Michael Bloomberg says Democrats should “get behind” President Trump
I wouldn’t really be sad if El Trump-o dropped dead but I don’t want to kill him so I wouldn’t make any ‘get behind’ jokes.
As in the way folks got behind Qaddafi in Libya before they fucked him up.
From Kalanick’s leave of absence email:
For Uber 2.0 to succeed there is nothing more important than dedicating my time to building out the leadership team. But if we are going to work on Uber 2.0, I also need to work on Travis 2.0 to become the leader that this company needs and that you deserve.
What a joke. The guy who created the culture will be back like a bad yeast infection and those employees who behaved poorly but had to have been influenced by the culture Kalanick set up are fired.
From CNBC here:
“One of the things that I value about my father, as first a businessman and now as the leader of our country, is that he curates ideas and he likes to hear from people with divergent viewpoints. And that’s not always true in politics. It’s actually seldom true.”
First off, I don’t know what fucking planet Ivanka is on but I have seen the Orange Fucknut curating his Twatter account and not much else. He bullies these guys, he bullies these guys, he caves and then gets pissed, she’s so far off on this it’s funny.
Ivanka, honey, don’t break the pills in half, take the whole fucking pill because you need to come back to reality. And make sure your asshole dad takes his senior Geritol.
By the way, you are an accomplice, your own dad is using you to put a pretty face on all the horrible shit he traffics in. Deal with it instead of pretending.
From the Guardian here:
Uber has fired more than 20 employees after a company investigation into sexual harassment claims and workplace culture.
The terminations were announced at a company-wide meeting on Tuesday, details of which were first leaked to and reported by the New York Times and Bloomberg News. Uber confirmed the departures to the Guardian.
What a creative way to keep your job!
Kalanick founded Uber and is the one most responsible for its shitty culture yet he gets to keep his job.

Jesus, you’re head of the free world, can you stop it with the persecution complex and the complaining about how everybody is out to get you.
