49. How would you characterize it when someone refers to Democrats as "Coastal Elites"...

How would you characterize it when someone refers to Democrats as "Coastal Elites". Is it "pushing hard" to say that Democrats are "ideologically bankrupt".

Explain to me how it's being a "team player" to characterize Democrats as being "feeble"... or to say that Democrats are "corrupt".

Do you have any opinions (one way or the other) when someone says that the Democratic party is an "absolute failure"... or that the Democratic party is "the party of the one-percent"... or that the Democratic party is the "party of the elite".

Is it "team player" behavior to repeatedly declare that there's "no difference between Democrats and Republicans" ... or to say that Democrats are "do-nothings" and that the Democratic party "doesn't care about climate change."

He brings a large voting block to the table
No, that's wrong. That type of negativity and cynicism generates apathy. The lies and smears create a hostile and negative atmosphere of apathy that discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.

It serves no good purpose. No matter how many sprinkles are added as decoration it's shitty for anyone to continually smear the Democratic party and Democratic leadership in that way.
