For some time now, I have argued that Trump defeating Hillary would be the best thing that could have happened for Bernie’s political revolution. That premise gained traction among progressives as Hillary Clinton and the DNC were exposed by Wikileaks and Julian Assange.
Most Berners, myself included, bemoaned Bernie’s loss to Hillary and constantly argued that Bernie Sanders would have handily defeated Donald Trump.
