When Clinton wore white to a debate, the Times called the color an “emblem of hope” and a Philadelphia Inquirer writer used words like “soft and strong … a dream come true.” But when Melania Trump wore white, that same writer called it a “scary statement,” as if Melania Trump’s white symbolized white supremacy, “another reminder that in the G.O.P. white is always right.”
America is often described as a society without the Old World’s aristocracy. Yet we still have people who feel entitled to boss the rest of us around. The “elite” media, the political class, Hollywood and university professors think their opinions are obviously correct, so they must educate us peasants.
OK, so they don’t call us “peasants” anymore. Now we are “deplorables” — conservatives or libertarians. Or Trump supporters.
The elite have a lot of influence over how we see things.
I don’t like Donald Trump. I used to. I once found him refreshing and honest. Now I think he’s a mean bully. I think that partly because he mocked a disabled person. I saw it on TV. He waved his arms around to mimic a New York Times reporter with a disability — but wait!
It turns out that Trump used the same gestures and tone of speech to mock Ted Cruz and a general he didn’t’ like. It’s not nice, but it doesn’t appear directed at a disability.
I only discovered this when researching the media elite for my TV show. Even though I’m a media junkie, I hadn’t seen the other side of the story. The elite spoon-fed me their version of events.
