Sonny Perdue, Trump Ag Sec said...

"I had a farmer tell me this in Pennsylvania, what do you call two farmers in a basement?

A whine cellar."

It is Trump's policies wreaking rural America, but Trump makes fun of people with dumb sounding southern accents and his people yuck it up at the farmers' expense.

Some laughed at the agriculture secretary's joke, but other farmers booed and denounced Perdue's wisecrack as callous and tone-deaf mockery of the real hardship caused by the Trump administration's trade policies.
