Response to DeminPennswoods (Original post)

2. I live in a small town north of Pittsburgh

Our local community FB page is awash in Trump zealots, the most vocal of them 70+ years old with union-forged pensions and SSI benefits. They hate Obama in particular and Liberals in general, and they're not too fond of these younger generations always wanting a handout, etc.

When I call them out for buying into Trump's bullshit, noting that he has yet to put forth anything that resembles a plan, they eagerly recite "wait and see," following the idiot mantra of their beloved small-handed leader.

I also pointed out that after the GOP destroys the ACA, they'll go after social security and medicaid, and they'll certainly work to undermine the federal backing of pensions. Where will these fools be then?

Still we're being told that we need to "reach out to Trump voters" and to "understand them." Fuck that. They make it clear that they hate everything that Liberals stand for, yet they understand none of it.

Call me cruel, but if every last one of them starves and freezes in the course of Trump's presidency, I won't shed a single tear.

They're idiots and selfish assholes. I keep hearing that smart people voted for Trump, and here's my answer: if you voted for Trump, you're an idiot. Even here in western PA.
