    Under each scandal in the article are two sections.
    The first section is titled, "The Dirt".
    The second section is titled "The Upsot".

    The scandals speak much about the man. His being rich has kept him out of jail.

    I see both as flawed individuals and Trump as more deeply flawed.

    I believe his only interest, his only goal is himself.I do not see him ever having anyone's welfare but his own as his goal. I do not believe he believes in anything and will do anything, harm anyone to enrich, in all the meanings of enrich, himself. I see him as a real and present danger to our democracy and to our country. I do not trust him at all in seeking the welfare of our great country.

    On any issue, toward any person Trump will flip and flop and always have only himself in mind.

    And why do you not say exactly the same about Hillary?

    No and certainly not to the same extent. I see nothing in Trump to make me believe he has any real interest in the welfare of the US or in your and me. I see nothing redeeming in Trump. He has cute catch lines that brings applause. But he flips and flops even in his catch lines. He appears to be a complete camelion.

    So Hillary's interest, her goal, is more than herself?
    She has others' welfare rather than her own as her goal?
    She won't do anything, or harm anyone, to enrich herself?
    She's not a real and present danger to our democracy and our country?

    You trust her in seeking the welfare of our great country?

    I personally say "no" to these questions about both candidates. Can you honestly answer "yes" to any of them about Hillary? If so, how do you honestly justify that? (not in comparison to Trump; but about her, and only her)

    I trust her more than I trust Trump whom I do not trust at all. He has never shown any real allegiance to the welfare of the country or to any people other than himself.

    Yes CTB that is probably true, however his personal welfare is most likely tied to the national welfare as is the case with almost all Americans.

    I asked you to consider the questions based on her, and only her; not compared to Trump. And if you could answer yes to any of them, to honestly justify why you answered yes.

    Instead, you compared her to Trump, and didn't give specifics as to how she shows allegiance to the welfare of the country or anyone besides herself.

    In other words, you can't honestly say "yes" to any of those questions about Hillary, can you?
