Oh, absolutely. California has, like, the fifth biggest economy in the world, larger than the UK. Hillary won “only” 500 counties, but they represent 64% of the GDP, whereas the 2,000 counties Trump won represent like 36%.

It’s just so ironic — the places that want to gut protections for workers and vote in the interest of the Koch brothers are themselves federal welfare queens.

Trump tweeted that he likes Taylor Swift's music 25% less because of her political post on Instagram. She endorsed the Democratic Senate candidate in Tennessee.

What a petty little man.

And then they get mad because their lives are more difficult — life expectancy in red states is actually going down — and they turn around and blame ... immigrants.
