This is one of those friend-of-friend stories that no one believes. In this case, I actually know the people involved, so I can tell you it’s true.
It starts with my friend telling me recently about a conversation she had with her husband. He was part of a lunchtime discussion at work about the popularity of Donald Trump when his colleague said: “I don’t understand why people are following Trump. America is doing really well. The economy has recovered. We have plenty of jobs. Why would anyone be unhappy?”
In a certain slice of America, that perception is reality … though in reality, it’s a false perception.
