"He's questioned the trade agreements. He's done some challenging of Wall Street – I don't know how authentic that is. He said he's against the carried interest racket, for hedge funds. He's funded himself and therefore attacked special interest money, which is very important," Nader says. "But he's lowered the level of political debate to unheard-of depths of salacious, slanderous and vacuousness, garnished with massive self-boosterism and repetition."
"And that's not good, because that brought a lot of money into the media and that's the kind of debates they're going to want to goad."
When asked what positive contributions Clinton has made to the 2016 campaign, Nader called her a "corporatist, militarist Democrat" who would have been defeated by Sanders if every state held an open primary.
"She's going to win by dictatorship. Twenty-five percent of superdelegates are cronies, mostly. They weren't elected. They were there in order to stop somebody like Bernie Sanders, who would win by the vote," he says.
Ralph Nader: Trump’s Done Some Good, Clinton’s Winning By ‘Dictatorship’
The former Ohio political director for the Democratic National Committee in 2000, Edward Joseph, blames Nader for the Iraq War, the financial crisis, and “other disastrous consequences of the Bush presidency.”
Following this logic, Nader isn’t just responsible for the Iraq War and the economic collapse. He is also responsible for the September 11th attacks. Gore obviously would not have missed the threat Osama bin Laden posed to the U.S. Also, Gore would have never botched the response to Hurricane Katrina so Nader is responsible for that too. However, if Nader brought us Bush and Bush brought us President Barack Obama, then Nader is responsible for helping Americans elect the first black president.
