Any person running for the presidency appears serious when compared to Trump. Even the author. 

I don't agree with that.  Trump is behaving as a very serious contender.  He's quite confident and doesn't like to lose.

He may be a serious contender at this particular and sad point in history but that doesn't make him anything more than a serious threat to our Republic.

“This, then, is the core problem for Democrats. They are out of touch with most Americans. They have taken refuge in large coastal metropolitan areas and increasingly treat those who disagree with them with disdain. In fact, more and more research shows that well-educated progressives are the least likely to know anyone who sees the world differently from themselves. Conservatives tend to be more spread out across the country and encounter people who see the world differently from themselves. Progressives stay in their large cities surrounded by groupthink and convinced of their own righteousness. It makes it easier for them to presume the worst about those who dissent from progressivism and makes it easy for them to rail on the unfairness of a system that requires connecting to voters in flyover country.”

I am a liberal living a rural life in a red state. It's funny to read how out of touch Shapiro believes the Liberals are when the conservatives are running a man who has spent the majority of his life lying about how wealthy he was from his fake gold penthouse in NYC. A draft dodger who lies about Bonespurs to avoid service in the military. A weak man obsessed with the perception and appearance of what he believes is strength.  A man whose father had to purchase student placement in Wharton for him.  A man who was the loudest birther voice during the Obama presidency, who has shared content from the racist outlets that titilate him. Your guy is really in touch with the regular working folks right? 😂

Then there's the reality that Trump isn't really a conservative, he's an authoritarian. 

Let's talk about the groupthink that's necessary to daily defend the lies and authoritarian nonsense which flows from Trump. It's not even possible to come up with a democratic example of groupthink to compare to what the GOP has developed within the narrow confines of their media outlets. What is the liberal example of Pizzagate or the Jade Helm from the progressive side of the equation? Just consider the level of groupthink required to accept and rationalize the intentional inhumane treatment of children and adults in detention camps. 

By the way, the last two republican candidates for the presidency couldn't even win the popular vote.  It's humorous that the party which has trouble winning the majority of votes and clearly were cheating on state wide elections in a number of states would presume to lecture anyone winning.

“Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed that Russian election interference would not have happened when he was Vice President during a Friday interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo.”

Trump thinks that it's all a hoax.  Like climate change.  Made up. Fabricated to question the legitimacy of his presidency in a way similar to his use of the birther issue but in a less racist way.  

😂

I wonder if Biden's name will come up in Epstein's trial the way the Groper in Chief's name is sure to. That makes for an interesting campaign for the evangelicals candidate. It should dovetail nicely with impeachment hearings.

So people in rural areas are more exposed to people that think differently and this makes them more tolerant?  I call BS on that idea.  Don't get me started on small-town rural groupthink.

People that are different from the small town mindset flock to the cities for a reason...they are more diverse and tolerant.  This is why as a gay man many years ago I left small town north Carolina for the friendlier big city of Atlanta.  Big cities tend to more diverse and accepting of being different.

I will admit that people on the extreme left are intolerant of people on the extreme right and probably more vocal about it.  

I personally don't see anything wrong with sticking with like minded people.  I certainly associate with patients and co-workers that are Trump supporters, but I really don't think I have any in my social circle.  I think it's natural to get close to people that are more like minded and with people you have things in common with.  I don't find that a liability.

I guess Biden does too, as he fails to realize

You conveniently ignored the examples given of how the Democrats are out of touch with most Americans.  Instead, back to the old strategy of criticism of Trump.  Including the false one of how he is treating children inhumanly.  Only the out of touch believe that.

this post nicely proves the point of the article (not written by Shapiro, btw).

There is no false claim that Trump is treating immigrants inhumanely in detention camps, there's only spin from sycophants who don't want to acknowledge the evidence of cruelty. Only the indoctrinated spin detention camp cruelty.  

In a thread about the next election I will compare and speak about the candidates.  In this instance, the cruel conman authoritarian candidate is engaged in policy which seeks dehumanization of the immigrants while actively lying about it.  Congress just appropriated more money so that the poor people could have soap and blankets, but there's really no guarantee that the money will be spent as directed or that conditions will improve because this president has proved over and over that he cannot be trusted with earmarked monies in either his personal or presidential life. And remember, the hyper Christian VP was so appalled by the horrible treatment of immigrants that he sat on TV and lied repeatedly about it when he wasn't just projecting or deflecting.

Of course.  The claim is true until it’s proven false.  Oh wait, there have witness accounts reporting it to be false, but it’s still true.
