rinse, repeat.

Its not only condescending, its intelligence insulting to try and pretend, here, that somehow millennials not wanting to be condescended to has jack diddly shit to do with cops shooting minorities.

millennials not wanting to be codescended to doesnt have anything to do with cops shooting minorities. "Berniebros" dont have anything to do with cops shooting minorities.

Know what has to do with cops shooting minorities? The DRUG WAR. That Hillary helped escalate. That Bernie Sanders, at least, has had the guts to call a "failure".

Anyway, These lame tactics have permeated hillary's campaign, substituting for issues and policy based conversation, all the way to the top.

One hopes that smart people - and Hillary is smart- can do better.

One hopes.
