Systemic corruption versus Armageddon
In this clip Uygur is asked if he could in good conscience vote for the Queen of Corruption Clinton. Uygur first establishes the loaded nature of the question, as if to vote for Clinton instead of Trump is to betray ones progressive credentials. He then notes that yes, Clinton is indeed systemically corrupt, but the alternative in Trump is a monster that will literally take down the economy and institute systemic racism, etc. Given that choice one can still acknowledge Clinton's corruption and the worst case scenario in Trump.
