For all the opposition’s criticism of Donald Trump, 14 Democrats voted for every one of the first five cabinet nominees to be confirmed by the Senate, and the party still doesn’t seem to have a cohesive strategy. Comedian and political commentator Jimmy Dore did not conceal his anger toward the Democratic Party in his latest segment of “Aggressive Progressives,” furiously pointing out that even former vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine has voted in favor of all of Trump’s choices.

“This is the resistance!” Dore tells his co-commentator Steve Oh. “But somehow you and I, Steve, and Jill Stein are the problem, not these guys.”

This post was updated to reflect which nominees were referenced in the video.
