8) Tell your celebrity fans to shut the **** up. The constant smug, superior, belittling rhetoric that pours out from famous liberals on social media is utterly self-defeating. I know it makes you all feel good when halfwits like Madonna or quarterwits like Chrissy Tiegen tear into Trump on Twitter. But it just serves to remind everyone the Democrats are the party for wealthy, privileged stars who haven’t got a monkey’s cuss how the real world lives or works. Trump is despised by most celebrities, yet adored by tens of millions of working class Americans. And he’s living at the White House. Do the math.
9) Do deals with the Republicans. Yes, I’m serious. Americans are sick and tired of intransigent Washington politicians obstructing each other. So do the right thing and work with Trump and his team on big, important stuff like healthcare - for the good of the country. I know it will make you puke, but that’s the price you pay for losing. The upside is the American people will see a Democrat Party putting them before itself, and that, I guarantee you, will improve your popularity.
10)Learn to win again. Anywhere. And do it on any agenda other than Trump-bashing. Winning is a habit and the Democrats need to pour resources and the right people into doing it again. ‘I don’t like losers,’ Trump said in his book Art of the Deal. Then he elaborated: ‘There are people - I categorize them as life’s losers - who get their sense of accomplishment and achievement from trying to stop others. If they had any real ability they wouldn’t be fighting me, they’d be doing something constructive themselves.’ He’s right. Though I suspect if I asked him his view of losers today, he’d reply that in the case of the Democrats he’d amend it to read: ‘I don’t like these losers, I LOVE them!’
