I’m sure you recall the long and nasty election season of 2016.  Yeah the one in which Donald Trump shocked the world and got elected President of the United States.   I immediately wanted to understand who in the world would vote for such a man.  Living in diverse, affluent Arlington, VA I thought we represented the rest of America.  Man was I wrong.  So I picked up this book at Barnes and Noble and learned about people truly suffering in the industrial industry, coal industry, with VA affairs, etc.  I also learned about what I suspected: racists and mysogynists making excuses about why they are or in total denial that they are.  Still quite eye opening about the America that I actually live in versus the progressive one I imagined in my head.
