They have no basic economic underpinning to understand the Wall Street Journal as many attended Ivy League Universities that abhor capitalism in favor of cultural Marxism.
The so-called elite, are more comfortable with the New York Times, they understand it, it understands them, pandering to their prissy whims.
Most of them can’t and don’t read the paper but keep it around as a bird-cage liner for their exotic birds.
As they continue crying and licking their wounds over Hillary’s colossal loss to President Donald Trump in November, they have only themselves to blame.
They spent too much time listening to their own self-talk and the echo chamber made up of tripe and useless asides found in the NYT.
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Nine years after Barack Obama accused small-towners of clinging to guns or religion, nearly three years after Jonathan Gruber was shown to have attributed ObamaCare’s passage to the stupidity of the American voter.
Eight months after Hillary Clinton pronounced half of Donald Trump’s voters “irredeemable,” Democrats are now getting some sophisticated advice: You don’t win votes by showing contempt for voters.
In the last week or so a flurry of articles has appeared arguing for toning down the looking down.
In the New Republic, Michael Tomasky writes under the heading “Elitism Is Liberalism’s Biggest Problem.”
Slate goes with a Q&A on “advice on how to talk to the white working class without insulting them.”
None of these pieces are directed at Trump Nation.
To the contrary, they are pitched to progressives still having a hard time coming to grips with The Donald’s victory last November.
Much of what these authors write is sensible.
But it can also be hilarious, particularly when the effort to explain ordinary Americans to progressive elites reads like a Margaret Mead entry on the exotic habits of the Samoans.
Mr. Tomasky, for example, informs progressives that middle Americans—wait for it—“go to church.”
They have friends (“and sometimes even spouses”) “who are Republicans.”
“They don’t feel self-conscious saluting the flag.” Who knew?
