What do you get when you put a bunch of billionaires in a room? Well, Donald Trump has done a good job in helping us find out. Trump has stocked his Cabinet with billionaires. They are work $14 billion to be exact. They include, to name just a few, Linda McMahon (srsly), BETSY DEVOS (Ugh, I’m eating here), and Wilbur Ross.
Well, if you’re trying to build an economy, why not hire a bunch of people that understand business? I mean, that’s the same thing as building the country, right? I mean, you wouldn’t want someone who’s going to stand up for women’s rights or a living wage or something like that. A living wage? That would cost more! They didn’t get rich by spending money, c’mon. Okay, so they did have to spend money. It’s called an investment.
Ugh, alright, clearly I don’t support stocking the Cabinet full of billionaires, but y’all are business so let’s get to the point.
I’m a nice guy. I think. Some people think so, anyway (hi mom). If you gave me a billionaire dollars today, I don’t instantly become bad. It takes time. It’s what you do with that money that makes someone good or bad, or how much you value money or what power you think that gives you. Dare I say that they think they’re “entitled” because they’re rich, a term often used by them about the less fortunate? Seriously, it’s hilarious. They think they can do whatever they want. Isn’t that synonymous with feeling entitled.
However, Donald Trump never said he wouldn’t stock the Cabinet with billionaires. He said he’d “drain the swap” of career politicians. You might hate both groups (maybe not), but that’s what he said. He even said he was going to create a lobbying ban, and he did, and term limits, but he certainly hasn’t done that. Those are good things. I hate the man, but I’m all about the truth. He wants to “drain the swamp,” and the “swamp” he’s referring to is Congress, not the Cabinet.
