Don’t get too angry with poor Betsy. She’s just a perfect example of the intellectual wasteland our oligarchy resides in. She wasn’t trying to obfuscate (she can’t even spell it) she wasn’t being difficult, or even obtuse. She was being Betsy, and Betsy, like most of the people in her rarified social strata, is an imbecile. Like Trump, she is a sociopath, incapable of empathy or understanding of anyone else’s situation. Mix that with her obvious intellectual disability, and you have what we have experienced in America since it’s foundation. A nation run by an oligarchy of idiots, serviced by a “leadership class” (think people like Kavanugh, Gorsich, Mnuchin) of loyal, often brutal handmaidens, willing to to anything to get whiff of the oligarchy.
The French of yesteryear showed us the only way to deal with such an out of touch oligarchy. Heads in baskets.
