1/13/17 - Democrats denied tickets for Trump inauguration festivities

Petty abusive asshole from the start.

Lest we forget.

House Democrats say they are having trouble getting tickets to inaugural festivities for President-elect Donald Trump, leading some to openly speculate it might be a sign of rancorous partisanship to come.

...


Fuller sent an email to the listserv Thursday night saying her liaison at the Presidential Inaugural Committee confirmed rumors that Republicans were automatically given tickets to the parade and ball while Democratic offices were expected to request those tickets and even then, there was no guarantee they’d get to attend.

The Presidential Inaugural Committee held a ticket distribution event at Republican National Committee headquarters earlier this week for all GOP offices to pick up member tickets to the welcome concert, parade and ball, according to a inaugural committee email obtained by POLITICO.

“Not only is it unfair but it deepens the chasm between our parties and confirms that we will not be considered,” Fuller said in her note to other schedulers.

2. Remember when rancorous partisanship was only a possibility?

And how long it took for the popular media to recognize it?

3. This is on par for them. Why would anyone think they would be any different?

McConnell has made it clear that he has ZERO intentions of working w ANY democrat. He is going to do what HE is going to do. This is NOT politics as usual. It hasn't been for the last 12 YEARS. People on the left just don't seem to want to accept it. The rules of engagement have changed. And we need to get with it and start winning offices so that we can start enacting OUR agenda: universal health care, flat tax, universal income, free college education, get rid of citizen's united, clean up the media, reform law enforcement, etc. No more "working with" the right. Work our asses off to get the vote out. Undo the gerrymandering and voter suppression. We need to push our progressive policies once we get majority. Screw the GOP.
