Last night, NBC/MSNBC analyst Howard Fineman post this photo of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer at a swanky party hosted by the NYT’s Maureen Dowd for fellow NYT journo Carl Hulse’s new book, “Confirmation Bias: Inside Washington’s War Over the Supreme Court, from Scalia’s Death to Justice Kavanaugh“:

And then he deleted it because people were being to mean to him:
Tonight I tweeted a pic of a Georgetown party hosted by @maureendowd, attended by @SpeakerPelosi, @SenSchumer and DC journos. In the old days it would’ve been a benign big-shot brag. No more. It was viciously ratio’d by left and right. I deleted it. All establishments are hated.

And he still doesn’t get it why people are angry, especially from his own side:
Note that the problem is perceived to be the photo, not the party. https://t.co/DspkbvJ9lS

LOL The elite are living in a bubble completely disconnected from the lived realities of working class people, a significant # of whom are POC at this point. They don't even seem to realize no one likes them or how stuck in the bubble of wealth & privilege they all are. https://t.co/hQIW6IjZjg
