    2:38:18 that's exactly the problem with the democratic party. Yea they're fucking weak sauce. But so is pandering to this racist bigots instead of calling them out for what they are. Deplorables.

    So this whole coastal elite thing reminds me of poppers paradox of tolerance.

    I understand the idea that we should be in favor of universality of re-distributive economic and social programs. I agree 100%. I do not think we need to appeal or accept or tolerate (either tacitly or explicitly) racist and bigoted views and I think we should call them deplorable when they behave deplorably. The problem wasnt that Clinton called them deplorables. The problem was she didnt stand up for that view and also to be fair the media turned that into a sound bite and took it out of context, which to be fair she should have expected as a fairly seasoned politicians.

    2:18:25 No that 100k vote wasn't in those states. Those states were all solidly red. The states where people rail against so called coastal elites aren't gonna fip for 100k votes. The 100k that flipped were people in Michigan where she basically said fuck it I'm not gonna campaign. Had NOTHING to do with deplorables.

    See the deplorable thing may not be helpful but in the context of this election we clearly saw that energizing your base meant dirty politics. Why did appeals to tribalism only work for trump? If Clinton doubles down on calling people deplorables does that not have the same energizing effect? If you say it doesn't then youre saying something about those people who voted for Trump. You're saying their rednecks or hicks or whatever,

    If retraining isn't the answer, then what is? This isn't meant to be rhetorical, I'm legitimately not sure what else there is. I mean obviously we want a robust social safety net but since UBI is something that isn't even likely to happen in Sweden any time soon let alone the US, they still need to be able to get jobs eventually somehow. What are the other options?

    Thanks!

    Hillary was right when she talked about deplorables (remember she said about half, she didn't say all Trump supporters – there's all sorts of polling that backs this up for any reasonable interpretation of "deplorable"). However while it may have been one of the more "real" things she said all campaign, that doesn't make it a smart thing to say. Let's be real, it wasn't really that different from Mitt Romney's 48% comment (which for the record was NOT "real").

    BLACK PEOPLE REPEAT WHAT THEY HEAR FROM THE MEDIA ALSO.
    THE LIES HAVE THE SAME EFFECTS ON ALL PEOPLE.
    SAM ASKED WHY BLACK PEOPLE ARE SAYING THE SAME WHEN HOW IN HELL WOULD THEY KNOW HOW MANY FATHERS ARE INVOLVED OTHER THAN WHAT'S REPORTED IN MEDIA?
    SAM WENT BACK TO OLD RACISM DAYS WHERE THEY THINK ALL BLACK PEOPLE KNOW EACH OTHER.
    WHY WHITES NEVER SAY HOW MANY SINGLE MOTHER FAMILIES THEY HAVE?
    WHY DO THEY LIE AS IF ALL WHITE FAMILIES ARE INTACT?
    Remember Forrest Father Went On VACATION, AND another went to buy a pack of cigarettes !
    *BOTH COMMON PHRASES IN THE WHITE POPULATION AND THE LAST THAT'S NUMBER ONE IS THE WHITE FATHER IS DEAD.

    I don't hear enough about how the "framing" of information is more important than the information sometimes. This is what is wrong with the Charles Murray crowd that so many people miss. It's not the information or data itself. It's narrative that gets pushed often when people discuss the data. Kudos for it being brought up here by the guest.

    Trump demands public humiliation and adoration because he thinks it makes him somehow legitimate. Its a total freak show considering he didn't do much like always. The GOP were foaming at the mouth to raid the coffers. The GOP had orders from their donor overlords to get this tax heist done. The sycophants were praising the man child for keeping it together and not blabbing enough how much this really screws poor people.
    It reminded me of how i used to praise my kid while potty training her. This is embarrassing, like something out of a N.Korea despot nation.

    On the worst day of 2017: I burnt my lip with burrito filling I was too impatient to wait for it to be cooler.
