Democrats are really angling to bury their own graves by mocking average Americans who will get an extra grand or two in their paychecks because of Trump.
Katy Tur decided to join in and show just what a snobby elitist she is.
Woman who just spoke says she's going to use her $1,000 bonus and tax cut to help buy a home and pay for her two kids who are going to college.— Katy Tur (@KatyTurNBC) February 5, 2018
In Hamilton Co, Ohio (where they are) avg home is $277,582
Avg cost of private college nationally ~35,000
Gentleman at Ohio Trump event says he's going to save to start a family with his 1,000 dollar one time bonus.— Katy Tur (@KatyTurNBC) February 5, 2018
Average cost to give birth to one child in Ohio is $5,836.
Wow. What a jerk.
I guess she’s never had to scrimp and save every nickel in order to save up to buy something big like a house, or never had to worry about the cost of raising a child.
And this is exactly where Twitter can be awesome.
They slapped her down righteously:

Make fun of people who just had something good happen to them
They are not stupid and your attempt to make them stupid is day worse that stupidity
It is cruelty https://t.co/bk1NJxU79M
Besides being patronizing, Ms. Tur also got the facts wrong. This man, Tyler Berkshire, received a $1,000 bonus and is paying a lower rate on regular income. Transcript: https://t.co/jXT2rSCaZA https://t.co/yrqQUysjxh— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) February 5, 2018
The ignorance of those who have never lived paycheck to paycheck is astounding. https://t.co/D4Ro2WfzSM— Caleb Howe (@CalebHowe) February 5, 2018
Um... are you confused about how a $1000 can be used as part of saving for something that costs more than $1000? https://t.co/E0MWT4MjoG— Frank J. Fleming (@IMAO_) February 5, 2018
It really is amazing what level of ignorance and arrogance Tur shows so blithely here….
