|Tom Perez became the Democratic National Committee chairman. He quickly appointed Congressman Keith Ellison of Minnesota as the deputy chairman.|
On Saturday, former Labor secretary Tom Perez eked out a win against Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN). Ellison for Democratic National Committee chairman.
Perez. the first Latino chairman of the Democratic Party urges for party unity and vows to push for a strong progressive agenda.
Ellison an African American lawmaker who is a Sunni Muslim warned Democrats to tap into the populism that gave Republicans the victory or continue to lose.
Perez heeded the call and asked for Ellison to become his vice-chair. He calls upon Ellison, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and others to help win back the middle class, people of color, the millennials and the women.
The Democrats are still reeling over the epic loss to the controversial Donald J. Trump. He and the Republicans swept fiercely into power and are trying to undo President Barack Obama's legacy.
Now as the fuhrer of the country, Trump is finding it harder to accomplish the goals he promised on the campaign trail. Although, he will continue to push his proposals to Congress, the lawmakers will continue to keep Washington stuck in gridlock.
Republicans are warning Democrats to get in line or face the consequences. Democrats balked at them and told them, "fuck off".
The Democratic National Committee is still facing a scandal within its ranks.
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) was ousted after Wikileaks published emails between her and top Democrats disparaging Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). They also wanted a limited amount of debates to ease the path for Hillary Clinton.
The Democrats were splinted when the so-called Bernie Bros. decided to gamble on Green Party Jill Stein and Trump.
The electoral college helped Trump. He failed at winning the popular vote. So he's finding it difficult to deal with constituents given that Clinton won the popular vote instead of him.
Trump's stump through the Midwest and Florida crumbled the Blue Wall that Obama placed upon his two successful elections. Clinton let Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida, Iowa, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, and New Hampshire go Republican by being overly confident. Other issues that came forth includes Russia meddling in the election,and the onslaught of Republican accusations against her and Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA).
Now in private life, Clinton is hailing this as the beginning of a "new movement" in the works.
Republican lawmakers are facing constituents who are now concerned that the "repeal and replace" rhetoric is "smoke and mirrors."
Republicans are still trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare). But they can't figure out a suitable solution to fix the law without tearing apart policies that the public support.
Democrats are still fearful of being labeled "liberal". Hell embrace your beliefs and fuck the nonsense.
Because if you continue to support a billionaire who is willing to put us back into war, cut the safety net, ban individuals based on race, gender, sexuality, religion, economic and social standings, then support the conservative/White extremist movement.
