For the past two months, Democratic leaders have been reportedly discussing ways to approach the presidency of Donald Trump and have largely landed on a conclusion: fight him at every turn in a ‘not-now-not-ever’ opposition.

Politico reported that it conducted interviews with about two dozen Democrats in office who were willing to discuss the internal debate.

It apparently did not take very long for these politicans to determine that a working relationship with Trump was not possible, though Washington Gov. Jay Inslee told the magazine that there was a “grace period.”

Sen. Kirsten GIllibrand, D-N.Y., is credited so far with voting the most against Trump, voting against three of four Trump Cabinet-level picks.

Dozens of House Democrats boycotted Trump’s inauguration, highlighted by Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., who questioned the legitimacy of Trump’s election win.

Of course, there are drawbacks about being the opposition party and some interviewed have concerns that 10 Democratic senators are up for reelection in 2018 who work in states that Trump won.

That is a very good name for them.. Obstructocrats.

The left seems to be having a giant, multi-faceted tantrum. Everything they are doing says "I'm gonna have my way.."

Good thing that President Trump doesn't need them. What was it Obama said to the republicans ? Sit down and be quiet!
