You are exactly correct. Trump voters definitely read less than us liberal folks. The cartoon below appeared in the Arizona Republic a few days ago:
To give you two quick examples that I am familiar with, consider 2 of our relatives who voted for Trump (strictly because of the abortion issue). One of them had not read a book for pleasure since leaving high school more than 40 years ago. The other one lived in a small town in Iowa for 18 years, and never set foot in the local library. Both of them say the rosary every day.
It's also apparent from "Fear" that Trump doesn't do much reading either, which is why he is so dangerous.
In contrast, Obama assigned himself 52 hours of reading on his summer vacation.
JFK also reportedly read 11 newspapers a day.
Most of us are under the impression that Trump hasn't even read the books he supposedly has written (as his ghost writer for "Art of the Deal" has alleged) but I was surprised to discover this morning that he has written EIGHT books. Reading them, however, is not an uplifting experience. To quote a reviewer who read all of them one weekend:
" Instead, I found .?.?. well, is there a single word that combines revulsion, amusement, respect and confusion? That is how it feels, sometimes by turns, often all at once, to binge on Trump’s writings. Over the course of 2,212 pages, I encountered a world where bragging is breathing and insulting is talking, where repetition and contradiction come standard, where vengefulness and insecurity erupt at random."
Our most prolific presidential writer is Jimmy Carter , who has written 46 books
Obama, surprisingly, is not far behind, at 42
Kennedy wrote 30
Hillary wrote 14 (including her scholarly publications) , but has had more written ABOUT her than just about anyone, and a lot of it is negative, which is a shame since she is one of the most qualified leaders our country has ever had.
