What would Democrats do?

I've read many columns and heard many opinions on what republicans would do if Obama had done the things that Trump has done. I say we try a different standard for such an argument. The question should be what Democrats would have done if Obama had done the things Trump has done. I think the answer is that they would not have stood by twiddling their thumbs making excuses for it and would have done something to stop him from his wayward behavior.

...which was tame by comparison to anything Trump does or says on any given day.

Then again I'm torn because for every thing that has happened since say 2000 that makes me believe that many in our party are even more cowardly and show less pushback or strength in the face of even the smallest bits of political adversity, I also see a lot of things that lead me to believe that we have a large enough faction in our midst who are just as tribal and just as susceptible to the cult of personality, just for folks with D's after their names.
