Long-legged, bottle-blonde flamethrower Ann Coulter appeared on Bill Maher’s show the other day (towering over him in flats). She came armed with her usual acidic tongue – this time aiming venom for a guy she once wrote about in a “book” titled “In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!” You see, Ann is thoroughly over the Orange Man for breaking his promise to build a wall for which Mexico would pay – an applause line Trump pulled out of his rectum whenever the pinheads at his rallies started to lose enthusiasm. Ann was so smitten over the wall that she overlooked the ridiculousness of the whole proposition.
It’s fascinating to watch Ann label Trump a “douchebag” and “wimp” now. She was one of the most early and prescient predictors of Trump’s election victory – to great derision at the time. Just watch her on Maher in 2015.
In any event, Coulter said some things on her most recent appearance that made much sense. She noted that illegal immigration and the cheap labor that accompanies it is “good for employers.” She calls out the Koch brothers and Rupert Murdoch as crass establishment Republicans who line up behind the anti-immigration crusade but secretly enjoy the benefits of cheap labor – presumably in the form of higher corporate profits when companies can avoid paying working wages.
Which brings us to another recent “shocker”: the Trump Organization has for years (decades?) been one such employer that benefits from cheap labor performed on the fairways and in the bathrooms of Trump golf properties by illegals.
The Washington Post reported that Trump Organization flaks had to bring down the hammer on more than a dozen undocumented workers now because the unseemliness of Trump’s hypocrisy had finally boiled over. Of course the firings had nothing to do with incompetence or insubordination. The Trump family even trusted these workers to hold the keys to Eric Trump’s weekend home – meaning they had to suffer the assault of shit-stained underwear strewn about and porn magazines sitting by the toilet, their lurid pages stuck together.
Quoted in the Post article, Eric the Redhand said, “We are making a broad effort to identify any employee who has given false and fraudulent documents to unlawfully gain employment. Where identified, any individual will be terminated immediately.” He added that it is one of the reasons “my father is fighting so hard for immigration reform. The system is broken.”
No shit. You and your slimy family are the reason it’s broken.
Turtle on the Cover
Yes. Mitch “the Turtle” McConnell actually consented to pose this way for last Sunday’s New York Times Magazine cover. Sad little Turtle.
Yes. And No.
If these two recently published books touch each other do they annihilate the universe?
