The Smirking Class

Last night, I was tootling around the comments section of iOTWReport. I saw something that caught my eye.

A commenter who goes by the name Am I write? wrote:

Donald Trump isn’t a politician — he’s a one-man wrecking ball against our dysfunctional and corrupt establishment. We’re about to see the deluxe version of the left’s favorite theme: Vote for us or we’ll call you stupid. It’s the working class against the smirking class.

The working class against the Smirking Class.

Wow. That is so spot-on.

Whether you’re describing the Enslaved Press, Inside-the-Beltway Republicans, or the #NeverTrump movement — the Smirking Class is a one-size-fits-all definition.

Rush refers to the Mitt Romneys of the Republican Party as “Rockefeller Blue-Blood Republicans.”

But “the Smirking Class” is a much better fit.

The condescending smugness these guys manage to burp out on a daily basis is mind-boggling.

Whether they’re calling Trump “the Cheeto-faced vulgarian” or his supporters “white trash” or “trailer trash.” The Smirking Class can’t help themselves.

This oh-so-much-smarter set know better than you. They did not want the great unwashed choosing the Republican nominee.

And now that voters have made their choice, these members of the Smirking Class can’t stop sniffing at the candidate we chose.

He’s boorish.

A lout!

He’s just so impolitic!

A reality TV star with terrible hair!!!

How gauche! Gold fixtures in his gaudy mansions. And those ridiculous TRUCKER hats!

And just look at his supporters!

“Bikers for Trump?!” Have you ever heard of anything so uncivilized?!

And those two black women who make the YouTube videos?! Ugh! They’re no better than Jerry Springer guests!

The Smirking Class went into hyper-drive during the Republican Convention. It was garish and course. So inelegant and crass.

Oh, how lowbrow! All those yahoos chanting “Lock her up!”

How tacky! Trump entering the stage backlit like it was the WWF. The WWF for pity’s sake!!!

The caviar and canapé crowd are embarrassed by the pork rind and NASCAR rabble who have invaded their elegant and refined Grand Old Party.

From the pages of National Review they sneer condescendingly — laughing that Trump and his supporters will never comprehend their arguments because we’re too stupid to tackle the big words they use.

They congratulate themselves for being just too clever by half as they ridicule Trump for showing up in Louisiana and handing out supplies from the back of a tractor trailer.

What nonsense! He donated toys and Play-Dough to the children!

How does he expect to win when he isn’t holding weekly fundraisers in the Hamptons and Beverly Hills?!

Let’s be honest. The Smirking Class has always been embarrassed by you.

You rabble with your Gadsden flags and homemade signs marching in Tea Party rallies. What do you plebeians know about Government?!

This is what happens when stupid people are permitted to vote.

Every four years the Smirking Class has demanded that we unwashed masses hold our noses and vote for their guy.

This time around, we’d had enough of the Smirking Class. We sent their guy packing without so much as a single primary win.

Now it’s their turn to hold their noses. And rather than do so, they stick their noses up in the air and scoff at our candidate.

But the Europeans don’t like him!

Dear Gawd! He’s campaigning in one of those TRUCKER hats!!! Mitt Romney would NEVER have worn one of those!!!

They point to their lofty principles and declare that they cannot stoop so low as to sully them by voting for a vulgarian like Trump.

These are the same lofty principles they had no problem quietly tucking aside when they nominated Romney or McCain.

When they wanted to maintain the power of quisling pukes like Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, those principles they now don like a tuxedo and tails were nowhere to be seen.

Their problem with Donald Trump has nothing to do with “principles” and everything to do with snobbish elitism.

These members of the Smirking Class would rather have Hillary Clinton as President because at least she, like them, knows the order of things. With a Clinton Presidency the political aristocracy will be maintained.

And let’s be honest. That’s the only principle that matters to the Smirking Class.

My good pal Disloyal Subject emailed me to let me know that the term The Smirking Class is coined by Ann Coulter in her newest book In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome! I would hate not to give credit where credit is due. — Dianny

    The comparison is incomplete:it’s the Working class vs. the Smirking class,with votes being provided by the Shirking class.You know,those who are bought with the taxes of the working class.

    Something like Thurston and Lovey Howel of Giligan’s Island fame? Hey maybe the Skipper can arrange another “3 hour tour” and we can get rid of a bunch of these elite lil piggies.

    Good article.
    The “Smirking Class” reminds me of the spoiled rich girls in all the teen movies ever made.
    They didn’t get their way and are now jumping up and down and throwing tantrums.
