On Tuesday Donald Trump managed to drag himself away from his luxury Mar-A-Lago Resort in Palm Beach, Florida. He ventured all the way to Wisconsin to visit the Snap-On Tools facility in Kenosha. And it’s taking every bit of self-control I have not to make a joke about Trump being a snap-on tool.
The purpose of the visit was to disgorge some prefab propaganda about how concerned he is about creating jobs. The first order of business was another of his patented reality TV ceremonial Executive Order signings. This one was ostensibly to encourage more buying of American products and hiring of American workers. However, anyone who has followed Trump’s business dealings knows what a hypocritical crock that is. Most of the products he and his family make are manufactured in China or other overseas factories. What’s more, he routinely hires foreign workers at his golf resorts and wineries.
Count on the Twitter community to be up to speed on this sort of duplicity. It didn’t take long for them to fully document Trump’s record of brazen deceit. Here is Trump’s tweet touting his visit and a few examples of the smack down he suffered:
