Luls. Did the genius tweet about yet?

There are people who work in Walmart for 20 years and more?

Also, luls at the $7.25 minimum wage.

Would Nambia qualify as shithole status? :D

I've had him all wrong. Trump isn't anti-immigrant so much as he's pro-Norwegian.

U.S. ambassador to Panama resigns, says cannot serve Trump

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/us ... spartanntp

"As a junior foreign service officer, I signed an oath to serve faithfully the president and his administration in an apolitical fashion, even when I might not agree with certain policies," Feeley said, according to an excerpt of his resignation letter read to Reuters on Friday.
"My instructors made clear that if I believed I could not do that, I would be honor bound to resign. That time has come."

The Lowest White Man

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/11/opin ... emacy.html

Trumpism is a religion founded on patriarchy and white supremacy.
It is the belief that even the least qualified man is a better choice than the most qualified woman and a belief that the most vile, anti-intellectual, scandal-plagued simpleton of a white man is sufficient to follow in the presidential footsteps of the best educated, most eloquent, most affable black man.
As President Lyndon B. Johnson said in the 1960s to a young Bill Moyers: “If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.”
Trump’s supporters are saying to us, screaming to us, that although he may be the “lowest white man,” he is still better than Barack Obama, the “best colored man.”
In a way, Donald Trump represents white people’s right to be wrong and still be right. He is the embodiment of the unassailability of white power and white privilege.

Donald Trump’s Vile Words Should Remind Us That America Owes Everything to Haitians

https://theintercept.com/2018/01/12/hai ... a-history/

So no Haitian rebellion, no Louisiana Purchase; no Louisiana Purchase, and the U.S. would have been cooped up east of the Mississippi River, perhaps forever.

Nah. Manifest Destiny. The United States would,have cooked up a reason for a war with France and taken the land. Think of the Spanish/American and Mexican/American wars.
