I agree with Jonathan Chait here; Dems should not cooperate in any way with trump’s illegitimate nominee to a stolen SCOTUS seat. If that means losing the filibuster, then so be it.
For that matter, I think the Dems should delay, obstruct, throw wrenchs in the gears of the Senate and the House, and vote no on everything trump and Republicans try to do until and unless the immoral and illegal Muslim ban is overturned. I have called my Reps to tell them so; have you?
And Shadow President Bannon makes it clear that he would love nothing more than all out war with Islam, and a white Christian nation. It’s unclear whether trump’s white evangelical base understands what Bannon’s Chrisitianity looks like, nor his neo-Nazi shock troops.
