We in the Democratic Party are deluding ourselves by believing that any preponderance of evidence, reason or logic will have an affect on those who support President Trump. The fact is they just don't care.

They are willing to sacrifice decency, honor and our country to stay in power. They only believe in the rule of law if it protects them. Their only truths come from Fox News, and everything else is fake news.

We have become a laughingstock and a threat to our allies. Our president cozies up to the most wretched of leaders while disregarding and ridiculing our intelligence professionals.

This is why I believe we are wasting our time trying reach them. Our only hope is to rally our base and get new voters to the polls. If we fail, we run the risk of becoming the biggest banana republic in the world.
