At 6:22 AM on Thursday (with a possible replay later in the show), we'll speak with Colorado Senator Cory Gardner about his meeting Wednesday with Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch.
The Ross Report:
It was predictable that when Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton to become president of the United States, the left would be emotionally devastated. Millennials cried; Snowflakes melted (note: linked video has some bad language); senators boycotted; women wore sillly hats. And somehow we’re supposed to take them seriously.
Current Democratic desperation and willingness to do absolutely anything to stop everything Donald Trump wants to do is the best possible strategy – for Republicans.
Just a few examples from the last 48 hours or so of the derangement currently afflicting the American left:
Chuck Schumer says, without a shred of evidence, that Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch will not push back on possible unconstitutional acts of the Trump administration. Who’s buying that?
LGBT groups similarly are talking about how worried they are about Mr. Trump after the administration announced that an executive order issued by Barack Obama protecting LGBT folks from discrimination will stay in place. Their logic? That Trump is working on a secret plan to hurt them. Presumably what they mean by that is the president’s support for religious freedom.
And the best reaction of all to the election of 2016: On Wednesday, inmates at a maximum-security prison in Delaware took several guards hostage before announcing that one of their motivations was the election of Donald Trump.
Here’s why I think this is such an enormous mistake for the Democrats: Their reaction to Donald Trump has me, a guy who thought I would just barely tolerate him as president, cheering for him almost every day since he was inaugurated.
The Democrats’ strategy reminds me of a meal in my favorite children’s book, "The Phantom Tollbooth", called Subtraction Stew: the more of it you eat, the hungrier you get. If the Democrats keep feasting on their anger and bitterness, politically speaking they’ll starve to death.
