I was reading a news article on the decision of Puzder to withdraw from his opportunity to be labor secretary and the following stuck me:
1: A number of years ago its was no big deal to have an illegal immigrant doing domestic duties in your house. This was not limited to high rollers but to middle class families hiring a person to do once weekly house cleaning duties. This practice even got in what some people consider an erosion of jobs the teenagers used to perform now are performed by illegal immigrants.
No repercussions were applied to businesses (until a few years ago) and none were applied against the middle class. This sudden shock and shame is only aimed at high end people. To me this is class envy as practiced by the Obama administration.
2: The media’s claim of domestic violence as claimed by the former wife in her domestic violence by Puzder was shown to be a legal ploy by her divorce lawyers in order get a bigger settlement. The wife admitted to this years ago and has been completely ignored because it doesn’t fit their narrative.
This is a political lynching and the left has jumped on board as they tried to do with Clarence Thomas years ago.
I’m so sick of both the political infighting in Washington and the politicalization of the news that it is disgusting. We don’t have cross party discussions and can’t trust the media to get a story right.
