Caitlin writes, "Trump's actions in Yemen alone make him a monster whose name should only be spoken with disgust. If you abhor Obama for his warmongering there's no legitimate reason not to abhor Trump as well." All true, Caitlin, but would it break your hand to write that the genocide in Yemen started during the Obama administration, and Obama was just as much if not more of a monster than Trump?

You mention several potential Republican Presidential candidate against whom the Democratic candidate would be the lesser evil. When will you get it through your head that there is no such thing as the "lesser of evils?" Arthur Silber wrote about this in 2012 in "Once Upon a Time" (http://powerofnarrative.blogspot.com/search?q=park) There is no comparison between two individuals who have both crossed the line into absolute evil. Neither can be "greater" or "lesser."

Even if there were such a thing as the "lesser of evils," back in January 1967 Hal Draper explained why "lesser evilism" was self-destructive: https://www.marxists.org/archive/draper/1967/01/lesser.htm
