This is why Trump won.
In the wake of President Donald Trump’s election, a big can of crazy has been opened and our state’s political leaders have all taken a big swig then passed it around.
I just noted that our junior U.S. Senator, Kamala Harris, recently offered profanity-infused political commentary more worthy of a late night comedy show.
Now it is being reported by the Washington Free Beacon that the a Congresswoman representing the area around Silicon Valley has revealed her true feelings about a the rest of the nation.
A Democratic lawmaker from California referred to Middle America as “Podunk, USA,” during a committee meeting last week, several sources inside the meeting told the Washington Free Beacon.
Remarks by Rep. Anna Eshoo (D., Calif.) during a closed-door Energy and Commerce Committee meeting with Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai raised eyebrows from those present.
The moment occurred when Eshoo pushed back against Pai when he was discussing expanding broadband access to rural areas.
Pai said that eliminating Title II net neutrality rules would benefit places he has traveled to, such as Parsons, Kan., Elverson, Pa., and Cadillac, Mich.
Sources inside the meeting told the Free Beacon that Eshoo was frustrated with Pai’s comments. She wished out loud that Pai would stop talking about “Podunk, USA” and instead be more concerned about the venture capitalists on Sand Hill Road in her district near Palo Alto, according to the sources.
To give you a sense of the depth of her thinking, here is Eschoo’s recent assessment of President Trump’s tax return “crisis”, which was offered at a recent townhall.
During his campaign, Trump claimed that because he was being audited, he could not release his tax returns. “There’s no such thing as being under audit and not being able to put your tax return out,” Eshoo told her audience. “It’s just a fib. A big fat fib.” The Internal Revenue Service, according to Reuters, has said that “nothing prevents individuals from sharing their own tax information.”
Granted, she is far more lucid than Maxine Waters on the subject of President Trump. So there is that.
Eshoo has been a progressive activist for quite some time. She was Chair of the San Mateo Democratic Party between 1978 and 1982. Given that she beat the Republican challenger for her seat by over 30 points, she has no need to worry about the next election. However, this attitude is likely to inspire backlash voting by the “deplorables” in “Podunk, USA.”
In fact, President Trump appreciates how much the support in Middle America meant to his election. It appears that he may be planning to hang the Electoral Map 2016 in the White House as a reminder to his staff, the media, the Democrats, and his supporters about how important “Podunk, USA” is to him.

One America News Network White House reporter spotted the framed map being carried through the White House by a Trump staffer.
“Spotted: A map to be hung somewhere in the West Wing,” the reporter tweeted.
Trump has often brought up his election victory over Hillary Clinton in the months since he took office. In April, the Washington Post’s White House bureau chief reported that Trump had asked the Post to run the election map on the front page of their newspaper.
I will simply note that this is in contrast to Trump’s selfie-taking predecessor, who had over 2 million photographs of himself taken during his 8 years in the White House.
Given how crazed California’s Democrats have become since last November, there is little wonder that Eshoo demeaned Middle America.
Thanks, Anna, for all the tolerance and respect! No wonder the rest of the nation is eager for us to #CalExit.DONATE
