Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado was on “Face the Nation” this morning and ABC News’ Ali Rogan had questions. Specifically, what’s that thing over his right shoulder:

Yes, it’s a “tire graveyard.” NAILED. IT.
Yes, yes it is. That's a tire memorial in the background.
Tire funerals are actually quite touching.

She’s not a car person nor a farm person, apparently. Here’s Sen. Gardner with the explanation:
This is a piece of farm equipment known as a disk, and we use it to get the fields ready for planting! https://t.co/ZXsC7G13lu

But twitter let Rogin have it for not understanding what it was:
More likely you aren't a farm or ag person. It's okay. That's why we have farmers and groceries stores. They do the work so you don't have to.

Might I suggest you explore our great nation?

You know how sometimes you eat plants? An impoverished person actually uses that tire graveyard to help make those plants grow out of the ground!

It's farm equipment.
Have you ever left the coast? You should sometime, America is beautiful!

Yup. Deplorable farmers use these “tire graveyards” to grow food. And your precious renewable energy. (Yes Ali… corn for ethanol is grown on a farm… using farm equipment)

The obvious solution is to send Rogin to Iowa in 2020:
I take it you've never covered an Iowa caucus.

No wonder rural America hates the cities.
