Cornell West on a train that never leaves the station

On Real Time last night Maher tries to get West to see that Trump would be a disaster, and that voting for Stein achieves that disaster. So Maher offers up an analogy of two trains, one going to your destination and one that doesn’t. Granted the Clinton train gets there a bit slower but the the Trump train goes in the opposite direction. West doesn’t believe the Clinton train is going where he wants and the Stein train is. But the Stein train never leaves the station so one can never reach their destination.
