Lawrence Says It Perfectly: 'Here's Trump Lying His A** Off'

Trump trashes Chuck Jones, Carrier Steelworkers Union Rep. because, why not?
Views:

Never in our history have we needed our media to step up like they've never done before. In fact, since the Fourth Estate failed to properly condemn the horrible behavior of Trump during the election, they owe us, big time.

We are thankful that we have MSNBC's "The Last Word." Lawrence O'Donnell discussed Trump's Twitter tirade against United Steelworkers Union, 1999 Leader, Chuck Jones. He used Chuck's own words: "He was lying his ass off" about saving over 1,100 jobs in Carrier's Indiana factory. The consequences of Jones speaking truth to power, unfortunately, are much like a third world dictatorship, where the tyrant's goon squad immediately retaliates against dissent. Banana Republic is no longer just a clothing store in America.

Chuck Jones has received death threats to himself and his family. Class. Just class.

Twitter also noted that the union workers were supposed to accept a pay cut amounting to less than $6.00 per hour without any benefits. Trump is really the guy who really wants to help the American worker, right?

Obviously, our distinguished media never thought this man could possibly win and wanted a horse race, so they trashed his opponent. The foregone conclusion that Hillary Clinton would emerge victorious in a Pyrrhic fashion was universal, and no one pondered that we'd be in such a quandary now.

Thankfully, a few folks, who appear either on weekend (Joy Reid) or evening MSNBC, including Lawrence O'Donnell and Rachel Maddow, were never on board with this tyrant. We must continue to rely on them to help call attention to the daily atrocities of this dreadful administration and keep us from complacency.
