Trump Had A 'Policy Shop' And Surprise! He Didn't Pay 'Em

...and they all quit. And he got elected. And the Koch Brothers were ready.

This video is not work-safe.

Thank the TBS gods for Samantha Bee and her staff, putting out YouTube specials this week in order to keep us sane.

This one involves an actual Trump "Policy Shop" that existed sometime in April through early summer. Eventually the staff realized they were not going to get paid for their work and they all quit.

"These were serious people doing serious work. They were just used and abused and then neglected and discarded." says Josh Rogin of the Washington Post.

But hey, that's just fine. Paul Ryan has completely ready, the three things the Republicans were EVER going to do anyway:

1. Tax Cuts for Billionaires

2. De-regulation of fossil fuels and destroy the EPA

3. Screw everybody on Medicare and Obamacare.

Policy schmolicy, Donald, the Koch Brothers have you covered.
