CNN’s Alison Camerota smells a rat. She wonders if the conspicuous timing of so many corporations giving raises and bonuses after the tax bill was signed by President Trump could be an attempt to help him win in 2020. After all, they were “sitting on profits before” the tax cuts. Why didn’t they give the bonuses then?
Democratic Representative Debbie Dingell played along. She didn’t give credence to the silly assertion by the “New Day” host but redirected like a seasoned professional politician. She did not, however state the obvious.
What CNN doesn’t know and what Democrats don’t want you to know is that when you cut taxes that were way too high to companies that employee a lot of people, it behooves them to use the extra cash they’ll save to create goodwill with employees and customers. “Sitting on profits” isn’t even a thing. They make profit since this is the goal of the vast majority of businesses since the beginning of business, but when they make more profits, they have more options. These companies aren’t trying to win the election for President Trump, at least most of them aren’t. Their goal is to do what’s best for the company. That often means helping out their employees.
It’s ridiculous to have to spell this out for Camerota, but she has an agenda to push and it’s blinding her to reality. She needed a small dose of it.

She suggests, without citing any evidence, that businesses could've done this before but that they chose not to. pic.twitter.com/nd3DIRAjp3
