“Let Them Eat Cake 2016”

A leftist Hillary supporter at Bloomberg offers his advice to the political class on how to deal with the millions of Americans who will vote for Donald Trump because of their declining economic circumstances (driven by deliberate Government policy choices) and their sense that the Government has grown corrupt and indifferent: Ignore them.

Come Election Day, we should vote as though this election matters more than others. Fundamental political structures and moralityreally are at stake. And on Nov. 9, we should go back to pretending it never happened, and that in the words of Sinclair Lewis, it can’t happen here.

There’s a little bit of condescending lip-service in the piece of “Let’s sort of pretend Trump voters aren’t really ‘deplorables,’ for the sake of the country,” but overall the message is that the political class should just treat this as a brief national tantrum and move on with the progressive experiment.

I am pretty sure pretending Trump never happened and the concerns of his voters were illegitimate was what the Political Class was planning to do anyway: Hillary will propose policies and continue the Obama scheme of simply imposing them by executive fiat. Republicans will pretend to oppose some of these policies, but will fund them completely and do little to stop them while the parties and the Democrat Media Complex distract us with a circus of “investigations” that go nowhere and accomplish nothing.
