I think I have figured out the Trump hiring procedures. They go like this:
Q: Are you qualified for this position?
A: Not in any way, shape, or form, but I did stay in a Trump hotel.
Q: Do you have a large social media presence and an easily discoverable history of past racially and otherwise bigoted statements?
A: Of course.
Q: Do you read Gateway Pundit?
A: I’m a valued commenter.
Q: State the first commandment.
A: Trump is thy God; thou shalt not have strange gods before the Donald.
EXCELLENT! You’re hired.

A political appointee at the Department of Health and Human Services shared an image in 2017 that said “our forefathers would have hung” Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for treason, a CNN KFile review has found.
Ximena Barreto is a far-right political pundit who in December 2017 joined the Trump administration as deputy director of communications at the department.
Barreto was placed on leave by the department on Monday after the liberal watchdog Media Matters reported that Barreto called Islam “a cult” and pushed the false Pizzagate conspiracy theory, which alleged that Clinton was part of a child-sex ring based in part at a Washington, DC, pizza restaurant.
A subsequent KFile review of her Twitter account “RepublicanChick” found that Barreto also repeatedly used the hashtag #BanIslam and twice shared conspiracy theories about the death of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich.
Barreto also shared a conspiracy theory that French President Emmanuel Macron was controlled by the Rothschild family and that Clinton and Obama were controlled by investor and Democratic mega-donor George Soros. Both the Rothschilds and Soros are frequent targets of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
Our government is now just jampacked with every bottom feeder the internet can burp up. When Democrats get back in charge the denazification is going to take up the entire first term.
