Wilbur Ross is the King of Vulture Capitalism. He has raped and pillaged more than anyone since Ghengis Khan.

He can f*ck right off.

That's insulting to basset hounds, subby. A truly noble breed of.... oh god, what's that... drool, on my lampshade? DAMMIT DOG!

"I think what's sad is for business leaders to give up an opportunity to influence policy over some singular issue with which they disagree,"

You know that issue is F*CKING NAZIS, RIGHT??

As if choosing to sign on as the president's Commerce Secretary wasn't proof enough, that asinine statement reverified that Droopy Dawg has absolutely no integrity and is hoping that the president will let him suck his dick.

I learned two new things from that article
1) An old white billionaire Trump appointee is in charge of the 2020 census
2) Begining in 2020 there will no longer be brown people in America

Oh you better believe they'll do everything they can to undercount brown people.  Speaking of which, did SCOTUS ever rule on whether undocumented people count toward Congressional apportionment?  I know there was a case working its way through the courts but can't remember what happened.

Bringing integrity to the Trump administration is literally more difficult than sending a manned mission to Mars.

It is always fascinating to me to see people try to use the "quit the phony moralizing: admitting it is all virtue signalling is the first step to recovery" line, because it really shows that they can't even imagine someone being actually offended by terrible things unless they happen specifically to them or people of their peer group.

Doesn't matter. Ignore SCOTUS, do what the alt-right wants, and let the undocumented people spend millions of dollars to fight it in court for the next decade.

Not all 'single issues' are created equally.

Some are worth telling a president to fark off over.

Yes, spines and integrity, not fear of bad PR.

Oh, great. The article just reminded me of the 8,453rd reason we need to get "President" Trump and all his worthless filthy-rich posse out of office as soon as possible: The 2020 Census.

Ok the CEOs leaving may have only partially virtue signalling, but what ESPN has been doing is horrific virtue signalling.

I would say that if you are in a position to influence/assist the Pres, you should think twice before jumping off the train and onto the bandwagon.

Because he's going to be in office for as much as another year and a half.  Who am I kidding.

We wouldn't want anybody signalling virue, would we.
Virtue is admittedly a pretty outmoded concept in the era of Trump.
"Virtue signalling", "SJW", "political correctness" - all verbal "stupid" signs one really shouldn't publicly hang around one's own neck.

He's still technically right.  You can't change it if you aren't part of it.

There was nothing they could do anyway, so it doesn't matter,  but still technically right.

He must be having a hard time wrapping his head around the idea of hating to have to justify advising a Nazi who wasn't going to take their advice anyway.

Not true at all. Government policy is always influenced from the outside. Think of lobbies. Or politicians voting with an eye toward public opinion and how it affects elections.

And then you have this, from a few links up, regarding Gary Cohn:

Bannon - himself the target of a similar ouster campaign, who's now returned to his perch running Breitbart - told the CBS News program "60 Minutes," in an interview airing Sunday, that Cohn should have left the White House after publicly disagreeing with the president's response after the death of a counterprotester at a white supremacist march in Charlottesville last month. "If you're going to break with him, resign," Bannon told interviewer Charlie Rose. "If you find it unacceptable, you should resign."

Of course, when you're dealing with Schrodinger's POTUS, the question is always determining which of his positions on any given issue you should take seriously.

Yeah guys if supporting Nazis makes you a few dollars then how is that wrong?!

You can call something stupid, but when it's true, the only stupid sign is hanging on your own neck.

When ESPN took a commentator named Robert Lee off a game because of his name, that was supervirtue signalling, i.e. " I'm so virtuous I will fark up someone's life just so that you know how much I care!"

  There is a megaton of bullshiat flying around that is perfectly described as virtue signalling.  You keep working at defending at, might keep you from signalling something worse.
