In an effort to convince his followers to show up for the Iowa caucuses, Donald Trump exhorted: “Even if you’re not feeling good, if you’re feeling horrible, if you had a terrible fight with your wife or your husband … if you caught your husband cheating the night before, you’ve got to go to the caucus.”
Why did he choose those scenarios? Does he think the underclass, his blue-collar people, are usually suffering hangovers or routinely fight with their spouses? Does he really think the common folk are so “common” that his accusation of infidelity will strike a nerve in their low-class lives?
I guess the Ivy League university he attended never taught him the meaning of the word condescension.
