Ralph Nader: Trump’s Done Some Good, Clinton’s Winning By ‘Dictatorship’

He heaps praise on Bernie Sanders, but won’t reveal how he'll vote in November.

By David Catanese | Senior Politics Writer May 13, 2016, at 1:00 p.m.

Ralph Nader, the former Green Party presidential candidate and lifelong consumer activist, says Donald Trump's dizzying presidential candidacy hasn't been all bad, while Hillary Clinton is winning the Democratic nomination by "dictatorship."

And though he has heaps of praise for Bernie Sanders, Nader still won't say whom he voted for in the 2016 primary or which candidate he plans to cast a ballot for come November. He'd actually prefer there was an option for "none of the above."

But in an interview with U.S. News, Nader expressed more positive thoughts about Trump's candidacy than Clinton's.

"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.

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.

Say what you will about Ralph, he appears to have no love lost for the Clintons.

Clintons are murderers and DC knows it. There is a reason they backed Obama over her and wanted Biden to run.

Ralph:

If Bernie doesn't get the nomination you need to run for President. You can win. Just do it. And don't worry. You will only take votes from Republicans who already support Bernie. Even if you lose that will help Hillary win. It will be you or Hillary. Go for it.

Yep. This also tells me that the Bernie supporters that see the world similar to Nader (thinking a substantial percentage) view Trump as their second choice.

This could be a massive win for Trump.

With Obama and Biden making noises as a response to FBI Director Comey’s press conference (my opinion), Hillary can’t be feeling too good right now.

I don’t know how many Bernie supporters will actually end up voting for Trump (leftists don’t tend to be as god-awful stupid as certain conservatives on the subject of realpolitik during election time), but I hope enough to make a difference. A difference that will add to the other differences and accumulate into a landslide.

I actually once drove one of those Corvair Monzas which Nader’s book was about and which used to try to tuck a front wheel in under itself and roll when taking any sort of a sweeping turn going even the tiniest bit downhill. That was the most dangerous piece of **** I’ve ever driven in my life.

Hilariously, Trump could name Nader as his VP pick -- I despise the Jew-hating Egyptian nasty-mouthed lawyer, but he has a weird, wild, all over the map following who only vote when Nader or some other wackadoodle third party candidate gets their attention.
