The tweet above is just the beginning of a fascinating Twitter thread that has captured the attention of thousands.
Patrick Thornton shares in several tweets and responses his thoughts on why rural Americans find it difficult to understand the outrage over the Trump election.

I've "storified" much of the thread below. I really encourage you to read it, and then check back for more at Patrick's Twitter account. I think this is an enlightening conversation.
