Trump To Be Advised On 'Women In The Workplace' By Two Dudes. Your Open Thread!

Education

And you thought the Trump administration didn't care about the women folk! Well, they are going to show you!

In a meeting that will be part of the “President’s Strategic and Policy Forum,” Trump will be advised on the issue of "women in the workplace" by Walmart CEO Doug McMillon, and Ernst and Young CEO Mark Weinberger. Who, you may have noticed, are both men. Because why would this be a thing Trump would want to talk to women about? That would just be silly. He knows more about women than all the women. After all, he does own the Miss Universe pageant!

This comes on the heels of report yesterday from Axios that Trump expects the women who work for him to "dress like a woman."

Trump likes the women who work for him "to dress like women," says a source who worked on Trump's campaign. "Even if you're in jeans, you need to look neat and orderly." We hear that women who worked in Trump's campaign field offices — folks who spend more time knocking on doors than attending glitzy events — felt pressure to wear dresses to impress Trump.

It has yet to be revealed what they'll be discussing, but I have some ideas of what might come up!

- Chasing your secretary around your desk in order to try and pinch her on the butt -- still cool or nah?

- How to convince your female employees that joining a union could make them go sterile and grow a mustache.

- Determining which female employees won't sue you for just for calling them "toots."

- How to talk to a woman so that her tiny female brain can understand you!

- Encouraging ladylike behavior, like never trying to find out what her male peers are making.

- How paying women less can help to encourage them to stay home and make babies.

- Why letting your wife work is a very dangerous thing, because you won't be able to think of her as a woman anymore and you'll hear her on the phone being all business-like and it will be gross.

- Dressing Like A Woman 101: Why Your Boss Needs A Better View Of Your Rack

- Maternity leave, shmaternity leave.

- Tic-tacs! The sexual harassment lawsuit preventer!

The possibilities, truly, are endless!

Is there ANY good news for the bumblefucking Trump re-election campaign these days? Their polling numbers are in the shitter, therefore Trump is firing the pollsters. Trump's Hitler rally kickoff event in Florida last night was ... whatever it was. Oh, and did we mention that they ain't got no money? Like, of course, not counting whatever Russian money they're not telling us about.

Don Jr. recently called a prominent donor and warned that Trump's money haul is falling behind where Barack Obama was early in his reelection, while Jared Kushner has privately complained to RNC chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel that Trump's war chest is not as big as it should be at this point in the cycle.

Whiiiiiiiiiine. Guess they're gonna have to see if they can launder some rubles somewhere, ALLEGEDLY.

Gabe Sherman has some more bad news about Trump's shithole campaign, and it is that Robert and Rebekah Mercer, the father-daughter billionaire duo who bankrolled much of Trump's "victory" in 2016 -- including funding Breitbart, and also the part of the "victory" that comprised Cambridge Analytica, the data company they owned that may have done some real hinky stuff, possibly with Russia, in order to get Trump "elected" -- have zipped up their checkbooks and decided Trump can go eat dicks for all they care.
