Today’s Donald Trump outrage from the left? He thinks only rich, successful people should be running the economy. Light thy torches. Sharpen thy pitchforks.
Take how easily triggered leftists are toward anyone who makes more money than them (see CEO Creates ‘Snowflake Test’ to Eliminate Wimpy Liberal Applicants and Former CEO of McDonald’s Schools #FightFor15 Whiners in Brilliant OpEd) and multiply it times 50 for Trump:
Remarkable clip from tonight where Trump explains why only rich people should be in charge of economic policy.

I love all people, rich or poor, but in those particular positions I just don’t want a poor person.”
“That’s the kind of thinking we want. You know really. They’re representing the country. They don’t want the money. They’re representing the country.”
“These are people that are great brilliant business minds. That’s what we need. That’s what we have to have so the world doesn’t take advantage of us.”
The left will find Trump’s appointment of rich business people more scandalous than eating a pet for brunch. But what Trump said is the foundation (and reason) for his election. No, it’s not teh illegalz or teh mooslims. Trump was elected on the belief people, usually lawyers, who have never run as much as a lawnmower, are running America into the ground. So along came Trump, who wasn’t a politician, and suddenly the pace change became an option. “Let’s elect and appoint successful people who HAVE run things.” What a concept.
It’s a concept some have theorized for years, but Trump was the first guy who cobbled together a campaign.
Appointing people who are good with money (the proof being they have a crap ton of it) to economic jobs makes all the sense in the world. Why would you appoint someone who knows nothing about money (a poor person who’s either terrible at making money, or an abysmal manager of it) to run a country’s commerce department? You wouldn’t. Bernie Sanders might, but we use Bernie Sanders as a human whoopee cushion. If you were wondering what was making that god awful noise.
You can bet Tess Holliday’s third chin the left will outrage over the idea. Not that their outrage is anything new.
