Fucking Grocery Stores, How Do They Work?

Economic populist and enemy of the out-of-touch American elites Donald Trump explains that not getting paid is no big deal even if you’re living paycheck to paycheck:

In an interview that aired two weeks ago on PBS, Kevin Hassett, the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, suggested that furloughed workers were fortunate to be on vacation without having to use vacation days. “And then they come back, and then they get their back pay. Then they’re — in some sense, they’re better off,” he said.

Trump himself has been unable to feign empathy for the 800,000 federal employees who haven’t been paid in more than a month, or the hundreds of thousands of government contractors who likely won’t be paid at all. Earlier this month he retweeted a Daily Caller piece, ostensibly by an anonymous member of his own administration, arguing that the work of most federal employees is worthless. “We do not want most employees to return, because we are working better without them,” it said. On Thursday afternoon, Trump told reporters that grocery stores will “work along” with people who can’t pay for food.

Indeed, the local Wal-Mart or Meijer probably has your name in a box of index cards with a tab and doesn’t even have to ask your name! Everyone knows that. Who needs to get paid, really?

Goldberg’s column has more examples of similar empathy from Trump’s proletarian associates, although the intervention of Mr. Dow 36,000 is a nice death-of-parody touch.
