Democrats have so many "over-the-top" reactions to every move President Donald Trump makes – the latest being their fury over his withdrawal from the Paris Accord – that Americans don't listen to them as much anymore, former Rep. Tom Tancredo tells Newsmax TV.
"There is this riled outcry and over-the-top craziness," Tancredo said Friday to Newsmax's "America Talks Live" with Bill Tucker.
"I have a feeling that doing this as often as the Democrats have been doing and progressives all along the line, even Republicans, it minimizes their ability to make an impact with the screaming, crying, tearing-their-hair-out reaction to Trump's activities."
"After a while I don't think people pay as much attention to it … They've overplayed their hands so many times that it's losing some of its effect."

Tancredo, who ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2008, added that Trump might have provided more context for rejecting America's participation in the Paris Accord.
"I think he could've also explained that this could never have passed if it were presented as a treaty to the Senate," Tancredo told Tucker.
"It couldn't have passed in the [President Barack] Obama days. It couldn't have passed in a Democrat-controlled Senate. Most senators are opposed to it … It could not have passed the Senate as a treaty. Hence, it wasn't a treaty. It was an accord."
