I see Trump supporters reluctantly supporting his escalation in Afghanistan, enthusiastically backing his hawkishness toward the DPRK and Iran, failing to criticize his increase in bombs dropped and proportionate increase in civilian casualties, and playing right along with his Saudi Arabia/Yemen evils. Yes, Clinton would definitely have been disastrous for Syria and probably worse overall, with the risk of head-on conflict with Russia making her unelectable, but Trump so far is surpassing Obama’s depraved bloodshed in some ways.

I write about the end of illusions.
