To cleanse the palate, a double-barreled goof from the Onion that’s circulating today on social media. Superficially it’s a dig at working-class Trump voters for being so achingly un-woke but the more trenchant satire is aimed at the modern left’s political hobbyhorses. Surely reconquering Pennsylvania requires awakening steelworkers to their cishet privilege, or does it?
Bernie-style class warriors will enjoy this as much as righties will. (Well, not as much.) Remember, according to the latest ABC/WaPo poll, fewer people now view Democrats as being “in touch” with the concerns of Americans than Republicans.
