Trump's undocumented workers strike back, tells Sam Bee that he's cheating on golf

Samantha Bee jumped a golf cart for some "raging air" and going undercover as a "day-drunk white woman" on Wednesday's Full Frontal and get out of the studio to talk to some people with one leg to pluck against Donald Trump. And while Bee could have aimed her car in literally any direction and found someone who fit that description before the battery had time to fully plug in, she steamed right into a country club, which makes sense. Sure, she could have talked to guests at one of Trump's "bedside golf slums," but Bee was looking for people with more complaints than ketchup on steak or suspected scorecards and found four former Trump employees who are among those filing a lawsuit against their immigrant-smothering, kid-boring former employer – for having driven his financially suspicious real estate empire on the back of the highly undocumented immigrants whom he uses as the boogeymen to line up his bigot base.

Sitting down with four such former Trump workers (after exposing more of Trump's golf club who previously scrutinized the section), Bee listened to the kind of horrific surveillance hypocrisy and illegality that would lead to any presidency in a functioning democracy. , but has just become the Trump administration's daily news dump. Hiring with assurances that they did not need legal documents, then getting the money and knowledge to buy fake documents when Trump was elected, workers told additional stories about how their supervisors kept their undocumented status on them to keep them in line, including not complaining that they were routinely overworked, insulted, and delayed (and even beaten) by the Trump organizers' supervisors, who threatened them with deportation at every turn. Notes that Trump first began to postpone his undocumented workers when The New York Times printed an exposure on Trump's dependence on underpaid, abusive undocumented employees, a woman – who worked as a housekeeper who provided "personal care" (like Bee stressed, suppressing a gag) to Trumps – said she was shunted out of Don's house while she still had to clean up after Trump Org laid Ivanka and Eric when the Times shed a light on the situation.

Finding an immigration lawyer who handled the workers' case (fortunately Bee was on a golf course), Bee asked exactly what crimes Trump and his brother could be on the hook for, this time suppressing joy on the lawyer list that included "forced labor, coercion and human trafficking" and who, he says, can be punished with 20 years in prison, and the workers do not play and tell Bee that they have payroll and tax documentation to back up what they (and Times ) say were the Trump organization's thought-provoking hypocritical work methods "We don't just talk," said one woman in Spanish, "we speak with evidence" about a situation Bee summarized as a "very well-documented undocumented cluster fuck." They also have harsh and, in the circumstances, unkind words for their this employer (a non-Hispanic Spanish speaker who calls a rich old white villain "mentioroso" is always particularly satisfying), inc lusive to meet Trump where they know it will hurt the most. Because one woman called Trump a hypocrite, liar, and racist, Bee invited "And he's cheating on golf." "Sí," said the former employee with confidence, voicing the accusation that really seems to come under Donald Trump's skin.
