Democrats Resort To Desperation To Raise Cash…
Since it looks like Donald Trump has a real chance of winning the 2016 presidential election, Democrats are reportedly scrambling to raise money for the 2016 House races. But what’s ironic about their unoriginal idea is the fact that Donald Trump actually came up with it, and the one item they’re selling will blow you away.
According to Breitbart, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is selling a blue hat that reads, “Make Congress Blue Again.” Now, doesn’t that look familiar? For those who don’t know, the hat bears an uncanny resemblance to Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again.”
For those who don’t know, Democrats, who need to secure 30 seats to win the House, are still a bit concerned about Donald Trump and how he could affect the election over the next few months. With a 41 percent support rate, it’s probably safe to say Democrats should be a bit concerned. It appears Donald Trump is packing a much stronger punch than most people expected.

So, does the desperate move suggest Democrats are finally worried about Donald Trump? That may be so, but they were warned months ago. In fact, Jonathan Capehart, a commentator for the Washington Post, just published an opinionated piece about why Democrats should be alarmed by the depth of Donald Trump’s support.
“Trump’s support is deeper than we want to admit. And if we’re really being honest, we know his support doesn’t just reside within the Republican Party. Thus, Trump’s ‘I really don’t give a damn’ mien could prove dangerous to a Clinton campaign that prizes control.”
I think the act of desperation makes the Democratic party look even worse. Attempting to combat the enemy by using one of their own creations suggests the Democrats are unable to come up with an original thought. So, if a political party can fail at creating a simple marketing tool, how could they possibly make sound decisions on behalf of an entire country? The hat sales really make Democrats look bad, and they just acknowledged that Donald Trump has some great ideas.
