Take a few minutes and read this lengthy piece by Scott Alexander, the pseudonym of a psychiatrist who writes at Slate Star Codex. His posts are consistently interesting and thought provoking. He also endorsed Hillary Clinton and thinks Trump is a very weird guy who will be a terrible president.

But he also thinks the hysteria about Trump, at least as to his alleged prejudices, is completely unjustified and should stop. He takes the reader through the allegations and then patiently deconstructs each.
Here are his closing paragraphs:
Stop centering criticism of Donald Trump around this sort of stuff, and switch to literally anything else. Here is an incompetent thin-skinned ignorant boorish fraudulent omnihypocritical demagogue with no idea how to run a country, whose philosophy of governance basically boils down to “I’m going to win and not lose, details to be filled in later”, and all you can do is repeat, again and again, how he seems popular among weird Internet teenagers who post frog memes. In the middle of an emotionally incontinent reality TV show host getting his hand on the nuclear button, your chief complaint is that in the middle of a few dozen denunciations of the KKK, he once delayed denouncing the KKK for an entire 24 hours before going back to denouncing it again. When a guy who says outright that he won’t respect elections unless he wins them does, somehow, win an election, the headlines are how he once said he didn’t like globalists which means he must be anti-Semitic.
Stop making people suicidal. Stop telling people they’re going to be killed. Stop terrifying children. Stop giving racism free advertising. Stop trying to convince Americans that all the other Americans hate them. Stop. Stop. Stop.
