This “hot take” on the election over at The Hill really may be the most idiotic and maddening one yet. It’s up there, at least.

That can’t be said enough. They still are not getting it. Further, the histrionics and hysteria over President-elect Trump are just getting worse and worse. Boy, it’s going to be a long 8 years for them. And 8 years it will be, if such insanity continues.
@BookOfTamara Wow. What an article.

It’s hard to stomach reading the whole thing without becoming dangerously shake fisty. But here is a snippet from the article:
Now they’ve elected Donald Trump, the ultimate coastal elite. Trump pandered to their bigotry, and anger at Washington, D.C.
The more entrenched the flyover voting bloc becomes in their voting habits, the further they fall behind economically, by voting against their own interests, the more they blame Washington, D.C. and coastal “liberal elites” for their issues.
Oh, really. So, not only “held hostage,” but held hostage by Bigot-y Bigot McBigotsons. Sigh. Typical Leftist smear, which few believe anymore. Boy who cried wolf? That is YOU, Left. And then there is this:
@Heminator As if the flyover states aren't America.

Yep. And that’s the thing: According to the Elitist Betters, the “flyover states” are just dumb old rubes falling for “fake news” and such. Which is kind of weird: Isn’t it a wonder they can even READ? The Smarter Than You Betters don’t even want your votes; you are too stupid to matter. Well, the joke is on them now, isn’t it? They don’t want our votes? They damn well didn’t get them.
Twitter users swiftly and rightly mocked the maddening article.
@Heminator I don't know about you, but I am SO sick of being bossed around by Idaho.

America is held hostage by… America.#hottake

Ding, ding, ding.
It's week 5 now and the strength of the commitment to Not Getting It hasn't weakened one bit https://t.co/BvpjpR0P1k

Not Getting It. Ain’t that the truth! And this bears repeating too:
@BookOfTamara It is going to be a fun 4 years… 8 if they keep this up.

Keep it up, libs.

Not Getting It *and* Out of Touch. To be fair, it’s hard to be in touch when you refuse to leave your Ivory Tower bubble.
@BookOfTamara I don't even need to read the article to state this is why people in Flyover states hate the coasts.

@BookOfTamara PA and MI are flyover states now?

Whoops! Stop offering up those pesky facts and such. It doesn’t fit the narrative! Hint: Fake News? It’s coming from inside YOUR house, Dem-biased media. And here is a little hint for y’all (that’s folksy rube talk and such) from President-elect Trump (he won, whiners) himself.
