It’s like liberals are going through the five stages of grief in coping with Donald Trump’s victory. There was denial (in the form of the recount 2016 campaign), anger (protests), bargaining (trying to convince electors to change their votes), and we appear to now be in the depression phase. The acceptance stage comes after that…. but I imagine that could take a while.
After more electors ended up defecting from Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump, Michael Moore has one last trick up his sleeve to try to prevent Trump form entering the White House, and like most scams, it’s not far from being a ten-step program.
As the Smoke Room reported:
The director — who has been a vocal critic of the president-elect — outlined his plan in a lengthy post on his Facebook page Tuesday night, calling for millions to protest the inauguration.
“THE FIVE THINGS EACH OF US MUST DO THIS WEEK,” he titled it.
“Brush yourself off and let’s get busy because: a.) All hope is not lost; b.) There are more of us than there are of them; and c.) The roadside is littered with the ended careers of self-absorbed, narcissistic politicians whose arrogance led them to do things that caused their early resignation or impeachment,” Moore wrote. “Don’t think that can’t happen here.”
He continues “If he/she is a Republican, they will explain why they ‘support the new president,’” he said. “You then must politely tell them you and everyone you know will work to unseat them in 2018 if they don’t act independently from Trump.”
“If your rep is a Democrat, tell him/her you expect them to AGGRESSIVELY fight the Trump agenda – and if they don’t, you will work with others to support a true progressive in the Democratic primary in 2018.”
Yeah, that’s going to work alright. Republicans now hold the Presidency, House, Senate, majority of State Legislatures, and Governorships, and his strategy is to threaten the ability of Republicans to win elections? I don’t think that’s going to work out too well.
