For all our sakes let’s hope he doesn’t show up at this job, either.


#3

Of all Trumps examples of not knowing what he is doing, this would be my favorite if there weren’t actual people dying from the inaction of this person.


#4

Lemme guess, the kid was born into wealth.


#5

Yes, I presume that’s also how you become a “legal assistant” at a white-shoe legal firm in NYC despite not having been to law school.


#6

While I agree in spirit, my fear is that is exactly what Turnip wants…


#7

He could have saved a bunch of toner on his resume by simply reporting that he was what is known (in business parlance) as a bum.


#8

Maybe he prepared the coffee there.


#9

…or might have, had he showed up.


#10

Haha! I missed that detail. Next question is how did Daddy make his money?


#11

Partially from ownership of a

chia seed factory (which closed when his dad went to jail for illegally processing Mexican steroids)

Something from the Robocop sequel thread is appropriate:

Future US president 2040?

buffy-sad


#14

Wow these folks are like the prime examples of why you don’t let rich people run anything. They all ooze mediocrity.

Mediocrity is when someone does a meh job.

When someone doesn’t even bother to show up and then lists a long tenure in that position on their resume for a White House position, the word is mendacity.

So true, and one of my favorites. Gotta rewatch Cat on a Hot Tin Roof


#18

Lucky you! Cat is coming on NTLive!

For once Cory’s headline please me, as it implies that his job at the ONDCP isn’t a real job.

Wow - thanks! Found a few local venues, too.
