Video of the day -- pressure works


Rachel Maddow documents how Trump and his gang have repeatedly backed down in the face of pressure from Congress or the public.  Let these examples embolden us to make that pressure irresistible when the big fights -- over Obamacare, Social Security, voting rights, and other key bastions of progress -- are waged.  Video found via Politics Plus.

Pressure does work. A lot of what Trump wants to do requires the help of congress. We, the people, need to let our representatives know that their jobs are on the line.

Do Trump's bidding, and be voted out!

Watch Spicer reply to a question and then tell America why it would be misguided and wrong NOT to handcuff a five-year old.

Keep the pressure up and watch them under that pressure reveal what they are.

I think that what they are has already been revealed. The scary part is that the GOP sits silently by. Pressure does work, but usually only with Dems. The Rethugs are arrogant enough to declare that Bannon's Baby has a mandate, because he got more electoral votes. Reporters never seem to point out that he lost the popular vote by a shit-ton, and polls show that much of what he proposes is extremely unpopular. We saw the same thing happen with Cheney's Baby, and popular opinion didn't mean shit to them.

Sorry to be all doom and gloom, but the last 10 days has given me an unrelenting case of heartburn.

Jerry: And people have been doing that, too. Check out the Facebook post shown here.

Shaw: The only thing more disgusting than when they lie is when they tell the truth about how they think.

Nonnie: Did you watch the video, though? Pressure has worked to make Trump back down several times, in less than two weeks.
