Are You Fucking Kidding Me? Rahm Emanuel Takes Wall Street Job Two Weeks After Begging The World To Hold Wealthy Elites Accountable

I gotta be careful here because I don’t want to get murdered by one of the most vindictive politicians of my life but at the same time I’d be a huge pussy if I didn’t point out that Rahm Emanuel literally just wrote a column called in the Atlantic two weeks ago titled “It’s Time to Hold American Elites Accountable for Their Abuses.” 

Some gems from the horse’s mouth:

America endured a war sold on false premises, a bailout of bankers issuing entirely toxic debt, and a massive public effort to prop up auto executives who were building cars that weren’t selling. Is it any wonder so many middle-class taxpayers resent the elites?

It’s literally NEVER been a wonder to anyone ever

America’s middle class is Cinderella, and the nation’s elites are her evil stepsisters—only now it’s the stepsisters who get to marry the prince. It’s infuriating.

Is the “Prince” a 7 figure payout on Wall Street by chance?

But beneath all of that was the American middle class’s belief that the Lori Loughlins and Felicity Huffmans of the world, let alone the Don Rumsfelds and Dick Fulds, aren’t asked to play by the same set of rules. The elite get all the breaks and are shown all the shortcuts. In the meantime, ordinary people are forced to pay full freight.

Define Ordinary, Rahm.

Seriously.

Would love to know his humble take on that.

The middle class believes even now that elites have license to make irresponsible decisions without paying a price.
*Actually laughs*

The guy behind those words climbed in bed with Ken Griffin (Chicago Billionaire) and the Pritzker Family (IL Billionaire Governor, several Billionaire siblings) from Day 1. He did everything he could to court the Rich & Wonderful across town while stockpiling non-Chicago people in major positions to keep the big national party happy. If the Democrats fix Chicago…. just think of the press!

It failed. Miserably.

The nation’s elite shouldn’t have any special license to take the easy way out.

Not that I’m a golden shower guy or anything – but you can piss on my head just don’t tell me it’s sunshine. Did I get that right?
