The federal government has been partially shut down for over a month now. 800,000 laborers have been furloughed or forced to work without pay for its duration, while millions have gone without valuable government services. There's no end in sight, but people must somehow attain necessities and keep themselves afloat financially. It's an unfortunate situation all around.
But wait! President Trump provided a 'solution' to federal workers struggling to feed themselves. It came while clarifying comments commerce secretary Wilbur Ross made about the workers' plight. During a CNBC interview, Ross (ew, we share a last name) said they should take out low or no-interest loans rather than visit food banks to make it through. Um, okay.
Trump piggybacked off that nonsense with his own 'advice.'
