Rise Of The Plutocrats
Of course, Puzder is proudly anti-organized labor, anti-minimum wage, anti-overtime, anti-unemployment insurance, anti-government assistance of any kind. He is the quintessential bottom line prick of a "boss" who sees employees as just another exploitable, replaceable resource, like a case of ketchup packets. And he'll be Labor Secretary. Goody!
Money (or the appearance of money) is all-important to the Cantaloupe Con Man, and although he refuses to release his tax returns, he desperately wants us to believe that he's fabulously wealthy. When it comes to his Cabinet picks, money is his scorecard there as well. Recently, he said he wants only "people who made a fortune." And he's certainly picked a lot of 'em so far.
Donnie Doom is still operating under the Gecko-esque delusion that greed is good, that money is its own reward, that wealth equals winning.
But money can't buy intelligence, class, empathy, ability or good taste. Trump and his Cabinet picks are proof of that.
