Democrats' hypocrisy a bad example for world

The whole world is watching what is happening in the U.S. right now, and not all of the people are blaming Trump for it. They see how things are playing out, the relentless barrage of anti-Trumpism from the Democrats.

This is the tragic irony of the whole thing, how a party that prides itself on being peacemakers around the world, how are they going to be taken seriously the next time they are in charge, when they try to approach two sparring peoples, such as the Shiites and the Sunnis, to persuade them to bury the hatchet?

They're so fond of saying: "Stop fighting and start listening to one another, find areas where you all agree and build from there to build an amicable relationship." How are they going to be taken seriously? They'll be told: "Don't preach to us, you don't do it in your own country."

What I mean is taking unfair advantage of certain loopholes in our Constitution. I'm not sure loophole is the right word. Maybe "intangible nothings" would be a better way to describe it. The framers of the Constitution didn't write about all possible scenarios of how the meaning of certain points of the Constitution could be circumvented or ignored. The fighting was supposed to take place in the halls of Congress, not in the countryside.

The Founding Fathers' revolution took place in debate, not in mob action, in rioting and mayhem. What the Democrats are doing is use other means than debate.
