Why is America divided?

The answer is obvious.

We're divided because some of us think that abortion is murder while others think that it is a fundamental right. We're divided because some think that only boys have penises while others denounce such a view as vile transphobic bigotry. We're divided because some think that police officers are a threat to the commonweal while others think police officers are the only thing between us and anarchy in the streets. We're divided because some think we need a bigger welfare state while others insist that any welfare state is a road to serfdom. We're divided because some think America is an imperialistic bully while others think that it is America's divine duty to be the World's Police Man. We're divided because some think President Trump is a dangerous psychopath while others look to him as America's Saviour. And on and on and on and on and on.
