The Democrats are in trouble. There are different factions in the Democrat Party and they, at least from the outside, appear to be splintering.
On Saturday, Minnesota Rep. Rashida Tlaib accused party leadership of racism, saying they basically use them as props but never really listen to them.
They put us in photos when they want to show our party is diverse. However, when we ask to be at the table, or speak up about issues that impact who we are, what we fight for & why we ran in the first place, we are ignored. To truly honor our diversity is to never silence us. https://t.co/7T1OlwS1YG

Well, now Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is the one tasked with unifying both parts of the party: the moderates and the progressives. But her comments on ’60 Minutes’ probably aren’t going to help in her task.
Can the Speaker of the House unify the Democratic party while getting pushback from the left and self-described democratic socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? https://t.co/f4VUYTYIdw pic.twitter.com/a9wOobPj5g

If nothing else, the implosion of the Democrat Party should be fun to watch.
