To be fair, Trump has not staffed something like two thirds of the non-cabinet positions he's supposed to appoint (as well as making noises that he's probably not going to either.) One of his principal advisers, Bannon, is also on record about their desire to severely shrink gov and retain more control at the executive level (Kushner's massive portfolio is a good example of this.) So, unlike the more diffuse administrations of the past, control and command is very much vested in the White House, and therefore, Trump himself.

So could any number of other democrats (or non-republicans) you could think of who do not have the last name of Clinton.

No. You need a certain amount of name recognition to get anywhere on the national political stage in the US. Pop quiz: Can you name the other Democratic candidates last year not named Sanders or Clinton without looking them up?

Second, one of the things that did Hillary in was poor perception due to 25 years of right-wing smearing. You think that hose wouldn't get redirected onto Sanders the minute he gets the nomination? Americans love voting against the guy who's even remotely not on the US Big Penis military bandwagon. They could have run Nixon against him and he'd have lost.

If the DNC hadn't, with Clinton's help, stolen the nomination from Sanders

Yawn. Yeah, the Clinton camp got what, 2 million more votes than Bernie, who, it should be noted, isn't even a Democrat. Totes stolen!

there would be no President Trump.

Ahhh, the ol' 'Bernie could've beaten Trump!' canard. Literally only possible to imagine if you haven't been paying to conservative rhetoric for the last 70 years.

Jesus, next you'll tell me you're an anti-vaxxer...

The single person with the most responsibility for creating President Trumputin is Clinton.

You have a shaky grasp of how democracies work, but don't let that get in the way of a good rage on!

Also, if we're going to use that kind of bizarre logic for our cause and effect, then Obama's really the one to blame, since making fun of Trump at the 2011 WHCD was what cemented his desire to run in the first place.
