All through the election the Trump fans railed about “elites”.

B, the term “elites” uses by conservatives is not a denegration to the educated, it refers to those who believe their education somehow qualifies them to make decisions about how others should live, mistakenly believe education alone imparts wisdom, and that their viewpoint is the only one that matters. Most of us rely on experts to help us improve our decision process. We don’t engage them to make decisions for us.
