Various sources report that Trump’s pick for Secretary of Labor doesn’t have enough votes and will withdraw. You know what that means? It means he will pick someone worse, and then you’ll all feel REALLY dumb. Like for example…actually I can’t think of anyone worse. Carl’s Jr is pretty much the bottom of the barrel as far as labor practices go. Maybe one of the schlebby mammonites in charge of Wal-Mart wants the job. I don’t see why any of Sam Walton’s professional heirs would bother.
Replacing Putzder will be a fun test. You have to find someone rich and hateful enough to satisfy Trump. If that person survives nomination hell, the reward will be a prime chance to get blamed by Trump for some stupid thing Trump did, purged by Bannon and his right wing media for some petty heterodoxy, hauled in front of a Congressional committee or questioned by a grand jury. I find it hard to believe that anyone still thinks the Trump show ends well. Who would voluntarily join that?
