So... How's The Resistance?

After the inauguration of President Donald Trump, many Democrats adopted a new mantra: "Resist." The word appeared on signs waved in massive marches in cities across the country, Greenpeace put it on a giant banner outside the White House, Congressional phone lines were jammed with those carrying the message, and thousands of people put #Resist in their social media profiles. But then the Cabinet was confirmed. Neal Gorsuch was seated on the Supreme Court. A Democratic candidate lost a special election in Montana, and Jon Ossoff, the Democratic hopeful in Georgia is moving toward the center. Five months after the fanfare, how is #Resist working out? Joining us are Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minnesota), deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee; Amy Walter, national editor of Cook Political Report; Bhaskar Sunkara, editor and publisher of Jacobin magazine; Ezra Levin, co-founder of Indivisible; and Brendan Steinhauser, former director of federal and state campaigns for FreedomWorks.
