Sadquester: Wealthy former Car Czar’s son can’t apply for scrapped DoD internship

Bow your heads, Americans. Sequestration has claimed another victim. Several, actually. Former Obama Car Czar and current millionaire “Morning Joe” economic analyst Steven Rattner‘s son will no longer be able to apply for a coveted Defense Dept. internship this summer:

And Rattner’s friend’s son? He’ll have to intern on the Hill without pay:

Oh, the humanity!

Yeah … no.

Hey, there’s an idea!

Please! Won’t someone¬†please¬†think of the children?!

      No …. I hate those enitled morons who think we are too stupid to see them for who they are. Bloomberg is not alone.

        Isn’t that what Spatial said?

      If Shakespeare were alive today, I imagine he would edit Henry VI Part 2 and rewrite the famous line: “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the politicians.”

    Oh noes!!!!

    How is Rattner’s boy now going to be able to afford gas for the graduation Ferrari he bought him?!

    And his poor son’s friend…an unpaid intern?! Oh merciful Lord, the Hellish weeping and gnashing of teeth that this evil, possibly character building, internship could cause!!

    Got 99 problems and the spoiled lefty rich ain’t one (shocker that their kids made up most of the vaunted “99%”).

    You lefty millionaires can go sell your entitled “not fair crybaby” sh#t somewhere else. We’re all stocked up here.

    Oh noes! Another DC-insider liberal felt their silver spoon slip a little! Their poor trust-funder son cannot push his way in front of more qualified, and non-wealthy, individuals more suited for this internship! And how will he survive under an unpaid internship? Like millions of young people who do and are not from a 1%-er family.

    Gee, maybe all that intern money got transferred over to the Dept. of Education for the new Czar –“U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan has announced the appointment of
    David J. Johns as executive director of the White House Initiative on
    Educational Excellence for African Americans.”

    Instead of an internship at the Department of Defense he could always, you know, ENLIST!

    Rattner’s son loses internship with DoD due to sequester….
    DoD: “Thank you sequester….thank you very much”
