Jonathan Turley on Trump Protests and Democracy

The evening after the results became clear that President-Elect Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential Election, thousands of youthful progressive protested in at least seven major cities to taunt Trump.

Protesters did not seem capable to articulate good reasons why they took to the streets. Many reveled in ribaldry or nebulous socialistic slogans.  

While normally talkative New York youths seemed camera shy towards Fox News Channel because "your guy won", the demonstrators were not benignly inclined towards CNN as they shouted obscenities about the press. 

In analyzing the agitations on the Kelly File, Jonathan Turley and the epoynmous hostess of the show lamented the manifestations of the "Cupcake Nation".

These are the same people who demand safe-spaces on campus in case they encounter opinions upon which they disagree, yet everyone must accede to their political will.
