Better to be ‘folksy’

Why did the trade union leaders felt offended by being described as folksy?
Google show the definition of folksy – informal and unpretentious.
I would have thought that the description is complimentary.

Perhaps some of them prefer to be described as elitist or snobbish? I hope not.

When I read this description, I thought immediately of the popular and highly respected US president, Ronald Reagan. He likes to tell jokes, mostly about the Soviet Union, in a folksy manner.

If the union leaders don’t like the description, can they pass it to me? I don’t mind bring called – Folksy TKL.

If anyone wants to feel offended, wait till they cross my path. I will describe them as insane or idiots. I have already awarded the accolade to some people in high places and the people who follow them blindly.

Better to be folksy, rather than insane or idiots, right?

    Folksy might infer unsophisticated, simple minded, not wordly wise. Might also hint simple village folk.
