With Pres. Donald J. Trump in the White House and his second U.S. Supreme Court nomination ready to change America for decades to come, Democrats have every reason to be worried. After all, the party of “no” has been taking it on the chin in special elections and their mythic “Blue Wave” is just that, a myth.
Recognizing that Pres. Trump’s choice of Judge Brett Kavanaugh may hail the end of liberal extremism, Democrats are asking themselves “how did I get here.” Open borders, excessive regulations, bad trade deals perhaps?
Ex-Pres. Barrack Obama is quoted slamming Democrats for whining and crying about the current state of political affairs. CNN contributor Van Jones raises some interesting points about how downtrodden liberal voters and organizers have become with their former inspirational leader absent.
Jones, who was quietly off the CNN radar after praising Pres. Trump for his first major speech, strikes the same mood Obama appears to be pushing against. The days of fierce organizing and activism appear to be winding down from Democrats as Pres. Trump wins on the economy, wins on minority employment, wins on his Travel Ban, and wins on Making America Great Again.
With Van Jones back on the anti-Trump train, the discussion turns to what Democrats can do going forward. The left’s ideas will certainly leave you rolling your eyes.
Take a few moments with this CNN segment and decide whether or not the Democrats have given up or are just tired of losing!
