Made in America Hypocrisy
Posted by Mary Catherine Dunphy (+1269) 29 days ago
Here we go again. More Trump family hypocrisy on display.

This week, the Trump White House is promoting "Made in America" week.

Yet, in a recent article in the Washington Post reported that Ivanka Trump's clothing, handbags and shoes are made in Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia and Vietnam. And, also not too surprising, is the fact that the workers are not paid well.

"The Post also interviewed workers at three garment factories that have made Trump products who said their jobs often come with exhausting hours, subsistence pay and insults from supervisors if they don’t work fast enough."

“My monthly salary is not enough for everyday expenses, also not for the future,” said a 26-year-old sewing operator in Subang, Indonesia, who said she has helped make Trump dresses."

Yet, Ivanka also promotes herself as an advocate for working women.

"During a trip this spring with her father to Saudi Arabia, she told a group of Saudi female leaders that she aims “to help empower women in the United States and around the globe.”

Apparently, President Trump's companies also outsource to other countries.

So, I'm thinking the "Made in America" events at the White House this week are mostly a dog and pony show!

So, once again, "Wake Up, America!" The Trumps do not have your best interests at heart! Their bottom line is their bottom line! That's all!

Trump is such a flaming a$$hole, it astonishes me on a daily basis how 40 percent of our dimwitted public (shout out to the Man from the Snowy Plains!) continues to support him.

The latest....throwing his own attorney general, Beauregard Secessions, under the bus:

Note: He has been AG for less than 6 months! Bill Clinton hated Janet Reno, but he never threw her under the bus.

The meltdown of our federal government is priceless. Rick Kuchynka, if you ever glance here anymore, I congratulate you on your victory. The dissolution of the federal government must be a wonderful thing for the anti-government wing of the Republican party to behold.
