This article probes the class biases of the upper middle class liberal media against the supporters of Donald Trump. For one thing, a description of his followers excludes the fact many of them are white working class. Secondly, the only reason presented as to why anyone might follow Trump is because his followers are ignorant racists. Maybe so, but as it turns out, working class people are very concerned about the economy. Trump’s stance on trade would bring back jobs to the US. Is that so stupid? It’s only class-oblivious liberals who can’t understand this.
