They say they are part of the resistance.
A rather romantic notion for a political hissy fit which is nothing if not reactionary. What are the coastal elites resisting? They will answer with one word: Trump.
But dig deeper and ask exactly which of Trump’s policies they are against and the answers get a bit more confused. I heard one gay man claim that Trump is preparing legislation against gay rights. This is, um, incorrect. First of all, Congress prepares legislation. Second, Trump is all for gay rights, all for gay marriage. He is not a standard Conservative. He is not a libertarian. He is not a Democrat either. The fact is that Trump is a quirky man who loves America.
