Democrats gettin' themselves all up-'n-diveed.

During his brilliant SOTU speech, President Trump discovered, possibly by accident, how incendiary the term "socialism" can be, evidently creating a serious rift in the party -- one that will likely grow until it dissolves the party, which will then get replaced by the liberal wing of the GOP, as has happened already in the political history in the US.

Trump’s "warning of creeping socialism in the United States, deftly mentioned after a section of the speech on the unfolding political crisis in Venezuela, created an immediate public split among Democrats that was caught on live television."

"Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) and Sens. Debbie Stabenow (Mich.), Joe Manchin (W.Va.), Jon Tester (Mont.) and Sherrod Brown (Ohio) were among the lawmakers who stood with Republicans to applaud Trump when he pledged that the United States would never slide into socialism."

Well, part of the knee-buckling was because Schumer is a snake.

But anyway, during Trump's speech, Ocasio-Cortez was among the radical left core that snubbed Trump by not standing to applaud his remarks. Bernie Sanders and Cory Booker also apparently felt they were being unfairly forced to remain in their seats. Ocasio-Cortez explained that Trump was trying to 'put them on the spot', which is against Democrat Party Whiney Rules.

"I think he’s scared," Ocasio-Cortex speculated to HuffPo. “I think it was great!"

But be that as it may, it's important to note that differing reactions by Democrats are thought to expose a growing rift within the Democratic Party, even as Progressive policies are "on the rise" within it, and Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez being the notable alignment. "Both candidates favor a single payer health care system that would provide 'Medicare for all,' free college tuition and much higher marginal tax rates on the wealthy."

However, these are also policies that make the Capitol's overflowing piss pot of liberals ready to jump the pot (because the heat) into the fire.

“I want proposals that work for people," MT Senator Jon Tester said (in defiance of the fact that no such proposals exist).

"I think it’s important to have people have skin in the game in health care so it isn’t all utilized. I think it’s important that people have skin in the game when they go to college,” Tester said.

And "Coo-coo for Coco-Puffs!"

By the way, all those Democratic women who wore white for symbolic reasons? What was the symbolism?
1 to express unity with snowflakes,
2 to honor Agnes, patron saint of virgins.

1. Apparently you missed the reason the women at the SOTU were wearing white

The "symbolism" was to commemorate the suffrage movement, which worked toward getting women the vote.

2. I didn't miss it.

I just forgot what it was. Too "cerebral".

But among viewers of that SOTU addresss, my post will stand as valid far longer than their ridiculous, pretentious intellectualizations and stupidly inaccurate symbolism.

At the end of the day, white stands for virginity. To which one of them do they refer? LOL!

They have shot themselves in the foot, and I think it's hilarious. LOL>

3. I noticed the women in white did not stand up when the President discussed his plan

to eradicate human trafficking of women and children.

Nor did they stand up when he mentioned plans to stop 3rd trimester abortions.

Killing a baby that can many times survive outside the womb is murder.

4. These women in white are deplorable.

Every one of those women in white are liars. Every one of them makes light of symbolism and lowers the "concept" of purity to the base level of skank. Every one of them thumbs their nose at this country, at their positions and at public service. They are a rotten joke, and I hope they get kicked to the curb before they drag everyone to hell with them.
