According to a Gallup poll, the majority of Americans who disapprove of President Donald Trump do so not because they are opposed to his policy and results, but because they do not like his character or personality. No surprise. We also know from the many negative, and often obsessive references to his mannerisms, his hair, his voice, his skin, his body, they also take issue with how he looks. These and other extrinsic critiques of a person are evidence of snobbery.

At the core of snobbery is the attempt to make yourself feel superior at the sacrifice of others, often by determining merit on external factors and other trifles. In the end it is the snob’s tenuous but exaggerated and extravagant view of himself that he needs to have confirmed by an outward display of his supercilious feelings. The only reward is the sudden but short-lived emotional currency, but the effects are often detrimental. As D.H. Lawrence wrote, “[snobbery] is the desire for what divides men and the inability to value what unites them".

No it isn’t about results or policy or even the politics, but how the president looks in comparison to how the snobs wishes he would look. With Obama, the snobs of the media could proudly virtue-signal to the rest of the world about their high-mindedness, all of it designed to impress, even if little changed in terms of policy and results.

Due to the sensational ridiculing of the president to the rest of the world (much of which was fake or false, but always snobbish), the media has only eroded America's image since Trump became president. Snobbery, after all, is always a process of diminishing returns.

The irony is that, though Trump's personality is labelled vulgar, boorish, a baffoon, a man-child, and a bully, snobbery is all of those things par excellence. But I'm very certain that if we were able to put Trump beside you, the reality wouldn't live up to the over-exaggerated view of yourself, and you'd find yourself to be a little bit inferior in all aspects.

That should help.

It's been interesting to watch people rip into him with insults because they don't like the way he insults people.

So people don't like Trump because they are Snobs???

You mean its got nothing to do with him being a horrible human being who gropes womens gentiles, makes fun of disabled reporters, makes light of POW's, has very little respect for others, lies and it looks like he worked with Russia to subvert American democracy?

yeah must be we are all snobs....

Like I said, it's all about looks and your own self-concern.

I think it stems from the fact that Trump had a successful reality TV show, and most people perceive reality TV as sort scummy because so much of it is scummy like Big Brother and that type. We watch those shows to feel superior to the contestants and watch the freak show.

Then a reality TV star with all the connotations that has who happens to be running Republican, beats their carefully groomed, career politician from a "star" dynasty name like Clinton.

It has to seriously chafe. It is like the ultimate finger to Washington and what it thinks it represents.

I've been saying it for awhile now.

The left needs to drop the moral facade and take a hard look into the mirror.

Well yah, all those billions, makes him better than (wink wink). But I've noticed a change. Remember when he met with world leaders the first time and pushed himself to the front? Now he's much more reserved , saw him sidelined in the G20 photo op, not in the center. Also saw him under hand shake both Putin and French president. That is evidence of a coached buffoon.

They told him look, don't push your opposite members around on stage, "This isn't WWE Donald, its 'Politics' ".
