The National Review published an entire issue this week declaring why they and dozens of leading conservatives are opposed to a Donald Trump presidential nomination. "We see our roll as holding up a banner for conservatives without fear or favor," said editor and publisher of the National Review Rich Lowry. Who do they support instead? Their editorial board is divided. Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders brushes off Planned Parenthood's and Human Rights Campaign's endorsements of Hillary Clinton as mere political establishment support. "Does someone need to be sticking up for the establishment," asked Josh Barro. "It is what stands between us and anarchy." Jamil Smith notes that Bernie Sanders does not appeal to the African-American electorate. In Flint, Michigan, people are still waiting for drinkable tap water. "If we don't draw real change and accountability from this then our political system is as eroded as those pipes," Katrina vanden Heuval said.
