The GOP has taken over the House, the Senate and the White House.
That leaves a lot of Democrats out in the cold and scrambling for jobs.
Thousands of Obama loyalists are struggling to find work in a city now dominated by the GOP, according to a report from Politico. “It feels like there are just thousands of us trying to find a job, and there are no jobs,” Mira Patel, a longtime Clinton aide told Politico.
Democratic operatives and Obama staffers no longer have the more than 4,000 presidential appointed jobs to transition to after President-elect Trump takes office.
Politico describes how a generation of young operatives from the Hillary Clinton campaign and failed down-ballot races are still managing their “shock and grief” from Clinton’s loss.
They’re still in denial.
What will they do?
They may have to move away from their cushy positions and find real jobs, perish the thought!
But at least they’re no longer suffering from job lock.
Now maybe they know a little of what the rest of us have felt under the Obama Presidency.
They are now free to pursue their greater interests, be a writer or photographer, as Rep. Nancy Pelosi counsels.
Now, they can pursue their own happiness!
They could even move to paradises like Venezuela or Cuba and find work in a place that fully embraces socialism or communism.
