It's an insinuation that Democrats are cowards. Yet another not-so-subtle and aggressive smear of our party, our elected representatives, and Democratic leadership. The phrase "big money interests" serves to convey the insinuation that Democrats are corrupt or "bought and paid-for" ... which is not true.

This is just a continuation of the ongoing smears and attacks against Democrats that we've been hearing for years. Fact of the matter is that Democrats are NOT cowards. Democrats are NOT corrupt. Democrats are NOT the "party of the one-percent". Democrats are NOT "coastal-elites". Democrats are NOT ideologically bankrupt. Democrats are NOT "do-nothings". Democrats are NOT and "absolute failure". Democrats are NOT "feeble".

All I'm trying to say is that these types of smears and attacks do NOTHING to unify and strengthen the Democratic party. Instead when people say things like that, it divides us and weakens us. It creates resentment, distrust and suspicion. Ultimately, that ONLY has the effect of benefiting Trump's GOP (and Russia).

What good purpose does that serve? I think that loyal Democrats and reasonable people everywhere can all agree that doing (and saying) things like this is harmful and destructive.
