So our president-elect is starting a twitter war with Meryl Streep. Is that buyer's remorse kicking in yet Republicans?

BCG1- all I stated was that a reduction in H1B wouldn't hurt me at all. I didn't advocate for it nor would I on the exact grounds you mention. Half the people I work with are either H1B or used to be. It also means that they reduce demand by increasing supply, thus suppressing tech salaries. There is a reason it costs more per hour to buy bullshit PowerPoint decks and unactionable advice than it does to completely revamp an ecommerce front end that will increase sales by 30%.

I'm not a republican but I voted for trump. I don't give a shit what he says on twitter because I have seen how it works out in the end. Time after time he pulls the wool over half the country's eyes and ends up making fools out of the media, the establishment politicians, and our foreign competitors. I'm glad to see it's working on you too A2. Keep focusing on Twitter and pay no attention to the actual stuff he's doing behind the curtain.

I'm no Republican, but not sure why Meryl/others find it so difficult to understand the difference between illegal and legal immigrants.....

@D2 - Acceptance speeches have always been platforms for personal politics see Hollywood circa WWI and WWII when they used it to drum up support for war bonds. It's really telling you have no grasp of history or priorities that you'd go after an ACTOR for expressing herself rather than the TV personality that got elected and spends time on twitter rather than security briefings.

Meryl is just another liberal who is taking advantage of her celebrity platform to spew garbage. Your acceptance speech at a Hollywood award show is not the place to cry about your hurt feelings related to a politician.

PwC1 - you might not be a Republican but I'm not sure why you find it difficult to understand that Trump isn't just going after illegal immigrants. "Trump's transition website promises to "reform legal immigration to serve the best interests of America and its workers," echoing language that Sessions and other so-called restrictionists have used to go after visa programs." This has a direct impact on our work as consultants as well.

@D2 - Nah, this is me having fun. It'll be a great four years watching morons like you try to obfuscate and dance around the reality that your idol is a clown. It's hilarious you think an actor is worth more scrutiny than the president elect who can't be bothered to spell overrated correctly.

DD1- Do you honestly think it is better for the country to limit visas? Do we not want the best and brightest working and innovating here? I understand comments about cracking down on illegal immigration, but what you are saying is very different. It seems contradictory for a party that is all about free market, not relying on gov't, bootstraps, etc. to say we should limit visas because it diminishes competition for advanced jobs.

How about the Don stop attacking private citizens. He is the president elect. As much as President Obama was called an ape, a monkey, a racist, stupid, a horrible president whatever... he understood that being in office requires (at least it did), a certain polish, poise and thick skin. As much as people yelled at Bush and called Hillary unsavory names, they did not engage o. Wars with day to day citizens. Don man, get yourself together. You have bigger fish to fry. And for everyone dismissing his behavior, it's not OK. It is not OK for our future leader to act like this. He should understand we have so@ethj g called free speech, he is going to be the leader of a country that believes in that. Stop beefing with the people and lead the people. And D2 Meryl was out and about prior to thee election stomping for Hillary, believe she even had a fundraiser for her.

You guys really need to chill. He's already been elected... where was Meryl about 6 months ago when she may have had a chance of actually making a difference ?

It is objectively clear that Trump is intellectually, temperamentally and experientially unfit to do any of our jobs, let alone be President. A job that requires making considered judgments in complex, highly pressured contexts. But Trump played on many peoples fear/hysteria and duped them into voting for him by using his tabloid celebrity to credentialize himself among the paranoid, uneducated and the gullible.

Seen in this thread: more cogent arguments on either side than the president elect will ever be able to make.

Not a Republican, but I'm loving this stuff. It would be nice to see the United States only care about the United States for a little while. I love you guys, but I didn't sign up to fight for (insert other nationality). Trump will get talked out of reduction in H1B but it wouldn't hurt me at all if he wasn't.
