Trump’s Gang

Since they started writing against Donald Trump’s ranting rather cool McLuhan esq discombobulated vitriol; never trying to help readers better understand his words or his intent, always making what he says seem divisively nonsensical, they’ve jabbed his supporters subtly at first but with the same devastating consistency as they paraphrased Mr. Trump’s speeches always implying that they were much smarter and more literate than he. Even pieces that seemed finally to accept his candidacy as inevitable came the unmistakable digs at his supporters many of whom they’ve said again and again are poorly informed and without college degrees. Today they continue separating the poorly educated from the better informed and better educated, now characterizing these poorly educated Trumpists as not just uneducated but violently polluting the political process with their frightening behaviour.
