In an interview with Ms. Information on Tuesday for HBN (Headline Baiting Network), House of Representatives member Humphrey Humphries mentioned how Americans need to keep minimum wage where it is for, as he put it, “the sake of the free market and the free world”. He reiterated many times throughout the interview that “a change from minimum wage to living wage is always the warning sign of a full-on communist takeover”. He mentioned how the bar at which living wage is set is a hoax. As put in his words, “if minimum wage were not equal to living wage, everyone living at minimum wage would be dead by now”. Through several more minutes of reaching out to the lower class of America and fueled by his own empathy, he addressed the calls for an increase in minimum wage as “liberal jargon” perpetrated by, “pinko commie scum who are trying to attack the core of western civilization”. As Humphries put it, “anyone in the free country of America should have the inalienable right to experience the vicious cycle of poverty. Once the ability to not be able to pay for basic necessities is removed, a central part of the free world is lost.” Through this interview, it was clear that Humphries was as proficient in deceiving the people of America for his personal benefit as ever.
