President Barack Obama’s former campaign manager trashed President Donald Trump’s cabinet for being filled with wealthy old white men during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” with Nicolle Wallace.

The host played a clip of Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross saying he couldn’t understand why furloughed government workers needed to use food banks during Trump’s shutdown.

“This is ten stations past out of touch,” Wallace explained. “That is cruel, that is despicable. What is wrong with them?”

“They haven’t ended the shutdown because they truly don’t care,” she said. “I think it is also a despicable lack of humanity. ”

“Eighty percent of people live paycheck to paycheck,” explained former Obama campaign manager Jim Messina. “This out-of-touch jerk has no idea.”

“And let’s be honest, it is just another bad part about having a cabinet that looks like the bar scene from Star Wars. These people are nut jobs,” he added.

“Whiter,” Wallace interjected.

“Whiter and much older,” Messina agreed.

“It’s not the bar scene from Star Wars, it’s the bar scene from Caddyshack,” suggested New York Times reporter Nick Confessore.

Trump received two nominations, he has never won a Nobel Peace Prize.

"And my only complaint is, I should have gotten about seven or eight, because if you knew some of the other things -- some of the other things I have done much better," Trump argued, despite having not won the award a single time. "I should have gotten seven."

Published

on

President Donald Trump announced Saturday that he would nominate Amy Coney Barrett to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s vacant Supreme Court seat. Trump made his pick official during an event at the White House Rose Garden.

“As Amy has said, being a judge takes courage. You are not there to decide cases as you may prefer, you are there to do your duty, and to follow the law, wherever it may take you. That is exactly what Judge Barrett will do on the U.S. Supreme Court.”

He continued: “No matter the issue, no matter the case before her. I am supremely confident that Judge Barrett will issue rulings based solely upon a fair reading of the law. She will defend the sacred principle of equal justice for citizens of every race, color, religion and creed.”
