This is all you ever wanted to know about the “best people” Trump chose to run our lives.
Trump ran for president as a populist who said he understood the plight of the common man. Never mind that he was raised wealthy, went to top schools, built his business with several hundred million dollars from his father, and spent his life in New York City hobnobbing with celebrities and literally living in a golden tower.
When he became president, he filled his Cabinet with fellow billionaires, almost assuring that they would not understand the struggles of the average American.
The latest example came Thursday morning, on the eve of federal employees missing their second paycheck, when Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said, “I don’t really quite understand why” federal workers are visiting food banks for meals. He suggested they instead take out loans.
And with a few bucks left over, they could all go in together on a few tumbrels.
