Americans Tired of Elites Considering Them Stupid and Vicious

How stupid and vicious do they think we are? That’s a question that I think explains a lot of things about politics and society today — and about this year’s unpredicted presidential race.

The “us” in that question are ordinary citizens and the “they” are political and media elites who hold them in contempt — which they do over and over again by trying to obfuscate and cover up the source and motives of terrorist attacks.

    Americans are showing the same disdain toward elites that they show toward us and the latter are shitting in their pants.

      He’s getting attacked by the Democrats and the GOPe.
      Tells me he’s doing something right.
