This is what Trump's rhetoric has unleashed


People such as Pamela Ramsey Taylor and Beverly Whaling should be publicly shamed for their disgusting comments:
Racist post about Michelle Obama causes backlash. The Mainichi November 15, 2016, http://mainichi.jp/english/articles/20161115/p2g/00m/0in/041000c

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- The director of a West Virginia development group and a mayor are under scrutiny after a racist post about first lady Michelle Obama caused a backlash and prompted calls on social media for both women to be fired.

Clay County Development Corp. director Pamela Ramsey Taylor made the post following Donald Trump's election as president, saying: "It will be refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady in the White House. I'm tired of seeing a Ape in heels."

Clay Mayor Beverly Whaling responded: "Just made my day Pam."
Meanwhile, US House Republicans are calling for the newly created "Fiduciary Rule" to be repealed because they don't want financial advisers to be required by law to put their customers' interests before their own firms' interests. 

After all, the rule is expected to reduce the financial profits of the industry by approximately $17 billion a year as it prohibits conflicts of interest in financial advice:

So much for the Republican revolution in favor of Main Street.

  1. The amount of brain washing and disconnection from reality in this election has been extraordinary.
