Joel Stein went to Trump Country in Texas, where voters applaud the president for “draining the swamp” in Washington.  High-level firings and resignations have hit almost every department. But Stein says crucial experts have been replaced by “people who know nothing,” and Americans unknowingly voted against their own interests.  His new book is called “In Defense of Elitism.”
