I really don't understand why democrats continue to fall for Trump's con game, over and over again.

Rather that saying ... "please proceed" as President Obama would do

Democrats in Washington jump right in and take the bait of Trump's empty threats such as closing down the border or dumping detained immigrants in sanctuary cities, as if there is even a remote chance he would do it.

Why not call him out on it, and treat him like the feckless clown that he is,

Dare him to do it and force the Republicans to act like his parents.

1. Knife to a gun fight.

I think it's because we believe in the rule of law.

Karma and history would indicate that we will prevail...eventually...

2. But why even entertain his nonsense? It's all manufactured drama

It's one thing to devote resources going after actual events such as his fabricated emergency order, or any executive orders he signs, but it's absolutely pointless to even acknowledge his twitter drama, he is just trolling for his base, all he's looking to do is get Democrats worked up.

4. Apologize for sounding like a broken record here...

But I discovered UC Berkley law prof Teri Kanefield on twitter, who, along with Yale Law Prof. Tim Snyder. is discussing the theory of sadopopulism that they believe underlies this trump bullshit.

3. It's as if they don't believe that Trumpy is REALLY a pathological liar.

"He can't be! Really he can't!"

So it seems that they pretend that Trumpy must be considered truthful with every tweet, every phrase, until it's found that he lies. What a surprise! Every time! Oh! How disappointing. He lied again!

Aren't we ready to assume that Trumpy lies about everything, and that the true anomaly would be if he tells the truth?

One of those within his personal circle said recently that Trumpy lies because "it's fun." Isn't that a welcome relief! At first, I thought it would be hard work and a daily commitment.

9. I'm disagreeing with the premise that all Democrat's fall for tRumpy's bullshit.

I put Elizabeth in that same category. How is that not a proper response to the OP??

10. Maybe you could explain, here or in Primary forum, how Sanders' view of immigration

from the South has changed since 2016 when he clearly supported the American First views of many who voted for the other side.

6. Play the long game.

Everyone of Trump's violations of the Rules of Law and Norm's of Governance is reinforcing our Democratic Party one hell of a Landslide in November 2020.

Today is a prefect example,news media has a story of Trump telling a Federal Employee to violate the law and Trump will Pardon Him. And they sit on it till the Congress goes into Recess before breaking it.

The Ball is now in Mitch McConnell's Court,oh,and btw,Lindsey Grahams as well.

Watch for the Spin Mister's at Murdoch TV work this one.

8. It works so much better when Republicans are forced to attack Trump instead of Democrats doing it

11. BTW,

Raw Story posted the Story about the House Office Custodial Staff being harassed and threatened under Paulie Ryan's Tenure. Reed the Story and it will piss you off to no end. So is this the 57 cases that did not see the light?
