Donald Trump: Champion of the Working Class (time to harpoon this whale)

So Don is now the hero and advocate of the working class. Or does he merely have a big blowhole for a mouth? He is going to be sure Blacks and Hispanics get high wages. He believes that they are not making enough. Outsourcing and trade deals are the villains.

What's so great about Edison?

Thom, I just have to wonder what's so great about last century's Donald Trump?
I know the controversy is decades dead, but it is beyond doubt the whole Menlo park was a stable of young inventors whom Edison paid salary to in exchange for the patents and the glory.
