    “The Times & The Empress”

    Elaine Chao could obsessively follow the careers of her Harvard MBA classmates, mint gold coins with her name, and have staff workers carry her bag. Too bad she did so little for U. S. workers when she was Secretary of Labor. She has been extremely privileged, yet has done nothing for working people–an appropriate handmaiden for Mitch McConnell. That is why I refer to her as “Empress.”
