New York Values

A weird thing about American politics is that for decades it has been ok - even expected, encouraged - for politicians to hate on the parts of the country where most people actually live. You know, people in those decadent liberal enclaves that Tory immigrant and DC/NYC resident Andrew Sullivan was warning us about after 9/11. It became such an accepted thing, part of the choreographed dance, that most of us just rolled our eyes at it. Trump's horrible, but you gotta respect his game, especially as conservatives all decided they "owned" New York after they gay married 9/11 before they decided they hated it again and wished bin Laden would've blown it up completely.
