Man, you've gotta love US politics!
The book records Murdoch's reply: "Donald, for eight years these guys [Silicon Valley honchos] had Obama in their pocket. They practically ran the administration. They don't need your help."Everybody knows government is not the executive committee for the bourgeosie, uh Brad?
Trump is quoted as saying the companies "really need these H-1B visas".
Wolff writes that Murdoch suggested a more liberal stance on H-1B visas would sit oddly with Trump's hardline stance on immigration, to which the president-elect replied: "We'll figure it out."
Wolff writes that Murdoch shrugged as he got off the phone, and said: "What a fucking idiot." (Here)
06-/01/2018. Amid a desert storm of denials from most of those quoted by Michael Wolff, The Donald and the White House came out really hard, all guns blazing -- like, well, all fire and fury -- on him, his book, and Steve Bannon. And then, according to the news, The Donald called his personal lawyer, Mr. Harder. Yup, that's right.
Shock and awe, man.
American politics is way better than fiction and it's all for free! Whoever said capitalism sucks?
