Imagine if a business establishment told those who voted for Hillary Clinton that "you have no place here" and demanded their resignations. There would be wall-to-wall press coverage, calls for a boycott, street protests at company headquarters, and years of payback in the form of "diversity" and "sensitivity" training.

The election has passed, and the American people gave the spoiled celebrities of Hollywood the heave-ho. Despite all of their earnest YouTube lectures and pro-Hillary concerts and campaign appearances, the next president is Donald Trump.

When you’re in the real world, you have to work for a living. But when you’re in the coddled special snowflake millennial world (or maybe a liberal campus), you can work with all of the amenities of a five-star hotel. Because, as we all know, no job can be done without a frozen yogurt machine.
