7. He did it so the trigger would be the compromise - give up everything

And, then, make a huge major deal out of accepting a bullshit trigger as some type of 'compromise'. The dems then can pretend to act as if they fought for something....

It is disgusting and obvious.

I don't think the dems (with the few exceptions, we all know who they are) understand they are about to lose the people. If they think they will keep power by betraying their base (which happens to be the MAJORITY), they are sadly mistaken.

This is sickening.
