Democrats are now “moping” at the cocktail parties with the donors. Trump apparently has made their life, during his first two years as president, a living hell as “civilization is collapsing” around them.
Former President Obama gave remarks at a posh Democrat fundraiser last week. He issued a call to arms to the Democrats crying themselves to sleep every night, “If you are one of these folks who is watching cable news at your cocktail parties with your friends and you are saying ‘civilization is collapsing’ and you are nervous and worried, but that is not where you are putting all your time, energy and money, then either you don’t actually think civilization is collapsing … or you are not pushing yourself hard enough and I would push harder.”
“Enough moping, this is a mope-free zone.”
Obama then admitted that his one regret from his presidency was that people focused too much on him while he was in office and not on winning races across the country.
“I’ll be honest with you,” Obama said, “If I have a regret during my presidency, it is that people were so focused on me and the battles we were having, particularly after we lost the House, that folks stopped paying attention up and down the ballot.”
In the introduction for Obama, DNC chairperson called him the “real president of the United States.”
Obama ended remarks with a warning to his other Democrats, asking them to stop stressing and moping and get out to do something that inspires people instead of being the violent thugs they have been showing themselves to be for the last two years:
“All these people that are out here kvetching and wringing their hands and stressed and anxious and constantly watching cable TV and howling at the moon, ‘What are we going to do?,’ their hair’s falling out, they can’t sleep. The majority of the American people prefer a story of hope. A majority of the American people prefer a country that comes together rather than being divided. The majority of the country doesn’t want to see a dog-eat-dog world where everybody is angry all the time.”
