“So can I ask you to do me a favor? Suburban women, will you please like me? I saved your damn neighborhood,” President Trump asked in a speech in Pennsylvania this week.
“That would be a hard no.”
“Hell to the no.”
A vomit emoji.
Those are a few of the responses I got when I asked some of the White suburban women I know whether they will give in to Trump’s recent pleas to like him.
Women of the ’burbs — like those enclaves they inhabit — are not who Trump thinks they are.
But by clinging to the notion that suburban women are White housewives who need to be saved from scary threats such as (gasp!) low-income neighbors and protesters for social justice, his wooing isn’t working.
