Billionaire Wilbur Ross Declares ‘The 1 Percent Is Being Picked On’
Take heart, downtrodden rich people of America: Another famous rich guy has heard your cries of persecution and is joining the small but growing 1st Percent Defense Brigade.
Billionaire bottom-feeder Wilbur Ross on Tuesday declared that “the 1 percent is being picked on for political reasons” and that poor people should stop their gripin’ and get themselves an education if they ever want to stop being part of the 99 percent.
“Education is the way that people get out of the ghetto and into, if not the 1 percent, something close to it,” Ross wealthsplained in an interview with Bloomberg TV, which is fast becoming the house organ for aggrieved rich guys (and not just the rich guy whose name is in the title).
Ross pledged his allegiance to another billionaire, the gnome king Sam Zell, who last week told Bloomberg TV that the 1 percent are “being pummeled because it’s politically convenient to do so” and because the poors are simply incapable of working as hard as the rich, leaving them seething with jealousy. Lazy, lazy jealousy.
