Trump-haters are nuts

In last night's debate, Donald Trump was asked if he had ever kissed a women without her permission. The moderator implied that Trump had admitted to criminal sexual assault in a leaked video.

So I finally viewed the video. The only thing Trump admits to is once taking a married woman furniture shopping in a very private and crude conversation. And that he is attracted to beautiful women.

I am coming to the conclusion that the Trump-haters suffer from some sort of mental illness. They express shock and outrage, but what did they expect? Are they really as clueless as they appear?

Here is a Slate Star Codex rant against Trump from 2 weeks ago:
The nightmare scenario is that Trump wins, his style of anti-intellectual populism is cemented as Official New Republican Ideology, and every educated person switches to the Democrats.

I’m not 100% this would be bad – maybe educated people who are temperamentally conservative would pull the Democratic Party a little to the right, turning them into a broad moderate coalition which has no problem winning elections and combines the smartest elements of liberal and conservative thought. ...

One more warning for conservatives who still aren’t convinced. If the next generation is radicalized by Trump being a bad president, they’re not just going to lean left. They’re going to lean regressive, totalitarian, super-social-justice left.
If so, here is some of their forbidden language:
1. “Some of my best friends are …”
2. “I know exactly how you feel.”
3. “I don’t think of you as …” ...

16. “I never owned slaves.” ...

32. I don’t care if you are pink, purple or orange, I treat all people the same.”
If "intellectual" means shaming ppl for micro-aggressions, then put me down as anti-intellectual.
