In an effort to resist the new Trump administration, progressives are condemning anyone willing to work or praise the President — even when it’s a policy matter they agree on.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has become the latest target in the far left’s reign of terror for claiming that he plans on working with the Trump administration on trade and infrastructure spending. His praise of the President for killing the Trans-Pacific Partnership and voting for Gen. Mattis for Secretary of Defense and Gen. Kelly for Secretary of Homeland Security is driving many liberals off a cliff.

Progressive activists slammed Sanders on Twitter, claiming he is normalizing President Trump. They even said he was responsible for Hillary Clinton losing the election and charged that he’s racist.

Sally Albright, a D.C. based communication strategist, went so far as to release a 101-tweet rant declaring that Bernie was a fraud. She claimed his entire goal was to stop Hillary Clinton, despite the fact that he campaigned for her.

This division has led to an all-out war between the establishment Left and Sanders supporters. It speaks volumes that not a single candidate running for the DNC Chair would admit that Debbie  Wasserman Schultz helped rig the Democratic primary for Hillary Clinton.

The real test may be in the next election cycle. Activist and journalist Al Giordano has declared that he will challenge Bernie to his Vermont Senate seat in 2018 to punish him for opposing Clinton.
