… is this comment by Kevin Erdmann on this recent EconLog post from David Henderson:

unknownI’ve noticed a similar pattern lately in reactions to Trump cabinet appointments, where his appointments of wealthy businessmen are treated as betrayal of his working class base, assuming they all feel fooled.  I haven’t heard many complaints from his base because they would consider a bunch of Ivy League lawyers to be more of a betrayal.  But, many people who see the world through a Marxian framework can’t imagine that the proles they presume to defend don’t share their worldview.
