Trump auditioning man who called Hillary Clinton a c*nt for agriculture secretary

Published

on

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, who came under fire last month after calling former Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton a “c*nt,” is interviewing to become Donald Trump’s Agriculture Secretary, Politico reports.

Miller travelled to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate Friday to meet with transition team members, reportedly to audition for one of the few remaining cabinet positions. Miller’s first act as Texas Agriculture Commissioner granted “full amnesty to cupcakes,” the Texas Tribune reports, when he promised Texas parents he’d protect their right to bring desserts to school.

In November, Miller retweeted an obscene post about Clinton.

He or a staffer quickly deleted the tweet, posting instead “@MillerForTexas HAS BEEN HACKED. The disgusting re-tweet has been removed and we have changed all account passwords. Be advised.”

A few minutes later, Miller deleted the tweet that claimed the account was hacked and admitted the tweet was sent by the campaign. He then issued a statement blaming the mishap on a campaign staffer who “inadvertently retweeted a tweet that they were not aware contained a derogatory term”

“I said, ‘Why don’t y’all just do some retweets?'” Miller told The Texas Tribune. “They didn’t notice it had a derogatory term in it and they tweeted it out.”

Even Texas Gov. Greg Abbott condemned the retweet, telling Miller, ”no true Texas gentleman would ever talk this way.”

Miller isn’t the only one who’s faced criticism for sharing derogatory posts “inadvertently.” Fittingly, Trump himself drew fire in July after tweeting a graphic of Hillary Clinton that prominently featured the Star of David and a pile of money. The meme originated on the neo-Nazi message board, 8Chan.

The Trump campaign deleted the post before subbing in a circle for the Star of David.

Trump invited himself to a Houston, Texas rally with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, where he tried to campaign for the U.S. president with Indian-American voters. Sadly, however, nearly 80 percent of Indian-American voters cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Republicans love the Constitution — until it applies to them: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot unleashed on President Donald Trump's latest scandal he's calling Ukraine-gate. But when it comes to Republicans, he called them outright complicit.

In his Sunday column, Boot noted that a mob boss doesn't have to overtly say “pay up, or we will destroy your store” to be guilty of extortion. In Trump's case, he tends to say things in a way that it is understood what he wants people to do, according to former "fixer" Michael Cohen.

Hate for Trump sets new record of Americans who can’t stand a president

Published

on

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
