Smile of the Week: A Liberal Anthropologist Goes Searching for "Trump Country"

Just start with the first tweet and keep on going.

Now, some of you might already know the twist here; I'm curious for the ones who don't know, when did you figure out the twist? It took me three or four of these entries, each increasingly unbelievable and Bias-Confirming, before I started to wonder about things.

Here Jesse Brenneman announces his mission, which is to heal the country by understanding Trump voters. Then he spazzes out about Hillary losing the election.

Here he comments on Trump Country radio, noting that all the stations are country, talk radio, and Christian, except those that aren't.

But that's just setting the table. His observations on dining habits in Trump Country are astonishing.

He is flabbergasted by yet another strange culinary sign that he's not in Kansas any more. (Actually he's in like Indiana.)

Further reports on the strange and wondrous signs and shibboleths of Trump Country.

He really gets it now.

While he grows weary in his travels, he is spurred onwards by the wokeness of a babe.

He reports on the strange folkways and superstitions of Trump Country.

Jesse Brennenman, whose entire odyssey is spent on highways and in highway rest-areas, draws some very dubious conclusions about the highly mobile lives of Trump Country people.

Once again, he's flummoxed by Trump County restaurants. This one might confuse Noted Outdoorsman and Working Man Jonah Goldberg, too.

Having earlier made the novel realization that there is not One America but, get this, Two Americas, he now just elevates beyond physical limits and decides that no, there are three Americas.

He is alarmed by the sight of strange rainbow-stripe flags in Trump Country, and wonders what perverse meaning they might have on these dark shores.

Trump Country is dangerous and it takes an intrepid reporter to dare the darkness.


I don't actually get this one, unless this is a big old Wink directed only at me (and most of you).

Finally, he looks at the bizarre media available in Trump Country, with DARK MYSTERIES OF POWER coded right into its front pages.

Thanks to John Sexton of Hot Air.

Open Thread/Good Night!
