Washington thinks everyday Americans are not intelligent

I am beginning to think that Washington D.C and the bureaucrats and elites that run the city truly believe that everyday Americans are too stupid to know what is best for them and therefore they need to make decisions for us based on their superior intelligence.  It only makes sense as they refuse to acknowledge that President Donald Trump was elected because we realize how self serving they are and they can’t bring themselves to accept that Americans are truly smart enough to understand what is needed.  I wonder if they have begun to trick our President into believing what they believe, that we average Americans aren’t smart enough to run our own lives.  What a pity as we average Americans are smarter then all of the politician’s in Washington DC.
