Someone for Everyone to Hate

Aug 31, 2015

He has called Mexicans “rapists” and “drug dealers.” He has called women “slobs,” “fat,” and “ugly,” and made it clear he only values them as sex objects. He has made fun of Asians for not speaking English properly. And he tries to come off like an ordinary macho guy, a “straight shooter” about why the economy sucks for ordinary people.

But this pompous hypocrite is no ordinary guy, no straight shooter. He made his billions as one of the top exploiters of workers, including thousands of immigrant women working in his hotels. His racist, sexist lies serve the bosses by encouraging workers to blame each other for the problems the bosses cause. While we’re fighting each other, he’ll be laughing all the way to the bank.
