Not only was she miffed at having to personally appear at a "scumbag" of towing office to bail out her car, she was incensed that the little people had failed to recognize her innate VIP-ness.
Without so much as a script, Britt effortlessly recited the same litany that right-wing taxophobes dish out on the public airwaves and in the halls of Congress every single day. Her big mistake was that she chose to forgo both the dog-whistle subtlety and the invocation of God that normally would have granted her immunity. Some highlights of her strangely flat-affect spiel:
- "That’s why I have a degree and you don’t.”
- “That’s all you care about is just taking people’s money. With no education, no skill-set. Just wanted to clarify that.”
- "I'm on television and you're in a fucking trailer."
- “Do you feel good about your job? So I could be a college dropout and do the same thing?”
- “Maybe if I was missing some teeth, they would hire me here, huh?”
- “Lose some weight, baby girl.”
Therefore, it's quite a change of pace to see how a rich person berates a towing company -- not mainly for its unfairness and probable criminality, but for the physical appearance and educational bona fides of its staff. Britt McHenry has got the aggrieved, entitled post-preppie agenda down pat. Even in the throes of elite extremis, she thought to mention the debunked "skills gap" theory of why the rich are so rich and the poor are so downtrodden.
Judging from this selfie posted on USA Today's Big Lead site, Britt McHenry and her male bosses at Bloodsport, Inc. think very highly of her own skill-set:
Just wanted to clarify that.
