The 34%

Network exit polls reported that 34% of white, college-educated women who voted, voted for Trump.

Tina Fey has something to say to them:  "Don't look away."  Stay tuned and see what this president is doing.  She was speaking at an ACLU fundraiser.

She commented:

“I definitely came out of last month feeling misogyny is as much more real than two years ago. But the thing I worry about [more] than actual human interaction is the Internet. Because that’s just despicable: people just being able to be awful at each other without having to be in the same room,” she said. “It’s metastasizing now, thanks to our glorious president-elect who can’t muster the dignity of a seventh-grader.”
To me, that 34% statistic tells you something about the college education most people receive.  

In many cases, it's a technical degree.  The student is not asked to think, just to learn facts.

Our colleges turn out automatons.  It's no surprise that they vote for dt.

I know.  I spent many years teaching English classes in college, trying to get students to write and think.  The only thing they cared about was the grade.  And getting the degree.
