    Why are Senate Democrats rolling over for Trump?

    Senate Democrats are acting like a bunch of spineless jellyfish.

    Stories to watch: The search for new Democratic leadership

    ... What about the next generation of Democrats? Beltway pundits are already busying themselves with lists of 2020 hopefuls. The same names keep popping up in every outlet: new California Sen. Kamala Harris, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar. All of these pols are still so unfamiliar, however, that it’s hard to imagine them commanding the same sort of national attention as Trump — or wanting to ...

    Democratic National Committee Asks a Question on Twitter, Immediately Regrets It
    If you don't have a good idea what the answer you'll get might be, think twice about asking a question on social media

    ... the DNC wrote this: " We want to know what YOU want the future of our party to look like and what you want from our next Chair. Tell us:".

    Lawyers have a saying: Never ask a question in a courtroom for which you don't already have the answer, surprises can be nasty; the ones the DNC received were so bad, the paint must be peeling off the organization's walls, here are some examples -- and although the answers are political in nature, because this is a forum about business, the point is to show just how deep you can sink in little time ...

    Schumer breaks down in tears while denouncing Trump’s travel ban

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer broke down in tears on Sunday as he announced that Democrats are considering legislation to overturn President Trump’s controversial executive order temporarily banning immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

    “This executive order was mean-spirited and un-American,” Schumer said at a press conference in New York City, where he was surrounded by families affected by the ban; “it was implemented in a way that created chaos and confusion across the country, and it will only serve to embolden and inspire those around the globe who will do us harm” ...
