You hear this a lot from Trump and his supporters. But as a Trump voter, I find it highly insulting. It's implying that Trump voters are helpless idiots that only a daddy government can help because they're too stupid to get ahead by themselves.
It's also weird that the phrase resonates so positively with the "bootstraps" crowd who preach self-reliance and say that if you work hard enough you'll succeed.
I mean, which is it? Are you forgotten men and women not working enough? Or are you just so hopeless that only the government can save your asses?
