“Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence. … They scoff, and speak with malice; with arrogance they threaten oppression. Their mouths lay claim to heaven, and their tongues take possession of the earth. Therefore their people turn to them and drink up waters in abundance... Surely you place them on slippery ground; you cast them down to ruin. How suddenly they are destroyed.”

Psalm 73

From an article by David Brooks.

In the article Brooks suggests that most of the Trump supporters are disenfranchised folks who have lost jobs and had their dreams shattered. Most of the Trump supporters I know do not fit this category. They are doing pretty fine as far as I can tell. They are certainly doing better than me, not that I have anything to complain about..
