President Barack Obama is already leaving for his final, taxpayer-funded vacation before his term in office is over. Must be nice. On the other hand, his soon-to-be-former staffers can’t find work anywhere in President-elect Trump’s Washington, D.C.
I guess it’s because American voters rejected these commies? Democrats are now suffering the greatest losses in a generation. As they say, payback is a B. Since Hillary isn’t there, no one is available to hire them. Mira Patel, a longtime Clinton aide who went from her Senate office to the State Department told Politico:
It feels like there are just thousands of us trying to find a job, and there are no jobs.
Julian Ha, who heads up the government affairs and trade association practice at the executive search firm Heidrick & Struggles stated:
Clients are all pivoting, and they’re all frankly trying to figure it out just like we all are right now. My prediction is that there certainly will be a more robust demand for folks who are from the Republican side of the aisle, and especially [those] close to folks who are now being selected for key positions
Then, there are some Obama staffers who are trying to use their White House experience to get private sector jobs. Except, Democrats suffered huge losses under Obama’s watch. One administration official said he was already in deep negotiations with two tech companies in early November. Although, after the election “there was a pretty clear about-face.”
One of the tech companies’ offices got in touch the day after the election “stating that they needed to ‘re-scope the role in light of the results.’” The other company, the official said, was “far less euphemistic in saying we need Republicans, not Democrats.”
Now, a former Google HR executive is trying to get 100 employers–including Facebook and Netflix–to take a look at campaign staffers left jobless after Election Day. Because, why should they try to find a real job somewhere else in America.
Trump has talked repeatedly about “draining the swamp.” He’s already accomplishing that and much more before the inauguration. He didn’t even have to say, “You’re Fired!”
