Just when you thought the 2016 election could not get any more bizarre, the Green Party’s nominee for president, Dr. Jill Stein, appeared to offer a tacit endorsement of GOP nominee Donald Trump over rival Hillary Clinton.
…to the befuddlement of liberals everywhere.
Pointing to Russia, Stein posted a comment on Twitter Friday saying the Democratic nominee’s foreign policy is “much scarier” that Trump’s:
Hillary Clinton's foreign policy is much scarier than Donald Trump's, who does not want to go to war with Russia. #PeaceOffensive

Here’s the reaction from members of the media and other noted liberals, courtesy of Twitchy.com:
This may actually be the most insane statement of the entire campaign season. https://t.co/Jm5DDT9E6Y

“Trump may be a bigot but at least he’s a tool of Russian foreign policy” is a fun new Left take of this fall.

I know people say protest votes are a waste, but I’ve decided 20% of my vote for Clinton is a protest against this: https://t.co/xOh81ffjRL

Of course, the regular folks were, shall we say a little more direct? with their criticism of Stein… here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
@DrJillStein are you fucking kidding?

@DrJillStein I know you prefer Trump to Hillary but please give it a rest – you’re just making yourself a laughing stock?

@DrJillStein Delete your candidacy. And then your account.

@DrJillStein you come out of the woodwork every four years and do nothing in between and we’re supposed to take you seriously? Please.

@DrJillStein You are an incredibly embarrassing Green Party candidate. All you do is try to be provocative for attention, like Trump. Stop.

@DrJillStein This statement is so irresponsible as to be entirely disqualifying. Shame on you.
