Fair question!

Well, given the origin in a ‘tax the rich’ sense, I don’t know that I agree that it *can* mean “clueless rich person” and be generally understood. After all, it’s not possible to tax someone’s income/wealth on their degree of cluelessness.

But then, I also disagree with the construct in the ‘tax the rich’ sense, as I feel the wealth gap issue is mostly about *wealth* (as in assets), rather than income (which, yes, if high enough, almost inevitably leads to wealth), as it gives way too much of a free pass to those who ‘got theirs’ already.

But then, I qualify as “old” around the intertubez, so maybe I’m just too out of touch.
