The Democratic Party looks set to field an entire NFL team of presidential candidates vying to take on Donald Trump in 2020. One of the bests ways for these candidates to distinguish themselves in the eyes of Democratic primary voters will be to attack the concept of "privilege," and to highlight and/or blatantly embellish certain personal details in an effort to appear the least privileged, most down to earth, authentically cornpone candidate of the bunch.

These presidential hopefuls must be careful, however, because social media users, including some journalists, might decide to fact-check their homespun tales of gritty adolescence, and lurid melees with the faceless goons of anti-privileged youth, etc.
