Just now, on Fox News, there was Kellyanne Conway slandering Democrats. Before that , on MSNBC there was Matt Gaetz doing the same thing. During the Mueller hearing the Republicans did everything they could to slander an American patriot, with a life time of service to this country. His major infraction? He investigated Russian interference in our elections. And that makes Trump look bad. Speaking of which : Look at the leader of the Republican party. Trump. The most divisive, obnoxious man to ever hold the office. A man, who has signaled the upcoming election cycle will be the ugliest election cycle in modern times. Mostly made so by appealing to racial and religious resentments.

Democrats, on the other hand, just held a press conference to celebrate 200 days with the majority in the House. On their agenda are policies they say focus "on the people". They pledge to "own August" with an agenda that's "too hot to handle". https://www.c-span.org/video/?463018-1/speaker-pelosi-house-democrats-review-200-days-majority...first thing you notice is how diverse the Democrat caucus is. The second thing you notice is how they're all smiling. The third? Nancy Pelosi, with a positive message about how "the most dynamic and diverse" House in American history took the oath of office. They promised to lower healthcare cost, protect preexisting conditions, raised the federal minimum wage, clean up corruption, passed key investments in infrastructure, etc, etc, etc. And they have kept their promise.

Made me proud to be an American. And especially an American that supports a progressive agenda focused "on the people" , as oppose to an agenda focused on one man.

Yall, play nice now.

Isn’t it usually the left out there protesting election results they don’t like?

I think democrats and “progressives” like to PRETEND they don’t spew a hate filled message. But they do.

uh, didn't Trump appoint an election commission for the expressed purpose of challenging the election results? Isn't Trump so obnoxious that even his supporters say they wish he'd knock it off? Don't Republican's support locking kids up in cages, the death penalty, racial animus , religious bigotry - and Trump before country?

Rump has done so much to divide this nation. I cannot see it surviving a second term from "it" .
He sure is outing the marxists. We'll survive just fine, and many of us will prosper. A thriving economy always works for the intelligent and ambitious. Liberals, not so much.

Yes, projection, hate and identity is all the dems have left.
