The Democrats -and especially the Democrat media- are still roaring in pain over Donald Trump’s victory and the GOP’s control of congress and most of the state governments. They still haven’t come to grips with what happened and especially, why.
The latest meme for a lot of them is plotting what they refer to as ‘new strategies for covering Trump’ (read ‘defeating and marginalizing Trump’) as if this were a tactical problem rather than a transformational change in the making. They’re all about, you know, fighting back by any means necessary. Who gives a rip what those stupid hillbillys in flyover country voted for? We’re the elites, we know best and this is how we will teach them what to think!

Cute lil’ article..’Here’s how you tame that wild,alpha male chimpanzee.’ I have to wonder how you would have felt and what you would have written if someone referred to Barack Obama like that.
