I made a quick illustration of what is my favorite quote from the interview:

Personally I think that both @garyjohnson2016 and @jillsteinforamerica have some really great, progressive ideas. And if the GOP candidate wasn't #trump I would be a lot more excited by both of their candidacies. But here's the very real and heartbreaking problem: practically speaking a vote for Gary Johnson or Jill Stein is a vote for #trump. We saw this in 2000 with Ralph Nader. Well intentioned progressives voted for Nader and we ended up with 8 years of GW Bush. Everyone should vote their conscience, but you have to ask yourself how you'll feel knowing that you didn't do all that you could to make sure that racist, misogynist, sociopath, climate change denying, #trump is defeated. A protest vote loses its nobility when it results in a Trump Presidency.
You can guess by these items I've shared that I'm not voting for Trump. I'll leave it at that for now.
