The sneering response to Trump reveals exactly why he won
Too many people in the political establishment are actually anti-democracy - it's a terrifying development
If you want to know why Trump won, just look at the response to his winning.
The lofty contempt for "low-information" Americans. The barely concealed disgust for the rednecks and cretins of "flyover" America who are apparently racist and misogynistic and homophobic.
The haughty sneering at the vulgar, moneyed American political system and how it has allowed a wealthy candidate to poison the little people's mushy, malleable minds.
