Replying to Trump’s speech, Sen. Sanders tells resisters to ‘Keep showing up, keep calling Congress’

DAILY KOS

In a bullseye response to Donald Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night, Sen. Bernie Sanders first took on what the pr*sident didn’t say. Then he calmly ripped apart what he did say. Among other things:

“When Donald Trump said we need to promote clean air and clean water…I had a difficult time not laughing out loud. Because on this very, very day he signed an executive order rolling back President Obama’s clean water rules and has appointed the most anti-environmental EPA administrator in our nation’s history.”

And finally Sanders urged everyone who has been rallying and protesting against the regime’s actions and proposed actions to “Keep showing up, keep calling Congress, and continue to fight. If you haven’t taken action yet, we need your voice. Only together when millions of people stand up for economic justice, for social justice, for racial justice, for environmental justice, only then can we create a political revolution that will turn this country around.”

Here is his entire response without further comment:
