I agree with you

I basically was born and raised in an area that totally relates (and supports) Trump.

But there's a flip side to this coin. The political situation we find ourselves in is not the sole province of condescending liberals looking down on middle class folks in rural America. It's also that same middle class rural base that forms it's own stereotypes about others and refuses to budge. They can be just as insulting when it comes to Democratic figures.

So there's some soul searching that both sides need. I don't imagine it coming any time soon, because the current president thrives on further polarizing this country. It's a dangerous cycle we're feeding.
