Farmers Reel After Sonny Perdue Mocks Them As 'Whiners' Amid Trade War Bankruptcies.

'Minnesota Farmers Union president calls the agriculture secretary’s dig “very insensitive. It took everyone by surprise.”

America’s farmers have apparently been demoted by the Trump administration from “great patriots” to “whiners,” according to a tone-deaf joke by Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue. Farmers, struggling with plunging income and bankruptcies amid President Donald Trump’s trade war, were stunned.

Perdue made the joke while getting heat last week from Minnesota farmers complaining about, among other things, the latest blow to their businesses from the trade war. China has canceled all purchases of U.S. farm products in retaliation for Trump’s decision to impose 10% tariffs on $300 billion in Chinese imports.'>>>

6. His sexual desires for Ivanka "are" himself also.

She's not even a separate person in his mind.

4. After Trump lost the Iowa caucus in early 2016

despite being ahead in the polls, Trump called the people of Iowa stupid.

He then won the "stupid" people of Iowa by 10 points in the general election.

8. Wonder how many times

He and trump will kick them in their teeth before they realize these people are liars and could care less about them. Their funding he claimed would help them was 99% of it going to the wealthiest farmers , giving them very little. Maybe they'll learn they can't be trusted, and if they don't vote against them it will get a lot worse .
