A media narrative developed after the surprising election of Donald Trump that said that workers—specifically white, working-class men—were to blame. Whole sections of the working class, as a result, have been deemed irredeemably racist and sexist in the effort to understand how Hillary Clinton could have possibly have lost to the orange menace sitting in the White House. Sharon Smith, author of Subterranean Fire and Women and Socialism, and independent journalist Sarah Jaffe, discuss the problem with this attitude—and why working-class solidarity can be the antidote to Trumpism.
