Former Trump workers share a stage with Joe Biden -- and blast their ex-employer

https://twitter.com/TexasBluein20/status/1204962473696215040

For years, Sandra Diaz and Victorina Morales were undocumented and largely invisible employees of Donald Trump, domestics who laid out his golf clothes, served his meals and scrubbed his toilets, even as he took aim at illegal immigrants and Hispanics on the way to becoming president.

On Wednesday, the women held themselves up as symbols of what they called Trump’s hypocritical immigration policies as they received a standing ovation from Local 226, a culinary workers union that hosted three Democratic presidential candidates this week.

A short time after Morales and Diaz denounced their former employer Wednesday, they got a hug from one of Trump’s chief opponents,
former vice president Joe Biden, who was making his pitch to the largely Latino gathering of union workers.

“I’m going to tell you who is Mr. Trump,” Diaz told the crowd. “How he’s a big liar. .?.?. He still lies about immigrants. He says we are bad people. And I will stand here and say he lies, because we are good workers and good people.”

Trump supporters howl in rage after Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley calls them out

I agree with Daisy
https://twitter.com/RawStory/status/1204819679098920965

“Star Wars” actress Daisy Ridley doesn’t believe anyone can be both sane and a Donald Trump supporter.

The 27-year-old British actress, who plays the lead role in the final three chapters of the iconic sci-fi franchise, expressed some of her political views recently in an interview with The Guardian.

“No, I don’t feel I have to edit what I say,” Ridley told the newspaper. “The things that make me angry are the things that make everyone angry. Everyone is annoyed with BoJo (Boris Johnson). Everyone has an issue with Trump – every sane person, anyway."
