This crap has been going on since the 1980s and the Era of St. Ronnie Reagan as we headed into his new Gilded Age. It is caused by the stress of income inequality and fed by the divisive tactics of the 1% who want us all fighting amongst each other for the table scraps while they laugh all the way to their Cayman Islands Bank.

Trump as obnoxious as he is isn’t the cause, he is a symptom, but certainly one that figured out how to play the media like a fiddle to exploit the underlying divisions that already existed.
