Do you still feel good about that Jill Stein protest vote?

Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring from the Supreme Court, which means President Trump will have the opportunity to appoint a conservative justice and change the face of the court for decades. Many liberals blame Jill Stein for getting us into this mess; her supporters helped Trump get elected and now the reversal of Roe v. Wade and marriage equality are very real possibilities. But thank god you "voted your conscience," right? Do you still feel good about that protest vote?

Many were quick to blame Jill Stein and her high-profile supporters when Kennedy announced his retirement.

Actress Susan Sarandon famously said she'd prefer Donald Trump to Hillary Clinton because Trump would be more likely to usher in a "political revolution." How's that working out Sarandon?

Stein voters often claim they voted for her because they couldn't bring themselves to vote for Clinton, but does anyone honestly believe Clinton would've been worse than Trump at this point?

But others feel Stein is just the go-to liberal punching bag.

Blaming Stein and her supporters is a cop-out. Democrats should be concerned with the millions of people who didn't vote at all, not those who voted third party.

Sarandon still defends her decision to vote for Stein and claims it wasn't a "protest vote" at all.

“It wasn’t a protest vote. Following Bernie wasn’t a protest.” Voting for Jill Stein was, by any definition, a protest vote. “Well, I knew that New York was going to go [for Hillary]. It was probably the easiest place to vote for Stein. Bringing attention to working-class issues is not a luxury. People are really hurting; that’s how this guy got in. What we should be discussing is not the election, but how we got to the point where Trump was the answer.”

But whatever happened to that recount money... 🤔

Stein had raised $7.3 million for swing-state recounts and had hinted that donors would have the ability to vote on how she would spend any leftover money. But those recount efforts came to an end in December 2016 and no votes have been offered. Instead, since then, the Stein campaign has pursued recount-related litigation in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, seeking to access the source code of electronic voting machines. Most of the money spent in the past several months has been on lawyers and filing fees. But money has also been used to keep Stein’s 2016 core campaign staff intact.
