You brought it on yourself, Secretary Clinton [View all]

I have to chuckle when I see a Clinton post complaining of the damage Senator Sanders is doing to her by not abandoning his campaign weeks ago. And that they are worried that Sanders supporters may not support the Democratic nominee.

Here's a thought: Stop the nonstop ad-hominem attacks on Bernie supporters calling them crazy, violent, "BernieBros", "Bernistas", and having your surrogate say she "fears for her life." Give me a break.

If you stop slapping them in the face and debate the issues you might find they would support Clinton over Trump any day.

And to verify my suspicions, perhaps a poll might help...or set me straight for being so naïve.
