The election of Donald Trump has caused the political left to go stark raving mad. There is very little civility among today’s liberals. They were so certain that Hillary Clinton would win the presidency that they are unable to accept the reality of a Trump administration and agenda. In the Congress, there was so much anger that dozens of liberal Democrats boycotted the President’s inauguration. This was an unprecedented display of partisan bitterness. From that day forward, Democrats have refused to work with the new President, instead preferring obstructionism. In the Senate, Democrats delayed confirmation votes on the President’s cabinet nominees. In fact, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) insulted the cabinet, an outstanding collection of business executives and political leaders, by calling them “a bunch of scumbags.
How can any President work with such hateful and unhinged Democrats? Waters and several of her radical congressional colleagues are also pursuing impeachment charges against President Trump. These Democrats are not willing to engage in bipartisan cooperation or even give President Trump a chance. They are playing to the leftists in academia, the media and the special groups by opposing the President at every turn. This type of mentality has also been on display at Republican town hall meetings across the country. In many cases, liberal protesters have been disrespectful and disruptive. At a town hall meeting in Metairie, LA for U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA), protesters were so deranged that they booed the opening prayer and the pledge of allegiance. The meeting went downhill from there and instead of participating in useful dialogue, the liberals decided to yell and interrupt the proceedings.
Now, the verbal abuse is starting to turn into physical abuse. At college campuses, conservative speakers have been forced to cancel speeches because liberals have rioted, burned cars and broken windows. College students trying to attend these speeches have been subjected to pepper spray or been hit with bags of urine. Canadafreepress – Read On>>>>>
Soundly defeated in Presidential election and State Governor ships; now overly excited because they won some legislature seats in mostly Blue state.
Democrats see early election wins as sign of things to come
Downbeat Democrats are drawing hope from a handful of state-level special elections as they look to turn opposition to President Trump into a boost at the ballot box.
In seven of nine recent contested special elections, the Democratic candidate eclipsed Hillary Clinton’s margin over Donald Trump in the presidential election, some outperforming Clinton by more than 30 percentage points. In the eyes of Democrats hoping to capitalize on an unprecedented wave of protests, that’s a promising step.
But Republicans, who now hold more than 1,000 more state legislature seats than they did in 2008, are far from worried. They point to the fact that, since Election Day, Democrats haven’t managed to actually flip a single Republican-held seat in their favor.
The two most prominent Democratic victories came in Connecticut and Delaware in late February, where victories in blue-leaning districts allowed the party to maintain control of the state senates. Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez claimed those victories as proof of a rising tide against Trump.
Perez called the victory in Delaware the beginning of the party’s “comeback,” and followed up with a similar statement on Connecticut. THE HILL – Read ON>>>>>

Disgrace: Keith Ellison and Debbie Wasserman Schultz Remain Seated Like Cold Stones When Navy SEAL’s Widow Was Honored
Congressional Democrats, still sour over Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Donald J. Trump, remained mostly seated and still throughout the president’s first address to Congress. Guy offered his analysis on this, and the consensus is that this was his best speech yet. More importantly, it showed that Trump had become presidential. The tone was softer, though it did not shy away from the promises he made on the campaign trail.
Yet, as Trump discussed support for law and order, law enforcement, and other subjects that usually garner bipartisan gold claps, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) were seen debating with whether to stand or remain seated during some of Trump’s biggest applause lines. Independent Journal Review’s Benny Johnson tweeted that the two were whispering, “Should we stand?”
WEBMASTER COMMENT: I do not buy Scopes explanation of this incident, I watched the whole talk and they both were sitting when the camera panned them, If the stood up at the first introduction, but as the president and everyone else in the house continued to applaud, they should have shown the same courtesy!
