There are times when one couldn't say it better (scroll to 3:11 PM - 14 Mar 2018):

17 people die in a high school and a month later there's a nationwide protest to get the attention of lawmakers. One dog dies on an airplane and there's a bill in the Senate rectifying it within 48 hours.

As pointed out here many times, this is of a piece with HRC's "deplorables" and 'the states I won are 65% of GDP', IOW, the left behind knuckleheads are in that situation just because they insist on electing fascist governments. The coastal states mostly do otherwise. You elect government that treats you like chattel, you'll be left behind. And it's your fault.

HRC has been excoriated for telling the truth, even by pundit Democrats. The truth hurts some times.

well.  not that I disagree, but only that the situation appears to me much simpler.  primitive, even.  the radical right have a mind-image of 19th century USoA as the Garden of Eden, and they want those times back.  a man, a woman, a plow, 40 acres, and you live until you die.  that explains everything.  to me, anyway.

"we don't want to even consider how we ended up in this fucking trumpian mess. "

but, but, but we do know.  78,900 voters in three states (PA, MI, WI) put the carrot top czar on his throne.  78,900 deplorables.  that's the basic fact.  and, again, the Right has controlled at least 3/4 of Federal government for nearly the entirety of time since Reagan, while the deplorables' state governments abuse them still more.  things won't change until those folks figure out (if they've any brain left after all that opioid overload) they've been playing Russian Roulette (a great read, by the way) with their vote.  one can only hope.

and, yes, Pence need be Spiroed.
