The Washington Post Managed To Insult All of Rural America In 1 Tweet


Proving once again how vastly out of touch the media are with everyday America, the Washington Post managed to insult every single American living outside a major city in a single tweet, by suggesting rural residents don’t have smartphones.

Late Thursday evening, WaPo actually tweeted out this story, complete with its own incredibly condescending headline:

Whether the Washington Post thinks country bumpkins are too poor to own iPhones, too dumb to know how to operate them, or that modern technology simply hasn't spread that far into the sticks isn't immediately clear. (Though on all accounts, they'd be wrong.)

Thankfully, the Post's tweet was immediately met with an onslaught of mockery from Twitter users pointing out the newspaper’s ignorance and overt classism.


If you're still scratching your head as to how Donald Trump became the President of the United States, this just might give you a clue.
