White Working Class: You've Been Conned

Trump told us all during the campaign that he thought American wages were too high:



Now he's acting on that threat by nominating Andrew Puzder to head the Labor Department, a fast-food CEO who is an enemy of raising the minimum wage. Oh, he's all for lowering corporate and wealthy income taxes, but don't ask him for a raise if you work slinging burgers in one of his restaurants.

Puzder and his wife gave a total of $332,000 to get Trump elected.

There's "trickle-down" for you.

I feel the same level of anxiety as I did after 9/11.

A man with no values, no morals, no honor is PEOTUS. He will still get money to executive produce his inane and stupid reality TV show. I'm sure they'll tape the next four years of shows at the WH.

We've been rooked! And of course GOP is lapping up. They love Trump!

I am waiting for him to appear in public in a military uniform, a la Commander in Chief.

Puzder would raise the pay.. of the robots being developed for fast food shacks.
