The panel on MSNBC’s Morning Joe bashed the Democratic Party for its inability to come to grips with the fact that they are deep in the minority of the House and in the minority of the Senate.
On Monday evening, Democratic leadership held a rally outside the Supreme Court to protest President Trump’s action to restrict people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.
MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski said of the rally, “I didn’t feel like this was where we needed to be.”
“I don’t think Democrats have come to grips with the fact that they are in the extremely deep minority in the House, the minority in the Senate. They are operating by an old playbook, which is kind of, at this point, becoming frayed and tattered,” Politico’s Jake Sherman told Brzezinski. “This party has not really moved on from 2006. I can’t tell you how many Democrats that I talk to on Capitol Hill want change and want it now in the leadership on Capitol Hill.”
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough chimed in, “they have to figure out how to get out of the old mode and start speaking to some of these communities.”
“I watched that, I just feel they are overreaching,” Brzezinski said, referring to the Democratic leadership rally.
“They are not where the base is,” former DNC Chair Howard Dean said of the Democratic Party.
Dean pointed out another problem the party faces is the need for a whole new generation to come up to run for political office.
