In my entire life, I have never seen such vitriol, character assassination, hyperbole, and name calling by a political party, than what has been said by key people in the Democratic Party regarding Trump and all the people who would be part of his administration.
During the election process, Hillary Clinton went off the rails and called Trump voters a "basket of deplorables". Well, those deplorables won.
"Recently, without any proof, Nancy Pelosi said this about Trump advisor Steve Bannon: “It’s a stunning thing that a white supremacist, Bannon, would be a
permanent member of the National Security Council and dismissing [the]
Chairman of Joint Chiefs and the Director of National Intelligence as
When Trump announced Judge Gorsuch as his Supreme Court Pick, Pelosi said this: “Clean air, clean water, food safety, safety in medicine, and the rest, if you care about that for your children, he’s not your guy.” My guess is that she would have said that about anyone that Trump would have chosen as his Supreme Court nominee.
Even though the New York Times found Gorsuch slightly more conservative than Antonin Scalia and less conservative than Clarence Thomas, former Democratic National Committee chief, Donna Brazile declared him "extreme".
Not to be outdone, Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren took this shot at Trump and his Cabinet: "We will resist every single effort to make America into a small and
spiteful place. We will resist every injustice. We will resist every
effort to divide us. We will resist every effort to disgrace our
Constitution. We will resist every single step toward the takeover of
our government by billionaires, bankers and bigots."
Then there this comment from Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer about Trump's choice for Secretary of Education as well as other cabinet picks: "In my mind, she is the least-qualified nominee in a historically unqualified Cabinet." In essence Schumer thinks that every one of Trump's cabinet members are unqualified.
Lastly, as the Washington Post is reporting, "virtually all" Senate Democrats will vote against any of Trump's cabinet nominees. Thus, proving the title of this blog post.
Is this the way our founders wanted our government to work?
