FINALLY!!  Somebody gets it!

Instead of playing the victim and throwing an uncontrollable fit, Democrats need to do some deep soul searching to understand why they were unanimously rejected by voters, 3 elections in a row.

Delaware Democratic Sen. Chris Coons said Thursday during an interview on CNN that the Democratic Party should “spend more time” listening to voters who supported President Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012 and then voted for President-elect Donald Trump in 2016.

Host Jake Tapper noted that Vice President Joe Biden recently said that the Democratic Party hasn’t respected the concerns of working-class Americans.

“These are good people, man! These aren’t racists, these aren’t sexists,” Biden said.

Tapper asked Coons for his thoughts on Biden’s remarks. He said the vice president “has a real point here.”

“There’s millions of Americans who voted for Donald Trump not because they’re racists not because they’re so-called ‘deplorables,’ but because they wanted change,” Coons said.

“They’re frustrated,” he added. “They feel like they haven’t gotten the benefit out of the significant increase in productivity and wealth in this country in recent years. And they see the economy and this country moving past them, and they wonder who is going to stand up and fight for them.”

Of course it was all about change. That's the same thing that happened with Brexit.
Shows how desperate people felt about being listened to.

There are some really interesting videos of Bernie Saunders talking to people who voted Trump.   The real stunner is that many of them said they would have voted for him, they just didn't want the establishment.   What they have ended up with is the establishment in spades.

Exactly, and that's an opportunity missed, Sanders would of delivered a completely different set of outcomes, that would of had massive positive effects around the globe, however Clintons team cheated him out of this.

Obama has just told a news conference that the Russians have NOT been hacking government sources since September, which again contradicts Clinton who recently blamed her loss on the Russians.

Either way, until the democrats wake up and smell the coffee they'll just whine on in meaningless drivel.

Obama today told the press that Russia did hack into the US election apparatus, and can expect retaliation.
