THINGS ABOUT AMERICA I CAN'T EXPLAIN TO MY BRITISH FRIENDS

(And yet they keep asking)
  1. Donald Trump
  2. Resistance to public healthcare
  3. What "basic" means
    It's something to do with fall and pumpkin spice lattes, as far as I can tell. Am I close?
  4. Gun laws
  5. The Kardashians
  6. The extortionate cost of further education
  7. The presidency of George W. Bush
