Jim Michels, if you read the entirety of my first post, you would have seen that all my life I’ve been a back row person. All my life. You write: “get in the skin of the other..? ” I have lived and worked in small towns like those in the article, I have been part of that culture; I know these people; having known people like Trump, I can’t see his appeal. He’s a con man. I don’t hate the Trump people, I live with them, work with them, worship with them. My experience is as valid as yours…Patronize much?
