Lots of crow to eat! OPM’s sample letters for furloughed workers to ask landlords about doing chores came from OBAMA admin

Last week the Office of Personnel Management accidentally suggested on social media that federal employees affected by the government shutdown should offer to perform painting, carpentry work and other tasks for their landlord in exchange for an extension on their mortgage/rent deadlines.

The office had meant to tweet sample letters that furloughed federal workers could use to negotiate with their landlords and creditors. While that’s what they in fact did, the problem is they accidentally linked Twitter users to older documents from a previous administration.

And it just so happened that these older documents included some dubious stuff.

“I would like to discuss with you the possibility of trading my services to perform maintenance (e.g. painting, carpentry work) in exchange for partial rent payments,” one document, a sample letter to a renter, reportedly read, much to the anger and outrage of leftists.

Look below to see blue check mark liberals responding to these letters:


What’s actually “sadly true” is that these letters exist because of the administration of former President Barack Hussein Obama, i.e., the man these Democrats presumably worship as a king.

And the evidence of this doesn’t come from some “right-wing nut job site” but rather from The Washington Post, a left-wing outlet revered by radical far-leftists all across America.

According to the Post, OPM released a statement Saturday that noted that the letters that the agency accidentally shared were from the 2013 Obama-era shutdown.

“OPM – itself acting with limited resources during the furlough period – inadvertently posted a legacy document from the 2013 shutdown,” an agency spokesperson said.

“Since discovering the out-of-date documents, OPM updated the website to reflect current information, and regrets any unintended concern caused by legacy documentation.”


But there’s more. The Post dutifully found evidence to back up this claim: “The Internet Archive’s ‘Wayback Machine’ shows OPM has offered similar advice for furloughed workers in the past, such as in 2015 when Barack Obama was president, as some pointed out.”

In other words, every blue check mark Democrat who ripped into OPM and of course President Donald Trump for the agency’s letters has a lot of crow to eat.

So do all these other non-blue check mark liberal Democrats:

What do you suppose are the chances these same liberal Democrats reacted similarly when the actual “lunatic” whose administration wrote these letters shared them in 2013 and 2015?

If you guessed zero,  you’re probably right.
