Many Democrats liberal activists are still grappling with the reality that President Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton — even though nearly five months have passed since the Nov. 8 election.
The American Civil Liberties Union held a Facebook Live telethon fundraiser Friday dubbed “Stand for Rights: A Benefit for the ACLU.” The event Friday was billed specifically to raise funds to challenge the president’s agenda. The star-studded event included actor Alec Baldwin, actress Amy Poehler, actor Tom Hanks, comedian Tina Fey and comedian Tracy Morgan. But it was the introduction of Chelsea Clinton that raised eyebrows.
“Donald Trump, you didn’t win this election.”
“Ladies and gentlemen — alternate universe current first daughter of the United States,” the announcer called out as the daughter of Trump’s former rival took the stage.
The same day depressed supporters of the ACLU bemoaned Clinton’s absence from the White House, the newly minted chairman of the Democratic National Committee was telling crowds Trump hadn’t won the election.
“Republicans don’t give a s**t about people,” DNC chair Tom Perez said at a rally hosted Friday by the New Jersey Working Families Alliance in Newark, New Jersey.
Perez praised members of the so-called “resistance” who have vowed to oppose Trump through protests.
“January 20th was undeniably an important day in this country, but January 21st was far more important,” Perez said of the “resistance” as the crowd cheered. “‘Donald Trump, you don’t stand for our values’ — that’s what they said. ‘Donald Trump, you didn’t win this election.'”
