As a grown-up, I can understand their (usually inelegantly-stated etc) point. What are the downsides of that "fluidity"? RT @Pontificatist [to YAppelbaum] I love your story but it occurs to me that a MAGA American will hate the fluidity of Americanness you describe. <sigh>

.@MyNameH33271686: @julietlapidos & @YAppelbaum fail as Americans. Canada (corporate pluralism) is more appropriate for them that the USA (melting pot).

Because Trump is smarter than King & you two? Either that or sun spots. MT @YAppelbaum Steve King is a “special guy, a smart person, with really the right views on almost everything,” the president has said. So why, asks @AdamSerwer, is King drawing condemnation, but not Trump?

.@AdamSerwer @YAppelbaum: even if Steyer offered you $10 million for something that'd reduce Trump's popularity by 5%, you'd completely fail as you always have. You simply lack the smarts, sanity, & life experience to undercut a clown. #TheAtlantic #MAGA #resist

A self-aware, almost sentient comment. You're both ready for your Trump Turing Test! MT @YAppelbaum "Trump’s political opponents know who he is. His aides know who he is. Americans don’t need a tape to know who Trump is, or what he represents.” @AdamSerwer

.@JoshuaMZeitz blogs "Does the White Working Class Really Vote Against Its Own Interests?" It's a brilliant piece incl "As Ta-Nehisi Coates argues". @billscher @YAppelbaum @JoyAnnReid all agree it's brilliant! Highly recommended for #TheResistance who want to grok #MAGA!
