Better Late Than Never

CNN's Fareed Zakaria, as quoted in The Washington Free Beacon, which links to the video:
The election of Donald Trump is really a kind of class rebellion against people like us, educated professionals who live in cities, who have cosmopolitan views about things.

There's a part of America that is sick and tired of being told what to do by this overeducated population that Hillary Clinton perfectly represented. That's why they're sticking with him.
Well ... yeah, sort of. What Zakaria didn't add was that Trump advocated policies which made sense to his voters, policy preferences that made them, in Hillary's eyes, "deplorable." Eight months after the election he is finally figuring out a part of the reason she lost.

Full disclosure: I'm an "educated professional" who chooses to live in the country. I'm guessing I've been to more nations than Zakaria has, 115 at last count. Widely traveled, I'm nevertheless a nationalist, an American patriot.
