Are they hypocrites or simply delusional?
Liberals keep insisting that Donald Trump and his supporters are violent, and that the GOP is on the verge of cracking up — all while the Democratic Party is in an unprecedented meltdown.
When was the last time the Dems were this publicly split? The Hillary vs. Bernie divide shows no sign of healing.

It’s as if liberals just can’t help themselves when it comes to self-destructive behavior.
