The other thing I really don’t understand about this is how Republicans calling someone “elite” is supposed to be an insult. Isn’t that what Republicanism promises? That if you work really hard, you will be rewarded? That rich people deserve their money and successful people deserve their success?
So then why for a Republican would calling someone an elitist be a bad thing?
Isn’t being able to rest assured that you’re better than everyone else the conservative goal?
