Just a short reply to Mr. Birnbaum’s “Irony” letter from Jan. 26.
I will agree with you that President Trump is a celebrity, although I consider him more of a blue collar billionaire.
Where I disagree with you in my opinion is that President Trump won the election not because he is a celebrity but because middle class America got fed up with the politically correct, corrupt, in-your-face government, and the Dems offered a failed big government candidate that offered nothing much different from Obama’s policies. The backlash wasn’t just against Hillary. In the last six years, Dems have lost the Senate, Congress and over 900 legislative seats.
