The notion of a political elite is exactly why Trump won

Sometimes the news media inadvertently gets to the heart of the truth.

It’s rare, I know.

And it is never intended.

But it happens.

And after yesterday’s Funeral/Anti-Trump rally, the AP had a moment of unvarnished honesty.

Now, the AP’s objective here wasn’t to land on the truth.

No, the objective was to attack the President for having the temerity not to spend his Saturday donning sackcloth and ashes over the funeral of John McCain.

But in their attempt to attack President Trump, the AP landed on exactly why Donald Trump won the election to begin with.

Note the juxtaposition here.

“President Trump” versus “the nation’s political elite.”

There it is, right there.

This is the exact juxtaposition that got Donald J. Trump elected President.

As a Representative Republic whose entire design is self-government, the notion of a political elite is repugnant to us. Or it should be.

It runs counter to our Constitution.

And it is exactly why voters rallied to Donald J. Trump.

We’re sick and tired of Washington acting as if they are our betters.

In order to have an “elite,” one must also have “second-rate” or “inferior” citizens — or “commoners” if you will.

No matter what the news media and those entrenched politicians think, we’re not a monarchy.

And we have no aristocracy.

In fact, we fought a Revolution to rid ourselves of that kind of nonsense.

This tweet from the AP only confirms how completely tone deaf Washington and the political press are.

On what planet is promoting the notion that America has a political elite a good idea?

The Kennedys, the Bushes, the Clintons — we rejected political dynasties in 2016.

And rather than acknowledge that rejection, the AP – as well as other news outlets – continue to push for American dynastic rule.

Even the Washington Examiner:

As I said in my May 29th column King John and the Act of Succession, McCain was a Senator — not an Earl or a Baron. And this desire to treat his Senate seat as some inherited title flies in the face of self-government.

But it’s hardly surprising.

The political elite in America believe they are our betters.

For them, elected office is a patent bestowed upon them and their progeny.

This is arrogant, entitled, and wholly out of keeping with our republican government.

And if the AP and the rest of the sorry Fake News media believe that celebrating and promoting this notion of a political elite will go over well with the American voters, they’re dumber and more out of touch than I thought they were.

    They didn’t get it then, they don’t get it now, and I doubt they ever will until they are (hopefully) dangling from a street light.

    At least the AP had the decency not to call them “political leaders” because they certainly dont provide any of that.

    WELL DONE! These dumb sh*ts still do not understand that America was based on “all are equal”, ! The last 18 years “our betters” “the political elite” have done what helped them and told us to “go eat cake”! And all the “elite” who lined their pockets to our detriment were there; the worst of the bad were speakers!

    Even better, though little reported, McCain managed to pull off a remarkable political feat that only an elite could do. Get the President’s daughter and son-in-law to attend the traveling road show, and have their father’s political assassin Rod Rosenstein sit a row or two behind them.
    We do get it.

    And, John McCain has a legacy of one which is rarely mentioned – the most involved worst of the Keating Five! McCain weaseled his way out of that one and it still pisses me off to this day that he is revered as one of the most “respected” senators of our time…

    Didn’t he “prepare” his funeral attendee list for like 3 months or something?
    Who does that??

    As Senate candidate Brown said when asked about trying to take Ted Kennedy’s seat, his reply was, “That seat did not belong to Kennedy. It BELONGS to the people of Massachusetts.”
