Quote of the Day

While I'm sure a lot of Trump supporters had fair and legitimate reasons for their choice, it is an uncomfortable and unavoidable fact that everyone who voted for Donald Trump -- all 62,984,825 of them -- made the decision to elect a man who bragged about sexual assault, attacked a federal judge for being Mexican and grieving Gold Star parents who were Muslim, and had a long and well-documented history of racial discrimination in his businesses.  That doesn't mean every Trump voter approved of those things, but at a minimum they accepted or overlooked them.  And they did it without demanding the basics that Americans used to expect from all presidential candidates, from releasing tax returns to offering substantive policy proposals to upholding common standards of decency.

-- Hillary Rodham Clinton, What Happened, p. 413-414
