"Just blowing off steam"

by digby



GOP Senator Ben Sasse has always tut-tutted Trump's demeanor. Now he doesn't like his policies either. Huh. I wonder what he could have done about it ...

Some Trump followers needs to wake up and realize that Trump doesn't see them as Real Americans either. He cares about steel workers, manufacturing workers and miners. He has as much interest in a bunch of farmers as he does in people who work as Starbucks barristas or hotel maids, which is to say none. If you don't wear a hard hat, he doesn't see you as his base even though you are.

I don't know if his followers will actually care if he destroys their own economic well-being. They love him that much. But it's got to put a strain on the relationship.
