When Paul Ryan snapped that infamous intern selfie showing the lack of diversity on Capitol Hill, the internet immediately went into overdrive. It was one of those moments that Speaker Ryan would probably love to have back, along with that time he said “yes” to Mittens Romney. Big mistake, little hope of fixing it.
Big mistakes come with advantages sometimes. You can learn from them. Well…Some people can learn from them. Then there’s Donald Trump and his team of nitwits who are constitutionally incapable of learning anything. Kellyanne Conway, the new clueless face of the trump campaign, decided she’d go ahead and tweet out this picture of Team Trump:
Diversity, thy name is not Donald. The picture came along with the message, “@realDonaldTrump visits campaign war room today. First-class team.”
If this is the team that comes up with Trump’s strategy of hate everyone, let the imbeciles who vote for him sort it out, they certainly are first class. they’ve figured out how to mount a successful presidential campaign using no higher than a 4th-grade vocabulary , pandering to the lowest hanging fruit on the American tree. But that’s not really what stands out here, is it?
Donald Trump has spent the better part of a month calling Hillary Clinton a bigot and declaring himself the champion of all minorities. His daughter gave a speech at the RNC that sounded like she was introducing the man who would bring an end to the male dominance in American business and politics. This picture of the people Trump trusts most, his “war room,” is 75 percent male and 100% white. We don’t even get to play Where’s Waldo with it. there’s nothing but pink skin and privilege at this sausage party.
You have to particularly love the suck-up to Donald’s left with the dark suit and red power tie imitating the double thumbs up. He has a bright future of lap dogging ahead of him.
Paul Ryan is probably grinning ear to ear as he shakes his Eddie Munster head in disbelief.
