The Atlantic Makes Only Its Third Endorsement Ever And It's To Oppose Donald Trump

The Atlantic is a Washington, D.C.-based publication that has been in existence for 159 years. They have made only two presidential endorsements in their history. Those endorsements were for Abraham Lincoln in 1860 and Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964.

Yesterday the Atlantic has made it's third endorsement in it's history and it's not for Donald Trump.

The magazine has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president and stated that her opponent Donald Trump is “the most ostentatiously unqualified major-party candidate in the 227-year history of the American presidency".

Despite the endorsement the magazine’s editors do admit that Hillary Clinton "has her flaws" but then point out that "She is among the most prepared candidates ever".

If the nod to Clinton wasn't enough the article entitled gave a litany of reasons why their readers should vote against Trump stating that the GOP standard bearer...

"Has no record of public service and no qualifications for public office. His affect is that of an infomercial huckster; he traffics in conspiracy theories and racist invective; he is appallingly sexist; he is erratic, secretive, and xenophobic; he expresses admiration for authoritarian rulers, and evinces authoritarian tendencies himself. He is easily goaded, a poor quality for someone seeking control of America’s nuclear arsenal. He is an enemy of fact-based discourse; he is ignorant of, and indifferent to, the Constitution; he appears not to read"

Hey, The Atlantic, tell us how you really feel.
