(ed: and of course the population-bulge of the millennials surpasses that of the baby-boomers – they will dictate politics for the forseeable future (after the boomers have gone) – so it is no small matter their general antipathies towards trump – now all they have to do is get out and vote in the upcoming mid-term elections – and when trump tries for a second term..)
Polls show the majority of millennials view Trump as an illegitimate president and they don’t like Ivanka either.
Millennials – those born between 1981 and 1997 – have become the generation the right loves to hate.
Only days after the November election Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox News Channel’s ‘Hannity’ to discuss the outbreak of anti-Trump protests.
Rather than take seriously the issues that voters were protesting Conway chose to use this as an opportunity to denigrate young voters: ‘We are just treating these adolescents and millennials like precious snowflakes’.Accusations of being snowflakes – entitled – whiners and slackers have constantly been leveled at our nation’s young adults.They’ve even been described as ‘the lamest generation’.But the attacks on millennials by those on the right have been especially vicious.Back in 2015 Breitbart ran ‘7 Reasons Millennials are the Worst Generation’.
The right-wing attacks on millennials aren’t just vicious – they are old and tired.
