Why Targeting Corporate Democrats Is Part of the Fight Against Trump

Mark Engler

On November 14, six days after the election of Donald Trump, some 40 young people walked into the office of New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, calling on the senior lawmaker to step aside in his bid to be Senate minority leader. Carrying a banner that read “Wall St. Democrats Failed Us,” they argued that Schumer, who has received more than $3 million in campaign contributions from the securities and investment industry in the last five years, was exactly the wrong figure to lead the opposition to Donald Trump.

LOL! No comments yet, eh? Heaven forbid we should critique any Dems in this time of Trump!

Gee, maybe folks have figured out that "fixing" the DNC won't be quite enough - maybe the House (and Senate) cleaning will have to be more thorough - maybe they will figure out that "prog" Dems ain't gonna fix it - after all Sanders seems quite OK with Schumer and, as "Chair of Outreach" for the DP, you can expect he will whitewash, or distract from, whatever crap the DP Inc. folks produce behind closed doors ....

"Of course, many progressives were hardly satisfied with President Obama’s handling of foreign policy once he was elected.": But they did not turn out to oppose him. Too bad. Con man Trump has skillfully utilized even the anti-war sentiments against Hillary.
