From where? He has always been all over the map politically. The right has adopted him as one of their own, but he is still all over the place.

Democrats continue spending all their energy either infighting amongst themselves ( splitting votes on nominees) or being obstructionists. 2018 elections in red states will certainly reduce the number of 25 democratic senators of which 8 are in red states.

We need a poll on how many seats democrats will lose in 2018.

You STILL haven't figured out that history and politics are cyclical. If you think this is the beginning of fifty years of Republican rule, you're a fool.

And they have a FB page and a YouTube video promoting violence against those who don't think like them.

It has a very Brown Shirt/KKK vibe. Welcome to the Democrats new order.

You just proved my point.

This headline is that a student group was created. A student group. Do you realize that any idiot in a university can create whatever student group he wants? But this ends up on the news as "liberals create new violent anti-Trump group". As you even said, this is indicative of the Democrats new order.

You need to stop and think for yourself for a minute instead of blindly following what the internet tells you: do these people really speak for every liberal?

I do think they speak to the heart of every liberal. Libs had three major traumas. They lost their godling who could do or say no wrong. His anointed successor was roundly defeated by the Deplorables. Into the godling's golden aura stepped Trump, and you people hate this man with a passion. Just look at the comments here for the last year. Watch CNN for 30 minutes. Watch how the MSM continually bash the man. Go visit FB or Twitter.

Libs have worked themselves into a fury, and they don't just hate Trump, they despise everyone who voted for him. The Democratic leadership is a bunch of old farts and Democrats don't have a charismatic leader to rally around and I don't see any coming along. State governorships are excellent incubators for presidential candidates, but Democrats aren't doing so well there.

SJW's have led the Democrats down a political dead end and the leadership knows it. The base doesn’t, and they want to fight.

Right but fighting to them means marching and acting like spoiled children. Many of them are from the generation that grew up with participation trophies and never learned how to lose gracefully. They can't!
They demand they get what they want, simply because they want it.

No he wasn't.

He was supposed to do what he said during the campaign that he was going to do. So far he has.

His agenda was out there for everyone to see. And the more than 63 million people who voted for him did NOT vote for him to pivot anywhere.

You obviously didn't read how many people disliked Hillary. I don't know anyone personally who liked her or who even blindly follows Democrats. I don't know anyone who would disagree with you that most Democrats in power are basically useless old farts. This election above all cut the liberal=Democrat and conservative=Republican ties so I don't understand why people want to argue with me like I voted for Hillary (I didn't).

Trump deserves the hate. At this point there are 50X more reasons to dislike Trump than there were for Obama.

Democrats haven't stopped one nominee. What's their purpose?

It is absolutely mind boggling to me that the Trump Clan can't understand protests about a candidate who ran his entire campaign on shaking things up and pissing people off. If you can not understand why there would be push back I have to seriously question your intelligence.
