‘Who Will Clean Their Toilets?’: Salon Writer Dragged On Twitter For Immigration Remarks

Surely, “Dreamers” must have bigger dreams than cleaning toilets and driving limos.

Every so often, someone on the radical left turns off their filter and tells us how they really feel.

On Saturday, Salon writer Mary Beth Williams tweeted, “I wonder if the GOP has asked itself who will clean their toilets & nanny their children & drive their limos when we’re all dead & deported.”

It can be assumed that Williams comments were in response to what she believes are anti-immigration policies by the Trump administration. But what she actually revealed were the true feelings that many on the left have about immigrants, especially those from certain parts of the world.

Don’t believe me?

Back in 2016, President Obama argued that we need illegal immigrants to “pick our fruit or make our beds.” Responding to Donald Trump’s comments on immigration in 2015,  Kelly Osbourne said, “If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?”Meanwhile, former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa called for keeping illegal aliens in the country, saying that “We clean your toilets. We clean your hotels. We build your houses.”

Williams eventually removed the tweet, but not before being mercilessly mocked by conservatives.
