@charlescwcooke "Trump is going to turn DC into a reality TV show!"

It's not just Trump. We are living in a television show. https://t.co/Wd7fLUk47S

Donald Trump is going to transform American politics into a sideshow. Which means Democratic legislators now have to work even harder than usual to maintain a high level of professionalism in our government.
Maybe California Rep. Karen Bass can lead the charge:
I want to hear directly from my constituents! Do you guys think I should attend the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump?

After receiving an overwhelming response on the twitter poll, I've decided not to attend the inauguration of President-elect Trump. pic.twitter.com/ig4kFn0GGH

Because this is where we’re at now.
@RepKarenBass Are you sure that only your constituents voted in that poll? Hmm?

Not an unreasonable question.
@RepKarenBass Curious, would you use this unscientific poll format to influence how you cast your votes in Congress?

Also not an unreasonable question.

@charlescwcooke Twitter polls are better than the Electoral College, you know.

@RepKarenBass This decision was determined by a Twitter poll? Oh my…what a world in which we live.
— Matt Mallory (@ilikedags17) January 17, 2017
@RepKarenBass congrats on not being able to make your own decisions!?

@RepKarenBass I don't question the outcome, but saying "because Twitter told me to" is nonsense. Be a leader. Teach us why this is right.

@RepKarenBass maybe you should have the guts to decide yourself instead of putting your finger to the wind. I didn't support Trump btw.
