AP

New media writer Clay Shirky took to Twitter Friday afternoon to dismiss white liberals’ response to Donald Trump as ineffective and self-indulgent – and to rally them to defeat Trump.

“Believe this: Trump could win,” Shirky tweeted. “We can help stop him, but that means giving up on a lot of comfortable illusions.”
