Our elite class loves to explain to laid-off workers why their woes are their own fault. They don't have a college degree. They should have started their own companies. They're on drugs. They're too fat or lazy or dim to quickly adapt. Trump beckons... "There will be so many jobs." "It will be beautiful."
Bernie Sanders's problem with exports, "because they benefit large corporations," is more than somewhat astounding. Who does he thinks works in all the Boeing plants? Doesn't he realize that a large percent of Boeing shares are owned by various American retirement funds and individual American 401k plans?
Republican Donald Trump was the big winner in the presidential contests Tuesday in Michigan, Mississippi and Hawaii. But former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton narrowly lost to Senator Bernie Sanders in Michigan because she underperformed with working-class, white male voters, a group Trump does well with. This portends a serious problem for Clinton should she face Trump in the November presidential election.
