I mostly agree with this, an editorial on Bill Moyer's website.

The one bit I would criticize: the claim that "many [Trump voters] are now having buyer’s remorse." Is there any evidence for this? Republicans in Congress may be having some heartburn. Average Joe Shmo probably doesn't see what all the fuss is about, and is happy that Trump is acting so "strong".

However replace "Trump voters" with "non-Hillary voters". The half of American voters who did not show up at the polls, are they having some remorse now? Or will they? All those people who are like, "I don't see why I have to vote for the lesser of two evils"-- can they see the answer now, that if you don't you get the GREATER of two evils, AND THAT'S REALLY FUCKING EVIL?

I would say, don't be surprised if Trump voters double down on thinking all this is just ducky. But embrace people who didn't realize before the election that they needed to vote, and embrace anti-Trump Republicans.

Important points:

1) Abandon the circular firing squad. I am seeing anti-Trump activists attacking our wonderfully liberal and outspoken Senators for compromising on some Cabinet appointments. Really? Attacking Warren for not being all no all the time? I am terrified of a world in which we don't have Elizabeth Warren in the Senate. Curt Schilling would be thrilled to replace her, and he would totally be Trump's lap dog.

2) There are Republicans in the Senate who are against corruption and foreign interference. If they keep up their opposition to corruption and foreign interference, they are our allies in the fight to get rid of Trump, who is insane.

3) Keep the spotlight on corruption, kleptocracy, and the influence of Russia.

4) "Regardless of party, support any member of Congress — and anyone else — who stands up to Trump in defending the two central pillars of democracy that he’s attacking."
