Why are the Dems so Mad...at their own voters???
"I was watching the debate last night, and it occurred to me — I love all the Democratic nominees," Fox, 58, said Saturday before poking fun at Buttigieg's primary rival Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. "But they’re all yelling at me. And I’m sitting there going, ‘Why are you yelling at me, Bernie, what did I do to you?’"

I've been thinking the same thing... and maybe I have an answer:
Because they think it works.
Think about it... this unknown loose cannon named Trump came into office insulting every one of them! The more they complain about his insults, the more popular he gets. He calls people crazy names, makes mean tweets, says outrageous things, and yet he just keeps winning! So... if you can't beat him, emulate him!
The problem is they don't understand why it works for Trump. Trump isn't intentionally being mean, he's just being Trump... the same Donald Trump we have all grown up with. He says what he thinks, and counterpunches if anyone attacks him. It's not his style that is working, it's his policies. People put up with his tweets and his hyperbole and his insults because at the end of the day they are better off.
The far left has no policies that help people. All they have are agendas that promise to hurt people. I have known for some time that it is not the policies that they think matter; it's how they explain those policies. If they use the right words, they think that people will support whatever they want to do. Several in Congress have openly said as much. Now, their words aren't working, so they look to the guy who's winning to see what words he is using, and lo and behold, he is insulting people! Well, if it works for him, it must work for us too! Insult everyone! If Trump wants to win by insulting, by damnation, we'll out-insult him ten times over! Vote for me, you lying, dog-faced, pony-soldier!
But, again, they just don't get it... the insults and crazy tweets and off-the-wall comments are just fluff. The policies matter... so again, Donald Trump has trolled the Democrats into thinking that his biggest weakness is his biggest strength and should be emulated.

I had read that also and someone else was talking about ol bern yelling at them every time he spoke.
I had mentioned this here the other night while watching the SOTU. These people are so miserable and negative looking. Every time I see them none of them look happy.
Funny thing is.....they show Republicans on TV and although their being attacked every second 24/7 people like Gaetz, Graham, Giuliani, Trump, etc are usually smiling and laughing it all off. Pan now to Nadler, Pelosi and Schiff. BWAAAAAA
