❝ Just days after picking Betsy DeVos to run the Department of Education, President-elect Donald Trump has tapped another wealthy outsider by naming Joaquín Guzmán, known as “El Chapo,” to head the Drug Enforcement Administration.
In an official statement, Trump said that El Chapo’s “tremendous success in the private sector” showed that he has what it takes to “shake things up” at the D.E.A…
❝ When asked why Trump had readily offered a job to El Chapo while still mulling the fate of another former adversary, Mitt Romney, Trump surrogate Kellyanne Conway said, “El Chapo might not have voted for Mr. Trump, but that’s because he’s Mexican and in jail, and Mitt Romney is neither.”
❝ The appointment of the former drug kingpin is far from a done deal, however, as associates of El Chapo report that he is “concerned” that being a member of the Trump Administration would be bad for his brand.
Read all of this short piece by Andy Borowitz. I’m surprised Trump hasn’t tried to take out a contract on him for any of the satirical pieces Borowitz has produced for the NEW YORKER – about Trump and scumbags like him.
