I'm honestly terrified about the direction the country is heading in. And the Democrats are being complete idiots about it. Boycotting the inauguration? That just sounds like a petulant child crying, "Waaaah waaah waaah, I'm pissed off, I'm gonna go to my room and slam the door!" If the Dems really want to make a statement, they should go to the inauguration, show some gumption, and fight! Be a thorn in the side of the Trump administration to obstruct their policies that basically massage them while gut-punching us, the common people.
You know, I was with you up until this point Dincrest. But I'm genuinely confused about what you think going to the inauguration accomplishes. You say this as if boycotting it is somehow incompatible with showing some gumption and fighting. Which is obviously silly. Why can't they do both?
There actually are
a number of Democrats being quite critical of Trump's appointments during the confirmation hearings. Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Al Franken, heck even Chuck Schumer. They're asking good questions that deserve good answers (though often they're not getting them). But there isn't much they actually can
do when the Republicans have the votes to rubber stamp all appointments and don't seem interested in listening to criticism.
Basically, anyone who doesn't like the current situation and didn't vote: Please kick yourself now.
