Surprise! Trump's 'Economic Council' Is All Men, All White

He has the political instincts of a founding father, all right.

So Donald Trump's "council of economic advisors" announced this week all White.

It is also a total sausage fest.

And while statements released from his campaign over the past 48 hours have attempted to appear more sane than previously, you cannot prevent Donald from using every opportunity to brag about himself.

Donald Trump's campaign on Friday announced more than a dozen members of the Republican nominee's all-male economic advisory team, including several prominent real-estate investors, hedge-fund managers and bankers.

The announcement comes ahead of Trump's speech Monday at the Detroit Economic Club, where the Republican nominee is expected to lay out his agenda for the American economy.

...Trump said in a statement released by his campaign.."For too long we have watched as President Obama and Hillary Clinton have ruined our economy and decimated the middle class. I am going to be the greatest jobs President our country has ever seen. We will do more for the hardworking people of our country and Make America Great Again.”

I'm guessing Ted Cruz's "running mate" Carly Fiorina, who has not yet endorsed Trump, ahem, didn't return his "phone call."

Whaddya know. Carly was right.
