    More hyperbolic bullshit from the left wing media. He didn't say he'd 'make' them work as janitors, he suggested that kids from poor backgrounds could voluntarily work. What an outrageous thing to do! Encourage kids to learn about work ethics early!

    Actually, thinking about it... I can understand why the left would not like this. Teaching a work ethic early, instead of teaching an 'entitlement attitude'. Goes against the left's belief in keeping the poor, poor.

    No, what he did was AVOID working.

    And, I dare you to prove he "worked harder than half this nation". That's a ridiculous thing to say but very like something Noot himself would say.

    He's a lying hypocrite.

    Anyone surprised?
