Make America Sick Again??? Seriously Schumer thats the best you got? Your gonna seriously stand next to a sign that says 'make america sick again"

Goddamn the Democrats suck at messaging. They could not message their way out of a paper bag. The party that actually has policy and ideas to help the little guy is incapable of communicating those ideas to them.

What the Democrats are fundamentally getting wrong is that the average voters pays about 2 minutes a day to current events in Washington. This is how Republicans excel: They use catchphrases and nicknames like "death panels" and "obamacare" and it works like gangbusters. No one has time to sit and read the actual policy. I saw Chuck Schumer on Rachel Maddow yesterday and he had a new slogan to describe Trump's cabinet: the "Rigged Cabinet". That is awful. I can see he's trying, but he's missing a huge opportunity to turn Trump's messaging on himself. It should be something like the "Swamp Cabinet". The new healthcare should be called "trumpcare" at all times, so everyone knows who owns it now.

Can the Democrats snag some of Apple's marketing team?

It's the Trump virus I bet. I heard that the Democrats will be setting up vaccine stations, and immunizing all other Democrats so they don't catch it. A hash tag campaign will follow.

As for the Rigged cabinet comment, that's a basic shadey attorney tactic. Since the left DID do some rigging of the system, they turn around and accuse their opposition of doing what they do. It used to work, but I think people are on to it now.

Their idea of helping the little guy is to take money by force from other people to give to welfare bums.

Those that don't pay more than two minutes attention a day to DC, are likely the ones who also knee jerk react when something doesn't turn out the way they want it, and are also likely the ones who have let the individuals who are supposed to represent the people in DC do as they please, because of the lack of attention.

It's going to take some time, and attitude adjustments, for the Democrats to realize that minimalizing and marginalizing the Republicans (or Left -Right, if you prefer) for a number of years doesn't go away over night. Democrats aren't used to having to find and using catchy names or phrases, and unfortunately, Republicans are a little too good at it.

At least Shumer made for a bit of entertainment.
