Atlantic writer: Trump administration ‘snowflakes’ get upset when anyone else ‘says it like it is’

Published

on

Sunday night, on MSNBC’s “Kasie D.C.” with Kasie Hunt, the panel mocked members of President Donald Trump’s administration — like EPA head Scott Pruitt — who keep getting caught spending lavishly on private planes, first class seats on commercial flights and luxury accommodations on the taxpayers’ dime.

“We live in a country where if you become a Cabinet secretary, you’re pretty much set for life,” said NBC national security reporter Ken Dilanian. “I’m not saying I agree with this, but you can monetize that and make millions of dollars and fly first class or private for the rest of your life.”

“Is it too much to ask for a little modesty and humility and caring what the taxpayers think for the brief time that they’re in office?” Dilanian continued. “What is it with these guys?”

Pruitt has claimed that he flies first class or in private planes because members of the public have approached him and been rude to him since he joined the Trump administration.

“That sounds a lot like he’s a ‘snowflake,'” Ioffe said. “The whole 2016 Trump campaign was about up-ending the whole stifling ‘PC culture’ and we just want to say it like it is. It sounds like they want to be the only ones saying it like it is, whereas minorities for example should not be saying it like it is.”

She went on to remind the panel of the story of the U.S. ambassador to China under President Barack Obama, who was spotted in the Beijing airport flying coach and carrying his own bags. The Russians, Ioffe said, found it ridiculous that a U.S. diplomat should travel “with the plebes” and not among the wealthy.

Published

The 2020 general election campaign between two top parties has unofficially been set.

"Joe Biden formally clinched the Democratic presidential nomination Friday, setting him up for a bruising challenge to President Donald Trump that will play out against the unprecedented backdrop of a pandemic, economic collapse and civil unrest," the AP reported Friday. "The former vice president has effectively been his party’s leader since his last challenger in the Democratic primary, Bernie Sanders, ended his campaign in April. But Biden pulled together the 1,991 delegates needed to become the nominee after seven states and the District of Columbia held presidential primaries Tuesday."

On Friday, President Donald Trump retweeted a video from right-wing commentator Glenn Beck, which appeared to question the wisdom of calling George Floyd a "hero" — and concurring with Black GOP commentator Candace Owens, who said it "sickens me" he is being "held up as a martyr."
