Trump and the News Today

Well, this is really Trump and the News Every Day.
It’s just that today in a column from the NYTimes on how great and successful progressives are at changing the culture they give us a paragraph like this:

Two things have fundamentally changed the landscape. First, over the past two years conservatives have self-marginalized. In supporting Donald Trump they have tied themselves to a man whose racial prejudices, sexual behavior and personal morality put him beyond the pale of decent society.

How come conservatives self marginalize, but progressives who supported Hillary are NOT tied to a woman who cheats (personal morality anyone?), who disdains other women (misogyny), who does not have any common sense (emails), and who is willing to sell out her country for a buck (Uranium One).  ?

I’d be ok with both depictions if I ever saw the 2nd on.  Since we don’t I’m stuck defending Trump from all comers.
