(CNN)Hillary Clinton is not the lesser of two evils in this election. There's only one "evil" in this race, and his name is Donald J. Trump. That was on clear display during Trump's speech Wednesday, which was riddled with falsehoods.

I say this as a person who passionately supported Bernie Sanders during the primaries. After all, Clinton was -- and continues to be -- the less progressive candidate on issues both domestic and foreign. She maintains uncomfortably strong ties to Wall Street and remains hawkish on international affairs.
