His point is that we rarely complain about actually losing and many of us would have been fine with almost any other Republican candidate. The fact that people willfully chose trump is what we have a problem with.
All because he was an "outsider " and not part of the "establishment ". Which still makes absolutely no sense to me as the idea of the establishment Is that the rich and powerful are in control of the government. So you effectively cut the middle man by electing a rich and powerful person as our president?
A true outsider would have been a working class citizen. Much like Bernie was when he was a carpenter before he got into politics because he actually wanted to make the world a better place.

Who is this YOU you refer to? Reality doesn't live on the edges - it lies somewhere in the middle. This is precisely what's wrong with our country. You speak from an extreme as if everyone else is at the opposite edge. You want to make America great again? Then start thinking about what's good for the majority of the people who live in the center, instead of fighting for this mythical extremism that has so divided this country, be it left or right.
The right isn't much better. But at least they're not acting like spoiled children

so the excuse is "well you guys did it"
Yet you admit that you know its bad, and that it does indeed divide........
So instead of taking part, why not rise above and be part of the real solution instead of adding to the problem?
Why not stop this cycle of tit for tat, until our country is utterly destroyed with no hope of redemption?
