Because they got popular and hating popular things is always popular.

Also, those spinners help some people with ADHD focus but for others it is an distraction. Seeing as those things are sold to people who don't really need them people think that everyone is similarly distracted when using them. Or that they are useless.

Why is everyone and their dog whining about fidget spinners? It's like half the internet thinks a children's toy is the second coming of Hitler.

ETA: And technically, Bernie was never Trumps electoral opponent, as he didn't make it to the general to compete with Trump for votes. Looking at how Russia used Bernie, you could make a better argument that he was an electoral ally to Trump, dragging out the primary and fraying feelings, thus hurting Hillary's electability.

Except that, in a sense, Sanders was Trump's electoral opponent in some states, in that they were competing for voters if not votes. If you consider, say, South Carolina, which has an open primary, a voter looking for a populist candidate for whom to vote had, basically, Trump and Sanders, and so that voter would choose which party's primary to participate in based on whether they'd rather vote for Trump or for Sanders.

And anyway, "Crazy" fits Trump.

ETA:

Remind me: Who said that there was violence at the Nevada convention? Who denied Bernie "super-volunteers" credentials to the Democratic National Convention? Who gave away the floor seats of elected and credentialed Sanders delegates to Clinton volunteers? Who held voice votes at that convention when the room was packed with said volunteers?

Oh, and who had supporters called "PUMAs" in 2008?

Attacker named, was connected to ISIS. Milo is also in the same story because having a expat-Brit take advantage of 22 deaths just to make point for his Neo-Nazi politics is still a low blow.

It just struck me that Trump's nicknames for his electoral opponents were a massive case of projection: "Lyin'" (Cruz), "Little" (Rubio), "Crooked" (Clinton) and "Crazy" (Sanders) all describe Trump pretty well.

And Pocahontas?

Electoral opponents.

(Insert grumbling that Clinton didn't choose Warren as her running mate... though even then she wouldn't have been Trump's electoral opponent.)

Yeah, grumble grumble grumble.

This does worry me for future elections.  If we allow Russia to easily tamper with information to get what they want. What's going to stop them from doing this again and again?
