that those are the actual words of ineffective democratic politicians should bother you more., but i get it. inconvenient truths wrapped up in satire like this provides people like you with fodder for critique. and that's about it. just like the people she's referring to
They are not just some inconvenient truths though.

They are just lazy Twitter socialist hot takes that lack context, nuance, and information. There are legitimate criticism to make about the Democratic Party, unfortunately people like that struggle comedian you posted is not doing that.

So please spare me about what should bother me more.

Plus it just wasn't that funny. A bit painful to watch a struggle comedian with weak material.

It was forced and the jokes would land better if said about the Republican politicians who will lament something ridiculous Trump does but then won't use their power to do anything about it.

It's impressive how much Pelosi has actually done these 2 years. She led the effort to regain the House, united the party when people thought the liberal wing would revolt, impeached Trump, and has successfully neutered any attempts by Trump or McConnell to pass dangerous legislation.

Also, as of December of last year, there were 275 bills from the House that are sitting on McConnell's desk. And how exactly is she supposed to impose a liberal agenda?

The liberal fantasy land will get us four more years of Trump, and I'm all for it!

Plus for her jokes to hit there needs to be some truth to it, be something clever about it. Newsom is not just standing back and hoping someone else deals with the fires, in fact he is getting ****ed by Trump for lack of help by the Feds. The Dems ****ing impeached Trump already just a little while ago.

Ole girl simply making hot takes, many ignorant, and I am suppose to what, laugh?

I mean, at least stick to material you know will work.

When I mock liberals, I always make sure to hit the key points: lazy effeminate male, drives a prius, eats kale, not dapper.

Why does the far left hate Democrats more than they hate Republicans?
depends on how far left you mean. far left involves anarchists and people who want to completely “reset” the American system. many believe classic dems and liberals are just centrists and moderates with (some) progressive ideas while still retaining the status quo.

I believe the makeups of the left/liberal leaning/democrat groups are why there are so many divisions on “their side” vs conservatives who seem to support party almost religiously. which again I believe is due to the demographic makeup.
