Take A Tour Of Donald Trump's Luxurious Private Homes
How many Trump supporters actually believe a man who lives like this is "connecting" with them and based on what? His coarse language? His total disrespect for women except as sex objects or being subservient to men like him?
Is this the kind of stuff Americans can "connect" with, much less want to connect with?
US election: Full transcript of Donald Trump's obscene videotape - BBC News
How is the following not someone who is expressing their superiority to others? How is he "connecting" with people, by insulting people, then whining when people call his insults and people that support them, "deplorable"? Is the following how you would like people to "connect" with you? If so, then why complain, when they do or what would you call people who run around insulting others in such a manner and those who support doing so, but "deplorable"? Do you want someone, much less the President of your nation to talk about hitting on your spouse/daughter/loved one and f-ing them, then bragging how if one is famous (not elite?) they (those being hit on) allow themselves to be grabbed?
What DO parents, even parents who supported him, tell their children when they see and hear what is on audio and video of a man who became President based on all the things they tell their children not to do? Or is it they tell their children to act in such a way is the way TO act?

And the people that are also billionaires who have lived modest lifestyles, passing much of their wealth on to help those not so fortunate as themselves, those that weren't financed by daddy?

The "working class" just as many or more who are Democrats and voted for Hillary Clinton (see popular vote) in spite of the numbers of people that stayed home, somehow thinking someone else choosing for them would be better than voting for someone their political opposition's propaganda told them they were cast out.
The Great Recession began before Barack Obama was elected and the recovery was slow, albeit still remarkable, considering the negatives President Obama was handed and where things are today.
Who, but people like Trump and his looking for and using cheap labor in other nations, is responsible for keeping the "demographic" of American labor's wages low/stagnant? Who has tried to raise minimum wages and been obstructed? Who has tried to get to work on America's infrastructure? Who has raised insurance rates, but insurance companies? There are a bunch more examples of obstruction. People were not "out cast" by Democrats, the Democrats lost power because Democrats stayed at home when the time came to vote for their interests and the republicans blocked everything the remaining Democrats wanted to do to help their demographic.
Trump, can promise things like anyone else, but aside from promising that he is the elite of the elite (by his own bragging about himself) and he'll make America Great again, he's not promising to follow through on what Democrats have tired to do, but to make it possible for more, not fewer, corporate crooks to operate at free will (deregulation), without being held accountable. just as neo republicans have done each time they get the power to do so.
If people blame elites on their problems, why would they elect someone who is even more elite with no track record of even trying to help the "little guy." to solve their problems?
