What else can they do? OPM is getting fucked over just as hard as everybody else. Pointing out how ridiculous the situation has become is about the limit of their power.

Fake news! Everybody’s happy! See?

if you can’t afford rent, hire an attorney? that sounds awfully close to the modern “let them eat cake”. :unamused:

Just get your servants to do the manual labor for you?

But many of those workers have said to me and communicated, stay out until you get the funding for the wall. These federal workers want the wall. The only one that doesn’t want the wall are the Democrats, because they don’t mind open borders, but open borders mean massive amounts of crime
-Donny Trump

The press needs to stop misquoting him. What he said was “But Manny, of those workers, has said…”
Manny Peebles is Trumps personal friend and advises him on domestic affairs. Manny Peebles supports the wall. Twitter removed Manny Peebles from his account. Manny Peebles said it was wonderful that Mrs. Obama refused to wear a scarf in Saudi Arabia. Manny Peebles said France wasn’t France anymore. Manny speaks to Trump on a wide range of topics.
