Drop Out Hillary
Nederlandse mainstream-journalisten als de presentator Twan Huys en de éminence grise van de polderpers Henk Hofland mogen dan wel hun 'Hillary' de 'ideale kandidaat' vinden, daarentegen hebben ontwikkelde Amerikanen een ander beeld van haar.
“Drop out Hillary,” say left-wing Twitter users: Clinton “can’t buy this election”

It is looking more and more like the U.S. presidential election could be between Donald Trump, a far-right demagogic billionaire, and Hillary Clinton, an extremely hawkish Wall Street-backed multimillionaire.
Trump was left as the last Republican candidate standing this week, after Ted Cruz dropped out on Tuesday night and campaign officials confirmed on Wednesday that fellow candidate John Kasich would be suspending his campaign as well.
In a surprise upset, however, Bernie Sanders won the primary in Indiana on Tuesday by more than 5 percent, “throwing a wrench” in Clinton’s strategy, as Yahoo News put it.
Sanders supporters and other leftists are protesting the lack of substantively different candidates in the election, and refuse to be left with the choice of a lesser evil.
The hashtag #DropOutHillary was trending on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon, as left-wing users pushed back against the Democratic Party establishment.
Jill Stein, the presidential candidate for the Green Party, also chimed in.
“Seeing #DropOutHillary & #Republicans4Hillary show how divisive the corporate front running candidates are. Let’s chose a different path,” wrote Stein, who has asked Sanders to cooperate in a “revolution for people, planet and peace.”
