Mary Ann Akers writes in Politico about Kim McKinney Cohen, a “lifelong progressive” who “was so disgusted with her party, she voted for Trump.” The turning point, Akers reports, was Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s disparagement of Trump supporters as “a basket of deplorables.” Cohen describes her vote for Trump as “a primal scream” aimed at the Democratic Party, about which she writes: “I wanted it burned down … so that we could build a new, hopefully more equitable one that meets the needs of all, not only the super-rich.”
