Here’s another interesting item that Dan McGowan found for Nesi’s Notes this weekend:
So what did Senator Whitehouse think of his big dinner with Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump earlier this month? “They live well,” Whitehouse told reporters this week. “Really big house. Very fancy food.”
Ah, yes. Sheldon Whitehouse, man of the people, with his $535,000 annual income and $2.7 million Newport mansion.
I’ve heard it said that there is no class difference so confounding as that between the rich and extremely rich. The appropriate response of the rest of us, though, should probably be to laugh at them all… and insist that they implement policies that empower us to take their money through commerce and competition, not government redistribution that buys them a dependent underclass.
