Proles love Trump, even prole Saudi Arabians

with 63 comments

From the NY Times:

There was neither beer, nor tattoos nor women at the biker rally in Saudi Arabia’s capital on Friday night. But among the hundreds of men riding on roaring Harley Davidsons and sporting leather vests, there was overwhelming excitement about the incoming visitor: President Trump.

“We want to welcome Trump,” said Mohammed Alrasheed, 35, who had outfitted his motorcycle with a large green Saudi flag next to the Stars and Stripes of America and wore a helmet decorated with quarters, dimes and nickels.

That’s why I continue to believe that the foreign hackers who broke into John Podesta’s email did it because they are prole, and proles love Trump, and not because the Russian government was paying them.

Blue collar men’s room

Today I had the pleasure of using the men’s room in a warehouse that’s not open to the general public. In the men’s room there was a big pin-up poster of a young woman wearing only lingerie.

I found it amusing that blue collar men who work in warehouses are allowed to look at that when they use the bathroom, while men who work in white-collar offices in Manhattan have to pretend that they are eunuchs.

How I discovered the reason for ketchup

Until recently, I thought ketchup was useless except as something to dip French fries into. But when faced with a rather unpleasant turkey meatloaf, I remembered that Donald Trump likes to put ketchup on his food, so I thought I would give it a try. And amazingly, the ketchup turned the unpleasant turkey meatloaf into something enjoyable!

Thus did I discover the reason for ketchup. As a condiment that overpowers the flavors of food, it will absolutely ruin high quality Manhattan food. (And that even applies to Manhattan-quality hamburgers, you don’t want to ruin them with ketchup.) But when faced with crappy prole food, which is what the majority of America eats, ketchup works wonders.

The benefit of being prole

The brouhaha over President Trump eating his steak well done with ketchup reminds me once again of an important benefit of being prole, which is that you can eat whatever you want anyway you want to.

If I went to a steak restaurant, I would have to order the steak medium rare, even if that’s not the way I wanted to eat it.

Possibly, the reason why President Trump likes well done steaks is related to his fear of germs.

How can proles afford to take their kids to Disney World?

One day admission for a family of four: $484. And that doesn’t include parking. Or food. Or whatever else you have to pay extra for.

Santa Monica vs. Coney Island

Santa Monica, the most famous beach in Los Angeles County, is also one of the most desirable places to live in the Los Angeles metropolitan area.

Coney Island, the most famous beach in New York City, is prole. No one rich or famous would be caught dead living there.

Why did these two beach areas have such different outcomes? That’s the question to answer this Christmas.

Matthew Yglesias Vox article about Trump and Kushner

Matthew Yglesias hates Trump, but nevertheless there’s some interesting stuff here.

As comedian John Mulaney put it, “Donald Trump is like what a hobo imagines a rich man to be.” Actual social and economic elites in the contemporary United States regard ostentatious displays of wealth as vulgar and low-class. What you’re supposed to do is be subtly snobbish about various things — from locally sourced produce at the lower end to unique experiential vacations at the high end — not just slap gold on everything.

. . .

When Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof dreams of life as a rich man, he says he’ll have “one long staircase just going up / and one even longer going down / and one more leading nowhere just for show.” Like most working-class people, in other words, he would like to have more money, but he doesn’t especially want to become a cosmopolitan urbanite with hipster tastes. He wants to be Donald Trump.

I’ve been telling you for a long time that the real reason the elites hate Trump is because he’s LOW CLASS. Finally, someone admits it, using those exact words. At the same time, this is why the proles connect with him and love him. The proles don’t understand Romney’s slightly-embarrassed approach to being rich. What seemed very proper to me struck the proles as being sinister.

FBI agents love Donald Trump

According to The Guardian:

Deep antipathy to Hillary Clinton exists within the FBI, multiple bureau sources have told the Guardian, spurring a rapid series of leaks damaging to her campaign just days before the election.

Current and former FBI officials, none of whom were willing or cleared to speak on the record, have described a chaotic internal climate that resulted from outrage over director James Comey’s July decision not to recommend an indictment over Clinton’s maintenance of a private email server on which classified information transited.

“The FBI is Trumpland,” said one current agent.

This make sense. Even though the FBI is more prestigious than state and local law enforcement agencies, it’s still law enforcement, and law enforcement is a prole profession, and proles love Donald Trump.

FBI people have spent their whole lives protecting the country.

They don’t like modern Democrats who think they’re running for President of the World, and look out for everyone’s interests but those of the people who’ve been here paying taxes and dying in wars for generations.

Prole Jews LOVE Donald Trump

It’s true.

Prole Jews love Donald Trump a lot more than Mormons in Utah.

Trump eating prole food for dinner

While it could just be a publicity stunt to connect with proles, there is a lot of other evidence out there that Trump genuinely likes to eat prole food.

When I was a kid, and even when I was a college student, I never knew that fast food was low class. This is either because people who grow up prole are blind to the class markers of their proleness, or because attitudes towards fast food have changed substantially during the last 25 years.

I do think that when Trump was growing up in the 1950s, there was much greater uniformity in the eating habits of Americans, and that fast food restaurants as they existed back then (1952 was when McDonalds and Kentucky Fried Chicken both started franchising) were acceptable middle-class places to eat, and even the upper-middle class could eat there without being disgusted by it. I believe that Trump, unlike most other people, does not change his values based on changes going on in society, because he is immune to peer-pressure persuasion.
