    I’m very afraid that a lot of media people will be out of jobs soon.
    Wait, that isn’t fear I’m feeling.
    Bwahahah

    • taw46 says:

      What a nasty piece. Yeah, what you said, FU.

    • dm says:

      From what I’ve read, what is really tragic is his drinking and hiding in the closet.

    • kanaughty says:

      Awesome!

    • kanaughty says:

      I have to say, i am so glad liberals are learning their lesson they can’t always get their way because their will be pushback, backlash and peaceful revolution against them.

      • lyn says:

        We deplorables have awesome power now!

        • foxyladi14 says:

          And we will use it too. 😀

          • kanaughty says:

            Yeah, i don’t believe trump will be like obama in wasting his time before he may not have a majority anymore after 2 years. I hope the repubs realize this too and work really hard for reelection with trumps new focus for the party on america first and stop all this bush era globalist crap. The dems really screwed up when they wasted time with their supermajority, being way over confident that they would stay in power like the 3000 year reich. Lol. Thank god for the tea party wiping out their lead.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I’m going to nominate The Deplorables for Time’s Persons of the Year. Standing in lines for hours in all weather several times a week for about a year….never gave up their enthusiasm for DJT and they kept him and the rest of us inpsired to slog on 😀

          • elliesmom says:

            In all fairness, that’s what the Republicans just did. I’m just not sure the Democrats can pull themselves together quite as well. Except for the Republican elite, the rest of the Republicans and like-minded Independents share very common goals. The Democrats are made up of a lot of groups with conflicting interests. Appeasing Muslims means eventually antagonizing women. Requiring black churches to perform same sex marriages is going to go over like a lead balloon. The coalition has been held together by a common hatred of the Republicans, but Trump showed some of them are pretty easy pickings.

          • elliesmom says:

            That ended up in the wrong place. I think nominating the Deplorables is a brilliant idea.

          • kanaughty says:

            I am going to make a bet that if time is honest with themselves, djt will be the person of the year, though i too love the deplorables idea better. But more often they actually do pick one person.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Of course, they’ll pick DJT to sell magazines again. But it struck me, he wouldn’t be here without his “movement”. In my lifetime, I’ve never seen another candidate’s supporters so vilified, demeaned, attacked while growing stronger. Indeed, a bloodless Revolution, The Deplorables…..and WE won 😀

    • driguana says:

      It is sometimes hard to believe that I actually used to like the New Yorker. This was a disgusting article and really shows how deeply out of touch the elitists are with what is really happening in this country.

  2. Let’s play a game.

    We’ll call it The Debt Pool.

    How soon after inauguration does the media rediscover true unemployment, a bad economy, crushing public debt, and the plight of the homeless?

  3. Dora says:

    It wasn’t just Newsweek. Germany also jumped the gun.

  4. Venus says:

    Those “hate crime” stories against Muslims are all hoaxes, btw. They can’t even be a little bit original.

    From Moremar at Big Pink:

    Progs, Dems, GOPe, globalists are very good at creating language and rationalizations about how this will be the end of humanity. No. Humanity will be fine. They need to start looking for alternate forms of income. Like a real job. Or selling their plasma. Trump broke the “consultant class” of Republicans by not using, needing or paying them. Rove is still furious as his scam is no longer operable. By the way Hillary’s bestest in the entire history of the world “GOTV” operation in fact got out Trump voters. It’s true. Talk about idiots. Under budget and ahead of time is the new mission statement of the US government. And this is why the stock market didn’t crash as foretold by the smartest people who ever lived. Always wrong. Lucky Trump.

    • taw46 says:

      Not just Muslims. Stories about blacks, gays, women, transgenders, you name it. Shaun King is “documenting” all of them.

    • Lulu says:

      Exactly. LOL. They are mad because they look like idiots.

      • Constance says:

        Well Democrats are afraid of their own illusions. It’s pathetic. Progs have contempt for us Trump voters and we have pity for them because they are so stupid and have been manipulated and exploited by Leftists. I’m waiting for the imaginary stories of Republicans coming to their homes and taking their birth control or dragging gay couples out of their homes and making them sleep in separate beds or something. That simply isn’t going to happen. But Liberals love stories.

      • Constance says:

        Also after Republican dominance for 4 years, when abortion law isn’t changed and birth control isn’t taken away, and no one cares what domestic arrangements gays make, what on earth are Progs going to use to boogiemanize Republicans to their idiot followers? Apparently their leaders don’t see actually discussing policy with them as a possibility.

    • Lulu says:

      Monisha has been fired. I think she is a Brit. O’Flanherty is a Brit and a “lifestyle” journalist free-lancher so I’m not sure anyone can fire him since he doesn’t have an employer but does piecework. They are both silly hysterics.

      • Lulu says:

        The UK can do what they want with them but they should be denied visas to the US and maybe go on the no-fly lists.

      • lateblum says:

        I think they are worse than silly. They are dangerous since they are “seen” as legitimate journalists. (at least in some places.) and their messages reach more than a few people.

  6. votermom says:

    I just checked and I am still not tired of winning yet.

    • kanaughty says:

      Me too, but my family really believed the bullshit the media kept reporting and my family is distraught. I don’t know what to do because i am more of an introvert. They’d never understand that my vote was about protecting and preserving the constitution mostly. The taking away of free speech for me but not for thee was my number 1 thing!

      • votermom says:

        Now’s the time to say to them – see, this is why I don’t believe the media.Always so wrong about everything. They’re basically just advertising for the corporations that own them.

        Follow up with – look how they said the stock market would crash if Trump was elected. It’s havibg the best run in years.

        • lateblum says:

          They also consistently predicted that HRC would win. So they really don’t know what they’re talking about.

    • driguana says:

      Still gloating, too!!!

    • Constance says:

      Same here! I don’t even know what to think, I am not used to being on the winning side.

  7. DeniseVB says:

    Nice to wake up to another day of being called a racist KKK lover of hate and division and other terms of endearment from *Friends* with mental issues. They’re getting easier to ignore and I posted that Brit’s rant on why Trump won. Passive Agressive behavior does feels good 😀

  8. DeniseVB says:

    Yep, worth it. Still not tired of winning either, but damn, it’s exhausting 😀

  9. Dora says:

    • lateblum says:

      I’m pissed as hell right now. I just heard a blurb on the radio that “Trump doesn’t like Chicago”. Seriously. I’m really fed up. I’d love to be able to afford a night at the Trump hotel in Chicago – preferably to watch the inauguration now. These left-wing idiots are testing my resolve but good.

  10. kanaughty says:

    Omg y’all i am so tired of these special snowflakes getting so much attention from the media and want to change the rules after the election is done to get their way with these petitions to have electora choose hillary. If these people get their way, expect a landslide in 2years and 4 years against these f’n babies that will rival 1980.

    • kanaughty says:

      Very good. They don’t just want to get along, they want their way only. No compromise thinking thanks to obama and his petulance in getting his way no matter what.

  11. taw46 says:

  12. kanaughty says:

    So i am looking up to see if they’ve finally called michigan for trump. I get to yahoo.com/news/elections and there is an 8 hour video of yahoo pundits (katie couric is one). Just watching the beginning and they are so sure hillary will win. It is hilarious!!! I want to watch it all or at least until wisconsin or pa are called.

  13. DandyTIger says:

    All my FB prog friends and some of my Twitter traffic is full of anecdotes, and as we’ve already seen, mostly made up stories, of bigotry incidents against progs. The stories are reenforcing their decisions. They’re actually having group hallucinations at this point.

  14. mothy67 says:

    I am appalled by what I am hearing and reading from leftists. One in reference to my dad said the world needs less old white men. I did not respond. They are responding to this election worse than Pretty Little Liars(sadly I am addicted to a show made for tween girls). They just cannot accept things did not go their way. Everyone else is some negative term. Stupid or racist. I had this odd thing happen to me called aging. I got older. I hope 18 year olds think no human is illegal. They don’t pay school tax. A district suddenly being inundated by people that do not speak english bears a very high cost. We got Nepal. The kids speak English very well but lack reading skills. Its a big cost. The thing is all of my ex friends that dictate how others should live in big little cities and send their less than average kids to private schools. Trust me they carry flasks but sip Pinot after yoga eat pills. So bored and unhappy all they have is to judge. We are 50 they operate like we are teens. I don’t get it. They are the poor end of wealthy. Think they are better. The kids are so spoiled. Its close to abuse. Vox writers are of that ilk. Imagine thinking you can tell other people how to think. A writer should give you a challenge not do a circle jerk.

    • votermom says:

      One in reference to my dad said the world needs less old white men.

      That’s vile.

      • Lulu says:

        Jealous because……they are impotent. And useless. The freakout is over who is going to pay them now. I’m telling ya it is about money. The Dem-prog-globalist grift machine is collapsing.

        • lateblum says:

          G-d I hope you’re right, Lulu. I do believe it is about the money. I hope you’re right about the Dem-prog-globalist grift machine is collapsing.

    • lateblum says:

      Stop reading those people who are so mean-spirited that they say,

      “the world needs less old white men”

      about your father. —- or any old person. Can you imagine how they feel about their own parents?
      *shudder*

  15. Lulu says:

    Prezzy Bobo scheduled his last victory lap and junket for Europe expecting to be succeeded by his third term crash test dummy. He badmouthed and insulted Trump and now he gets to explain that he, Prezzy Bobo, was completely repudiated by the electorate. http://bigstory.ap.org/article/ad892a1a81e54fea863edb2a103f4fce/last-foreign-tour-obama-must-find-way-explain-trump
    “Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security adviser, said the president fully expects Trump’s election to be a dominant theme of the trip, but would emphasize his plans to keep carrying out his approach until Trump takes over. He said Obama would argue that basic U.S. principles like honoring treaty commitments have historically survived even the most dramatic changes of administrations.”
    Benny the dim younger son and failed novelist still hasn’t learned that a treaty is not a treaty unless it passes the approval of the Senate. Trump is not required to “honor” any of Prezzy Bobo’s out of his ass agreements not ratified by the US Senate. The AP thinks the US public doesn’t understand this. Europe (and Iran) do in fact understand it too. I doubt any of the European leaders are going to waste much breath or courtesy on a lame duck loser. His time as explainer, complainer, hectorer and lecturer in chief is over.

    • Lulu says:

      They are desperately searching for “virtue signaling” to calm themselves down. It is a form of tattle-tales (even if lies) trying to curry favor and up their serotonin only via Twitter. Let’s call it Twattle.

      • DandyTIger says:

        LOL. And agree. Twattle.

        • Lulu says:

          Their entire self identity is based on their “smartness” and how “good” they are. They are neither smart nor good and got poleaxed with that fact in this election. CAN NOT PROCESS, CAN NOT PROCESS. But at issue too is that they thought the world (or maybe just US taxpayers and prog bullied business) owed them a living because they are smart and good. Being neither they are looking into the void and experiencing an existential identity crisis. Of course this is the real world. And tough shit for them.

  17. Dora says:

  21. mothy67 says:

    I think progs are like mark Rothko fans. a while back I was going to a Rothko retrospective at the Whitney. I was late and drunk because I had been boinking Arnold Horshack from Welcome Back Kotter.growing up Fine Art was not apart of my diet. We ate coffee soup. I was not familiar with Rothko so I read an article. he does not pump my nads. I find him without stimulation. So I am walking through the Whitney and hear all these people discussing his work using the exact words from the New Yorker article. All I could think was bullshit. There was one woman crying. its blue on black on purple. Really public tears?

    • kanaughty says:

      Mark rothko is overarrated but i do think the reason why he’s famous and deserves the fame is he was the first to say, hey i painted a canvas yellow and red, it’s art! No one else had done that before. So he was a rebel. But i am the same way about conceptual art of that period. It’s boring and too much can be read into it, when sometimes an artist is just painting or learning a new paint technique with no real intentions behind it.

  22. 1539days says:

    MSNBC was in full liberal media mode last night. Maddow did an hour about how Donald Trump is Hitler, Pence is going to turn women into slaves and how the US is now under Putin’s control. Crazy Larry O’Donnell’s show was about how Trump is stupid, he won’t end Obamacare or build the wall and Paul Ryan is going to tell him what to do.

    All Republicans are both stupid and evil, sticking to the same BS line since Ronald Reagan.

  23. mothy67 says:

    I also think most of our cultural overlords are just overly privledged. Days of yore writers were spat out from the belly of the beast. Real pain marginalized people. Desperate. F a g s booze bags of human bondage blew me away

      • lateblum says:

        I am sad to say this appears to be the current mission of newly minted social workers. . . Help everyone become dependent on the state.
        I left at the right time; our versions of independence are very different from one another.
        Btw, that YWCA is only a few blocks from where I live. The BLM demonstrations always begin there or at the Unitarian Church 4 blocks away. And she is correct. She does live in a big blue bubble.

  31. Lulu says:

    The crack-up begins.
    http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/305617-seething-liberals-vow-revolution-in-democratic-party
    “The Republican civil war was supposed to start this week.
    Instead, a ferocious struggle has erupted on the left over the smoldering remains of the Democratic Party.”
    “Progressives believe the Democratic establishment is responsible for inflicting Donald Trump upon the nation, blaming a staid corporate wing of the party for nominating Hillary Clinton and ignoring the Working Class voters that propelled Trump to victory.” This is especially strange since progressives such as Obama are funded by Wall St and big corporatism.
    “Liberals interviewed by The Hill want to see establishment Democrats targeted in primaries, and the “Clinton-corporate wing” of the party rooted out for good.”
    “The fight will begin over picking a new leader for the Democratic National Committee.”
    “Progressives are itching to see the national apparatus reduced to rubble and rebuilt from scratch, with one of their own installed at the top”.
    “And there is talk among some progressives, like Bill Clinton’s former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, about splitting from the Democratic Party entirely if they don’t get the changes they seek.”
    There will be blood. Read the whole thing. They have lost their minds.

    • taw46 says:

      So, they want to go more commie than they are now?

      • Lulu says:

        That is what it looks like on the surface. But it is the two schools of globalism fighting it out. All are elites who deserve to rule with an occasional shout out to the common man. The spoils got very small overnight. Most of the shit they are saying is coded language. They are fighting over sinecure paychecks. The Clintons got theirs, etc and the rest are furious that they are getting the short shrift.
        OT but maybe instructive. I know someone whose son is a Border Patrol agent. They are seeing a drop in the coyote led crossings. They caught one who said business is bad because illegals don’t think they will get enough benefit in the US to justify the cost of a coyote. Even illegal aliens know the money is going to be cut off. Globalists use the language of Marxism but practice oligarchy. The flunkies for the oligarchs get scraps but if those scraps disappear watch out.

        • taw46 says:

          Oh, I agree about the Globalists and the fight going on now for control/money. But I do think all of the “activist” groups, all of the anarchists, are true believers, Marxists.

        It is a massive realignment. The outgroups such as GOPe are trying to sneak back in. But the Dems are just splintering more because there isn’t anything really left to sneak back into. And they are going to have massive problems with fundraising because….LOSERS and they don’t control anything anymore so no blackmail or selling valuable favors. So they burn down their own cities? Why should non Prog/Dems care? No reason really. Go ahead and burn down your own shit. They are fucked.

    Do You Know Someone Suffering From Trump

    Acceptance Resistance Disorder (TARD)? Know the

    Signs, Spot the Symptoms, Save a Life

    Trump Acceptance Resistance Disorder is a pattern of pathologically dissociative and psychotic
    behavior, first observed in the late hours of November 8th 2016, and increasing in severity
    with passing time. Sufferers of Trump Acceptance Resistance Disorder often exhibit pronounced
    cognitive dissonance, sudden bouts of rage, uncontrollable crying, suicidal ideation, and
    extreme butthurt.
    Signs and Symptoms:
    People with Trump Acceptance Resistance Disorder are characterized by a persistent unwillingness to accept that Donald Trump is going to Make America Great Again. Individual sufferers often display signs of paranoia and delusion; in acute cases psychotic episodes have been observed.
    Trump Acceptance Resistance Disorder is different from being upset about the results of the 2016
    presidential election; People with TARD are unwilling or unable to accept reality, despite
    irrefutable evidence.
    According to the DSM-V, individuals with TARD exhibit most or all of the following symptoms:

    Telling others they are moving to Canada
    Fixated on fantasies about the Electoral College
    Protesting an election no credible source contests the outcome of
    Exclamations that “Someone” should do “Something”
    Sudden weight gain
    Acute change in demeanor from pompous and arrogant to fearful and combative
    Claim that anyone who disagrees with them is some

    combination of Racist, Sexist, Bigoted, Homophobic, and Actually Hitler

    Causes and Mechanisms:

    Trump Acceptance Resistance Disorder was directly caused by the election of Donald Trump as

    President of the United States of America. For many, both in America and worldwide, this was a shocking and unexpected outcome; their preferred news sources having failed to inform them that the alternative candidate was a criminal parasite in such ill health she got chucked into the back of a van like a kidnap victim.
    Research is ongoing, but TARD appears to correlate closely with the following environmental and behavioral factors:

    Membership in the Democratic party
    Identifying as a Feminist
    Currently enrolled in college, and/or
    Possession of a Liberal Arts college degree
    Cuckoldry
    Living in a densely populated metropolitan area
    Massive student debt
    Spotty or non-existent work history
    Hipsterism

    Diagnosis:

    Diagnosis of Trump Acceptance Resistance Disorder is straightforward. Ask the patient if Donald Trump is going to be the Next President of the United States of America. Some patients will become agitated, and may attempt to deflect. It’s critical you press them on the issue, even if they start babbling about ‘muh triggers’. A sufferer of TARD will begin to ramble
    incoherently, often displaying three or more of the symptoms within a short period of time.

    Co- morbidity:

    A diagnosis of Trump Acceptance Resistance Disorder is highly comorbid with Paraphilic Infantilism, Emotional Eating, Bush Derangement Syndrome, and adult bed wetting.

    Treatment:

    The only known effective treatment is exposure
    therapy. The patient must be repeatedly exposed to reality, and should wear a Make America Great Again hat as long as they are able to tolerate it. Each exposure should increase in length, after a week the patient should be encouraged to be seen in public wearing the MAGA hat. Coach the patient to refer to Donald Trump as President-Elect Trump.

    Patients with TARD are very resistant to treatment, and dangerous in large groups. Any possibility of treatment requires that they be separated from their hive-mind support apparatus; they cannot begin the process of accepting reality in the presence of encouragement towards delusion and irrationality. Separation may require the assistance of law enforcement.
    If you have a friend or loved one suffering from TARD, urge them to seek treatment. Together we
    can beat this scourge, and Make America Great Again!

    She doesn’t realize it yet, but smhe’s almost back…. Except for the 2nd to the last paragraph..

    Once you are able go take a step back, you can see the entire picture, not just your sliver of a view. Only then can you see everything that is going on, and decide what has real value.

    Both parties are corrupt. The odds that DJT can fix it are pretty slim, but we know the othe candidates isn’t want to fix it… So we are taking a chance… And you never know, maybe all those working class folks aren’t so stupid after all.

  37. NBD says:

    Well, my prog cousin just cancelled the Thanksgiving gathering that was supposed to take place at his house. “There’s nothing to be thankful for, no point in celebrating anything,” according to him. I can’t say I mind, since there would have been a fair amount of political tension at the table. I’m betting that he and his wife also plan not celebrating Christmas, which is bound to make their three kids really happy.

    • taw46 says:

      I have mentioned before that I live with two relatives, they are of the MSNBC type. We had an unspoken agreement a couple of months ago to not talk politics. Although I was the one who mainly kept quiet in the first place. Since Tuesday night, there is definitely a chill in the air. They have not talked to me except when they have to, about groceries, about the dogs, etc. I have not said one word about the outcome of this election. And if the results were reversed, I would not be treating them this way. One is my sister, whom I love dearly. My mother in heaven must be crying tears right now, because my sister and I have been close our entire life. I can’t believe she is putting politics before me.

      • NBD says:

        I don’t think our situations are in any way unique: my sense is that there’s a whole lot of family drama surrounding the outcome of the election. My family normally gathers at my mom’s place for Christmas, but at least one of my three siblings will not show this year. My sister lives in NYC and is a diehard Bernie supporter who has announced her intention to relocate to Europe. Her company will pay for the relocation, so I think she’s serious. It’s pretty sad to think that I’m unlikely so see much of her for the next few years. There was a time when we were quite close, but politics has put an end to that.

          This all started back in 2008. My sister and I both said we would not vote for Obama after the primaries ended. By July of that year, she was back with the Dems and voting for Obama. She did not speak to me for 2 months.

          It is sad indeed that they put politics first. My mother had 5 brothers, and they were split between R and D. They used to have rowdy discussions, but they were never mean to one another and always laughed about it. Something terribly wrong with our society today.

          Sorry you are having to go through it as well.

        I think I know what you might be feeling. My one brother who had been sending me anti-Trump cartoons, editorials, mailings, has not contacted me since the day before the election. My other brother, to whom I am the most close, knew how I felt/feel about HRC. He hasn’t spoken or written. My sister who called me a racist when I supported HRC in 2008, called me a racist because I didn’t support HRC this time. She hasn’t reached out either. I’ve sent a couple of emails, but have had no response. It’s a bad feeling to think that I cannot step off the reservation without separating myself from the ones I love most. They do not know how I voted, except that I said I would not vote for HRC.
        While I am pleased she lost, I am sad at the personal costs. I hope this will blow over. Soon.

          Shucks, I look forward to my CA relative showing up for Christmas! I’m kind of disappointed they won’t be here for Thanksgiving, but they never come for Thanksgiving, only Christmas.
          We draw names, but I’m feeling generous this year. I might each of them something special, like a Hillary for Prison shirt or some Trump gear.
          You guys are a lot nicer than me. I plan to show no mercy, none. I’ve listened to sit for decades. For decades they’ve shown up, been condescending and sneering in true vile prog fashion. My own sister, a southerner by birth has sneered and made fun of southerners and specifically the town I live in. There will be no quarter given, no mercy. This has been building for years and I don’t plan to hold back, fuck em. I’m the black sheep anyway, so baaa baaa black sheep!

        • taw46 says:

          Wow, you have it worse than me! Three of them, damn. My sister never asked me who I was voting for. If she had, I would have told her. But she knows. We had a discussion about Hillary many months ago, and I reminded her why NEITHER one of us liked the Dems back in 2008. And why I would not, ever vote Hillary.

          • lateblum says:

            I didn’t mean it to seem like a competition. I hope that wasn’t what it sounded like. I am sorry that you and your sis aren’t able to get beyond this right now. But if you were close in the past, I hope that means you’ll be right as rain again soon. ❤

          • taw46 says:

            Leslie, I did not mean it that way at all. I genuinely feel bad for you, because it hurts me enough having to deal with one sibling. I can’t imagine having to deal with three. Sorry I wasn’t clear about it. ❤

        • kanaughty says:

          I love your comment of “my sister who called me a racist for supporting HRC is now calling me a racist for not supporting her” omg, it’s so true the irony. I kept telling hillary supporters this time around without specifically coming out for trump, trump wasn’t a racist, sexist, bigot, xenophobe until the msm told you he was when he started running for president. His cast on the apprentice itself ws always. Very diverse and he usually favored the harder work ethic of the women teams. And he loved omarisa so much on regular apprentice, he brought her back for celebrity apprentice. There is so much hypocrisy with what is going on right now that it’s driving me crazy.

      Are you kidding? They also don’t believe it was Nixon who tried to push the ERA through after JFK killed it. All they know is “Democrats good. Republicans bad.”

      • kanaughty says:

        They also don’t realize that kennedy would probably be considered a republican now and not a dem. And nixon passed a lot of progressive stuff. And also for how wonderful fdr was in winning a war, he has been the worst on american civil liberties by locking up thousands of american citizens in camps. Dems can be so bad at following our constitution.

    The world has gone mad its insane. How do these people cope day to day. My mom is with my dad at small hospital. She said people are crying suicide. Certain people always cry suicide. Always seems to happen when it turns cold. Hmmm? They never do it. They are out of drug money. Three hots and a cot. I feel like I am becoming so cold. When I was a kid I stumbled down that path. I was very homophobic against myself. Obliviously I was historic in my suicide attempts. Zero tolerance for manipulation. I get it if you are sick or suffer from real depression. Trump winning does not count. ER people have to deal with real issues not upset children.

    Are the Dims determined to destroy their party? Do they have a death wish? Or do they just want to be irrelevant for the next several decades?

    http://www.latimes.com/nation/politics/trailguide/la-na-updates-trail-guide-is-a-muslim-from-the-midwest-set-to-1478901281-htmlstory.html

    He’s a Muslim from the heartland and he could be the next chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

    Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota is slowly raking up support from some key figures within the party, such as Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and New York Sen. Charles Schumer, who want him to be the next leader, following the party’s humbling presidential loss earlier this week.

    Citing more than 250,000 signatures in support of Ellison on a petition posted to his website, Sanders said the congressman is the future of the party.

    “The Democratic Party needs to look itself in the mirror and work tirelessly to become once again the party that working people know will work for their interests,” Sanders, who amassed a youthful, liberal following during the Democratic primary, said in a statement. “Keith is one of the most progressive members of Congress, and he was an early supporter of our political revolution.”

    • NBD says:

      Considering how poorly the Clintonite establishment did, I can see why the party might welcome a Bernie Bro like Ellison. OTOH, putting a Socialist Jew and a Black Muslim at the top of the party is not going to do much to win over white working class voters.

      • swanspirit says:

        All of the Bernouts who think Bernie would have beaten Trump are delusional too. 1/3 of the country doesn’t even know who he is. The disenfranchised Dim women would not have supported him, and the white working class , and plenty black and Hispanics too, would never have voted for him.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Where are the new generation Pumas ? The Dems definitely need a shot of reality. Having the sads in 2008, I jumped at the chance to fix the party from within, until I was told to GFM for not falling in lockstep behind Bammy. So McCain/Palin it was!

    • kanaughty says:

      God! They just don’t get it. They keep playing identity politics when people just want jobs and to keep their freedoms because they love america. They need to stop pandering. We can see through it. If they pick him, i surely would never switch back to dems even if the repubs suck in the next 2 to 4 years. I will stay an indy. I am not buying what these idiot dems are selling.

        I was a lit major it always confounded how people read stuff. Elizabeth Banks went to U Penn. She and Jennifer Lawrence both starred in The Hunger Games. Did they not watch their own movies? Its dystopian. Affluent capital. Districts pitted against each other using children. Dims keep power by creating conflict. They need riots. Trump got blacks and gays. Unheard of for a rethug. I thought after 11/8 things would fade. It seems worse each day. I feel lost. Portland???????

    Calling all tweeters. Clint Eastwood sent out a tweet thanking America for electing Trump and was promptly suspended.
    Time to start #freeClintEastwood

    The fimed beatings of Trump supporters? Do they not see they look disgusting. The riots. More police shot. I am getting angry anew.
