'Not a Normal Presidency': Reich Calls For 'Peaceful Resistance' to Trump
Former secretary of labor and current Berkeley faculty member Robert Reich called this week for a "peaceful resistance" to President-elect Donald Trump, saying his will be "not a normal presidency".
Reich called for critics to throw "sand in the gears" of his administration by asking citizens to lobby legislators into "forceful rejection" of Trump's nominees and carrying-out a boycott of Trump products.
"Our version of 'drill, baby, drill' is 'sue, baby, sue'," Reich said to Democracy Now, "We do have to regard this as not a normal presidency... This is really dangerous and we have to resist," he said.
He said Trump's cabinet nominees were "mostly unqualified and incompetent" when it comes to running the departments they have been asked to lead.
Reich specifically criticized Trump for nominating Hardee's/Carl's Jr. CEO Andy Puzder to his former post, warning of a "substantial danger" that Puzder will not enforce standard labor laws.
Former Carly Fiorina deputy campaign manager Sarah Isgur Flores told Jesse Watters on "The O'Reilly Factor" that Reich's and other Trump critics' reaction will hurt Democrats in the 2018 midterm elections.
