Jonah Goldberg is onto something here.
Imperial Obama may think normal people in ”flyover country” are bitter, gun-clinging, xenophobic bible-thumpers. He said so.
Imperial Trump may think a not insignificant portion of his supporters are aspiring Grand Kleagles. He refused to disavow the KKK in a CNN interview.
Both statements are just what "New York Values" believers think of Republicans.
