The Apprenti: Trump and Gingrich Will Save the Economy By Hiring Ten Black Kids to Scrub Toilets

Abby Zimet

Not content with declaring child labor laws "stupid" and poor kids and the adults around them only familiar with illegal activities, Newt Gingrich and fellow clueless, pasty, amoral, rich white guy Donald Trump have announced a plan to make ten poor kids in New York apprentices in some uplifting work like cleaning up after white people in order to "get them into the world of work...and into the habit of showing up and realizing that effort gets rewarded" - and allow Trump yet another chance to shill his brand, too! Man: I want my country back.

"We're going to be picking ten young, wonderful children, and we're going to make them apprenti."
