It has been just another Friday in Trump’s America. During a week supposedly dedicated to jobs for Americans, the Trump organization applied for H2B visas for cooks, housekeepers, and servers.  Presumably there are no Americans whatsoever who qualify for these positions.

On Thursday, the Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, said it wanted to hire 15 housekeepers for $10.33 an hour; 20 cooks for $13.34 an hour; and 35 servers for $11.88 an hour. The Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Florida, was asking for six cooks to hire for $13.34 per hour. These requests are published in a database updated by the Department of Labor.

Social media this week was peppered with photos of Trump goods with “made in” tags from everywhere but here.

Two rogue waves crashed on the National Mall Friday.  Anthony Scaramucci, allegedly a close Trump friend, was named Director of White House Communications. In close succession, Sean Spicer, who has been doing that job while Sarah Huckabee Sanders filled in for him in the press room, abruptly resigned. So there’s that.


Spicey Bails, White House Flails, As Mooch Prevails

Well you can just imagine how conveniently all of this drama played into the week’s theme! All agendas on cable news were thrown into chaos as all awaited a live, on camera press briefing, something once routine and, after six months of Trump, a phenomenon. Filling time with screens split between studios and the press room the topic was the new director. If you wonder why I used the word “allegedly” above, it is because, for all the hype about what a “Trump guy” he is, the Daily Beast ran these stories.

President Trump’s new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, once called his new boss a “hack politician” engaging in “anti-American” rhetoric. In August 2015, then-candidate Trump railed against “hedge-fund guys paying nothing” in taxes. During an appearance on the Fox Business Network that same day, Scaramucci, lamented how “another hack politician,” whose remarks “anti-American and divisive.” Scaramucci additionally quipped: “I’ll tell you who he’s going to be president of—you can tell Donald I said this—the Queens County Bullies Association.”

Anthony Scaramucci deleted tweets in which he previously criticized Donald Trump hours after accepting his new job as White House communications director on Friday.

Scaramucci also previously expressed support for his boss’s old rivals, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama—even donating money to their campaigns.

Ahhhhh! You knew something here was going to come around to Hillary, didn’t you?  Well that’s not all!

President Trump was 20 words into his recent interview with the New York Times when he raised a topic that he seemingly can’t resist: Hillary Clinton.“Hi fellas, how you doing?” he said to the three Times reporters, two of whom were fellas. Then, asked about his meeting on health care with Republican senators, he continued. “It was good. We are very close. It’s a tough — you know, health care. Look, Hillary Clinton worked eight years in the White House with her husband as president and having majorities and couldn’t get it done. Smart people, tough people — couldn’t get it done.”
In 17 of 19 of his interviews, Clinton came up, on average about 36 percent of the way in. That’s more frequently and earlier than his mentions of Obama, who made it into only 16 interviews, about 43 percent of the way in.

So if you were wondering why Hillary’s name keeps coming up in the news – there you go! Trump cannot stop talking or tweeting about her.

To wrap up “Made in America Week” then, and I hesitate as there are more then two hours to go until midnight EDT on the east coast, Carrier began cutting jobs this week. How’s all that winning going?
