Perhaps, but they were still savvy enough not to vote for your wife.

Former President Bill Clinton said in a speech Monday night that voters “trapped” in rural parts of the country voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election because they’re “more vulnerable to false claims.”
As reported by The Hill, Clinton told the crowd gathered at Georgetown University that geography was a critical factor in Trump’s victory over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“In the last election, in the counties that Hillary carried, you find 64 percent of America’s GDP. In the more numerous, rural counties carried by President Trump, you find 36 percent of the GDP, even though the median income of a Trump voter was higher,” Clinton said.
So…Higher income people who don’t HAVE to live in the city voted for Trump. Hmmm. But THEY are the gullible ones? Not the ones who haven’t figured out how to get out of the city?
I mean it’s not like many of the big cities are insolvent and corrupt disasters. Nope. Better to live in Baltimore where 13 out of 39 high schools did not have one student who is “proficient” in math. Not one. Way better than living on 10 acres with a garden where there’s no crime.
Those people who live out where the sun shines and the wind blows, where people wave to one another instead of walking the streets like rats scurrying from one pellet to another? Those people are “trapped.”
The people who live their lives in 3 city blocks though, those people are free.
Because why would anyone want to be trapped here…
…when they could be free here?*
*Don’t get me wrong. I actually enjoy many cities. San Fransisco and New York particularly. Even Washington DC sometimes. But the folks who seem the most “trapped” to me are definitely in the cities, not were grass grows, flowers bloom, and where one can actually hear oneself think.
