing the right thing for the right reasons.

I love how poor people ring their hands over monies earned by the Clintons, while Trumpster has such a huuugge net worth. As if they (the poor) ever had a shot at having a speck of what either of these candidates are worth.

Yes, unlike anyone in power. Oh, you Libertarians believe that people do things that are always best for their neighbor follow general rules of conduct.

Influence peddling like from 1989 to 2015, Donald Trump has made $1,845,290 worth of political donations. Republicans received $1,150,540, and Democrats received $694,750.

Hillary is in the trough, Trump's been filling it up.

I am proud to have opposed those who describe all who oppose them as "Tender Flowers" and "Special Snowflakes".

If corruption is actually something you care about, and not just an excuse for partisan innuendo, Congress is where legislation starts, and any President faced with a good anti-corruption bill would've have great difficulty vetoing it. So check out who among Congressional candidates is running on a strong anti-corruption platform, and vote for the Presidential candidate who supports them.

In my state of New York, the best contrast is in NY-19, where John Faso (former pro-fracking lobbyist supported by massive donations from the very wealthy) is running against Zephyr Teachout, a professor who literally published a book about corruption.

I'm a liberal Clinton supporter, so I'm obviously choosing an example which makes my candidate look good, but it's the one I've read most about (Teachout impressed me with her primary challenge to Andrew Cuomo). So, go do your own research, see if there's a broader trend. Which candidate supports a higher proportion of Congressional candidates who participate in the revolving-door, big-money politics you suggest concern you, and which candidate goes more for those supported by small donations who aren't former lobbyists for wealthy interests?

Everything I saw in the primaries said Bernie would be wiping the floor with the idiot. I know full well what a shit show Hillary is, but she won't need a basic civics lesson when she gets elected.

Not the point. The Clinton's main source of income appears to be influence peddling. Trump, as a business owner (insert failed, daddy's money etc here), freely used corrupt politicians like the Clintons to further his business. And he freely admits it.

Some still cling to this Clinton propaganda that their foundation is not merely a money laundering pay-to-play scheme. It's all about the children, right?

Your silly straw man argument misses the mark competely. At least just admit you are happily voting for a thoroughly corrupt power elite family as it suits you more than voting for someone you personally feel is repugnant. Don't lie to yourself.
