Yeah, Trump's an asshat so we really need Clinton in the Oval Office...

“Can’t we just drone this guy?” Clinton openly inquired, offering a simple remedy to silence Assange and smother Wikileaks via a planned military drone strike, according to State Department sources. The statement drew laughter from the room which quickly died off when the Secretary kept talking in a terse manner, sources said. Clinton said Assange, after all, was a relatively soft target, “walking around” freely and thumbing his nose without any fear of reprisals from the United States. Clinton was upset about Assange’s previous 2010 records releases, divulging secret U.S. documents about the war in Afghanistan in July and the war in Iraq just a month earlier in October, sources said. At that time in 2010, Assange was relatively free and not living cloistered in in the embassy of Ecuador in London. Prior to 2010, Assange focused Wikileaks’ efforts on countries outside the United States but now under Clinton and Obama, Assange was hammering America with an unparalleled third sweeping Wikileaks document dump in five months. Clinton was fuming, sources said, as each State Department cable dispatched during the Obama administration was signed by her.
Immediately following the conclusion of the wild brainstorming session, one of Clinton’s top aides, State Department Director of Policy Planning Ann-Marie Slaughter, penned an email to Clinton, Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, and aides Huma Abebin and Jacob Sullivan at 10:29 a.m. entitled “an SP memo on possible legal and nonlegal strategies re Wikileaks.”
Anybody think she'd have any moral problem with signing the order if she was President?

The best most convincing argument I've so far come up with, not so much in favor of Trump but in keeping Hillary out of the WH is the following:

"Remember...A candidate can make all the policy plans they want, but everything still has to clear Congress. THEY make the laws...not the president.

Now, which of the two candidates do you think Congress will do everything in their power to stymie, and which one will be gifted with an automatic rubber stamping machine?

I'm no fan of either of them, but at least with trump there's a fighting chance to prevent disaster."

Pretty much. And with Johnson continually saying stupid things, his chances of being a serious challenger keep taking hits.
