A member of The Wall Street Journal’s traditionally conservative editorial board has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, calling her “eminently sane” and bashing Republican nominee Donald Trump as the candidate of “white supremacists and swastika devotees.”

{mosads}“It will be either Mr. Trump or Mrs. Clinton — experienced, forward-looking, indomitably determined and eminently sane,” Dorothy Rabinowitz wrote in a column published Thursday night. 

“Her election alone is what stands between the American nation and the reign of the most unstable, proudly uninformed, psychologically unfit president ever to enter the White House.”

Rabinowitz also noted a number of criticisms she has of Clinton and chided her for deciding to “ramble on, familiarly, about institutional racism” during the first presidential debate on Monday.

“Even so, such proclivities pale next to the occasion for cringing that would come with a Trump presidency,” she wrote. 

“No one witnessing Mr. Trump’s primary race — his accumulation of Alt-Right cheerleaders, white supremacists and swastika devotees — could fail to notice the menacing tone and the bitterness that came with it.”
