With all of Donald Trump's xenophobic racist huffing and puffing about border walls and Mexican rapists and marauding caravans, would you have ever imagined that he employed undocumented workers at his trash palaces? (Yes. One million times yes.)

The New York Times published a hell of a story today, in which Victorina Morales, a housekeeper at Trump's Bedminster resort in New Jersey, and who is undocumented, is speaking out even though she knows full well she will probably lose her job and maybe even get deported for doing so. (NYT notes that Morales has applied for asylum, so Trump maybe will put her in a baby jail.) She's hurt and freaked out by Trump's anti-immigrant rhetoric, and she's being very brave telling her story like this. God bless her.


Ms. Morales said she has been hurt by Mr. Trump's public comments since he became president, including equating Latin American immigrants with violent criminals. It was that, she said, along with abusive comments from a supervisor at work about her intelligence and immigration status, that made her feel that she could no longer keep silent.

"We are tired of the abuse, the insults, the way he talks about us when he knows that we are here helping him make money," she said. "We sweat it out to attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation."

THAT'S RIGHT, MS. MORALES, YOU SAY IT.

This is a tragic story that has funny parts, so we will try to tell you some of both. Morales is from Guatemala, and she's worked at Bedminster since 2013. The Times reports that she's so damn good at her job that the White House Communications Agency gave her a special certificate recognizing her service.

She came to America illegally in 1999, and her former coworker Sandra Diaz did too. They say that if you walked around Bedminster saying "PAPERS PLEASE" you wouldn't get very many papers, at least not real ones.

Morales has worked up close and personal with Trump, including while he has been president, dusting the sconces and whatnot while he beaches his svelte body on the furniture and plays on Twitter. She says one time, before he was president, he dusted part of a window for her because she was too short to reach it. After he was done, he was even nice to her:

Mr. Trump then asked Ms. Morales her name and where she was from, she recalled. "I said, 'I am from Guatemala.' He said, 'Guatemalans are hard-working people.'" The president then reached into his pocket and handed her a $50 bill.

That's a far cry from the dude who says it's a "NATIONAL EMERGY" that VIOLENT HORDES IN TERRIFYING CARAVANS FROM GUATEMALA let UNKNOWN MIDDLE EASTERNS join their TERRIFYING CARAVANS because everybody knows that EMIRATES AIRLINES runs VERY GOOD SPECIALS on ONE-WAY TICKETS from ARAB TOWN to THE CARAVAN.

Another time, he pulled a super creeper move and made her watch while he rubbed his tiny stub finger through an area she had already cleaned. Satisfied, he gave her a big tip that time too. Fuckin' weirdo.

Here is what Ms. Morales has done for Trump, while cleaning his residence at the resort and washing his unmentionables:

She said she washed and ironed Mr. Trump's white boxers, golf shirts and khaki trousers, as well as his sheets and towels.

Ew, you just knew he wore big giant stinky pee-stained white old man boxers, didn't you?

Mr. Trump had an outburst over some orange stains on the collar of his white golf shirt, which Ms. Diaz described as stubborn remnants of his makeup, which she had difficulty removing.

That's right, THAT NASTY ORANGE SHIT ON HIS FACE IS MAKE-UP. And he gets it on his ugly shirts and his ugly panties and probably all over the sconces too.

How did Ms. Morales get hired in the first place? She used fake papers. And when Trump became president and everybody was like "Uh oh, better start pretending like we've been doing this by the book the whole entire time" and employees were encouraged to get real papers? They bought updated fake papers. Why? According to Ms. Morales, that's what her supervisor told her to do.

Reached for comment about how Trump employs all kinds of undocumented immigrants while being the most white supremacist president ever, the Trump Organization said "Nuh uh." (Paraphrase.) The White House didn't even say that much.

As we noted above, Morales and former Bedminster employee Diaz are speaking out because they and other immigrant employees of Trump's property are horrified by how Trump speaks of them, and how they feel he's encouraging others to do the same. Morales mentions another supervisor who "frequently made remarks about the employees' vulnerable legal status when critiquing their work, she said, sometimes calling them 'stupid illegal immigrants' with less intelligence than a dog." How classy.

Morales also says there is zero fucking chance in hell Donald Trump has been blissfully unaware of her undocumented status, or that of her fellow employees. She probably said, "OH COME THE FUCK ON," but the New York Times didn't write that and we don't know how to type it in Spanish, so ...

Anyway, GO READ THE WHOLE THING, as they say on the internet.

And say your thoughts 'n' prayers for Ms. Morales, that the president of the United States doesn't deport this lovely woman who's served him so well for so many years, just because he's mad everybody knows about his Makeup McUnderpants now.

Diaz has legal residency now, so she's probably cool, but say thoughts 'n' prayers for her too.

We have now made you sad, so it is time for your OPEN THREAD!

Happy Sunday!

In case you hadn't heard -- last week, Glenn Beck's BlazeTV merged with CRTV to form an unholy voltron of right-wing drivel. Yes, for $10 a month you can watch a bunch of low budget talk shows that all appear to be mostly the same low-budget show, featuring a variety of mostly rando conservatives you've never heard of. Except for the racist guy from that duck show, whom you have heard of but probably forgot about entirely. I know I did!

The rumors WERE true after all! John Kelly will be getting "You're Fired" retiring at the end of the year. The news of Trump and Kelly's divorce comes after months of speculation that the two had suffered irreconcilable political differences. As with previous failed marriages of convenience, Trump will keep everything, including the White House, and leave his former partner with only a crushed soul, an non-disclosure agreement, and a lifetime of regrets.
