Interesting. You saw the piece as an attack on the president? I saw it as the explanation of a single phenomenon, and largely a defense of the logic propelling it.

Or are you saying that this is too dangerously sympathetic to Trump? I don’t think so. I think his followers are experiencing real distress, and that mainstream democratic leadership has been oblivious to it. You can’t attack all of Trump’s followers. You can’t see them as deplorable, or you’ll never understand the structural problems they are up against.
