So…How's The Resistance?

Jun 19, 2017

After the inauguration of President Donald Trump, many Democrats adopted a new mantra: “Resist.” The word appeared on signs waved in massive marches in cities across the country, Greenpeace put it on a giant banner outside the White House, Congressional phone lines were jammed with those carrying the message and thousands of people put #Resist in their social media profiles.

But then the president’s cabinet was confirmed. Neal Gorsuch was seated on the Supreme Court. A Democratic candidate lost a special election in Montana, and Jon Ossoff, the Democratic hopeful in Georgia is moving toward the center.

Five months after the fanfare, how is #Resist working out?
