Desperate Dems Discovering What Make America Great Again Means the Hard Way
Hillary Clinton campaigned on continuing Barack Obama's "successful legacy." Every time Donald Trump said "Make America great again!" liberals crowed about how great America was. Liberal memes touting the Obama economy polluted Facebook for months. Just about the only person on the left who admitted that Americans were struggling anywhere was Bernie Sanders.
Regular Americans knew better, and now Democrats are learning it's hard out there. Via Politico:
The job market is about to get even more crowded for Washington Democrats, as thousands of Obama appointees join the hundreds of Clinton campaign staffers looking for employment.
There’s rarely been less demand for their services.
The Trump tornado is tearing up post-election planning around the Beltway. It’s not just that those 4,000 administration jobs are no longer available to Hillary for America alumni, or that failed Senate candidates like Russ Feingold and Katie McGinty won’t be able to hire their staff on the Hill. There are also the lobbying firms, trade associations and corporate government affairs offices that are pitching senior Obama aides’ resumes into the round file while scrambling to hire operatives with Republican connections.
It’s insult to injury for a generation of young operatives who are still managing their shock and grief from Hillary Clinton’s loss. And for those who want to fight to keep President Barack Obama’s legacy from being erased, there aren’t a lot of places ready to pay them to do it.
It's like the economy isn't as good in the rest of America as it is in Washington D.C. Who knew?
