OMalley tells Dems not to fear Trump.

'Former Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley is urging Democrats not to be afraid of President Trump.

"Donald Trump is a self-basting turkey," said O’Malley, who recently launched a new PAC focused on helping Democrats win state and local races. "A lot of people who voted for him are embarrassed about his behavior."

In a recent interview with The Hill, O’Malley explained why he believes his new PAC can yield big results for his party — and why Trump doesn’t represent the future of the United States.

Pointing to a Democratic sweep in local elections last month, the former Maryland governor said his party’s economic message is steering the country back on course after Hillary Clinton’s loss to Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

"I was elated, but not surprised by New Jersey and Virginia," O’Malley said, referring to two of the states in which Democrats saw major victories in November.'>>>

2. Unfortunately racism is a proven political winner

Johnson said Dems would lose the south for a generation after the civil rights act passed. It’s longer than a generation. Trump had horrible approval ratings Nov 8 but still won. I’m not sure his ratings are worse now than they were then. I think Republicans did extremely well in Trump districts in the recent Virginia election. We must vote in greater numbers. Relying on the evil ones to abandon Trump doesn’t seem all that likely to me. I see no evidence he is self-basting.

But hopefully O’Malley is smarter than I am about the possible shame of Trump voters.
