Stupid. Just one word required: stupid!
Now why would it be anything other than a gender problem, a gender situation? Why would the fact that the Clintons established the Clinton Extraordinary Rendition Program in 1995 [I repeat, 1995, it was continued on and expanded after 9/11 by George W. Bush] be pertinent? Why would the kidnapping of pro-democracy activists, and their being shipped to Libya and Egypt for torture, dismemberment, death, et cetera, be a concern?
Why would the Clintons' absolute relationship [owned by, that is] with the Wall Street banks have any connection?
We continuously hear how // POPULAR \\ one or both Clintons are, but what do the numbers say: 2016 election, HRC v. Trump, lowest voter turnout since the 1996 election which featured Bill Clinton v. Dole - - and in Bill's winning 1992 election he ONLY won 40% of the vote - - the minority of it, while the majority or 60% of the vote was split between George H.W. Bush and Ross Perot!
Sure doesn't seem too popular after all when the data is closely examined?
How many innocents have been tortured and killed by the Clintons and the Bushes?
Now that should be the authors' overriding concern!
[No sane person would vote for a Trump, a Clinton or a Bush!]
