Policy adviser for pro-Trump PAC booted after praise of Nazis sends corporate sponsors fleeing

Published

on

Juan Pablo Andrade, who came under heat last month for praising Nazis in a viral video has been booted from two pro-Trump organizations that he led.

Andrade served as a policy adviser for America First Policies and America First Action PAC. In May he was busted for saying: “The only thing the Nazis didn’t get right is they didn’t keep f***ing going!”

Andrade told CNN that the video was taken out of context, and that he has since been let go from both groups.

“As a decision from the board of directors, I was let go from America First Policies/Action, but it was a mutual agreement,” he said.

Andrade dismissal comes on the heels of several people exiting from the right-wing groups. Sponsors such has CVS Health, Southern Company and Dow Chemical stopped contributing to the organizations two weeks ago.

The group has a rotating door of people coming and leaving.  Leader of the group, Carl Higbie, resigned from his position earlier this month. Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer joined America First Action PAC as a spokesman and senior adviser in June.

America First Policies and America First Action PAC did not respond to a request for comment.

Trump picks Antonin Scalia’s son to replace disgraced former Labor Secretary: report

Published

on

On Thursday, NPR reported that President Donald Trump is naming Eugene Scalia, the son of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, to take over as Secretary of Labor.

Scalia, who served on the court from 1986 to his death in 2016, was known as one of the staunchest conservatives on the bench. His seat was deliberately kept vacant by Republicans for over a year to deny President Barack Obama the ability to make an appointment to it.

The Department of Labor was until this month run by former federal prosecutor Alexander Acosta, who resigned in disgrace amid renewed questions about his role in brokering a potentially illegal sweetheart plea agreement with hedge fund manager and accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.
