    I wonder if Trump has approached Mr. Mike Rowe (the host of Dirty Jobs, the Narrator of Deadliest Catch, and host of the podcast, "Thats the way I heard it") about a slot in his administration. I think he would be a very good advocate for getting vocational education back into the schools; for lobbying school districts, teachers unions, administrators, etc to perhaps cut back on the sports and putting that money into job skills. Trump definitely has incorporated TV personalities into his administration and Rowe seems like he's really interested in the topic.

    Mike Rowe is an idiot. With all the safety rules he ignores in his programs, I'm surprised that OSHA allows him to broadcast his crap. Any qualified industrial safety man would fire him before his first commercial.

    Not when I watched. I have never seen him wear a harness when working overhead.

    I thought you'd ask him to do one last dirty job he hasn't tried yet, the toughest one yet-
    cleaning the swamp. :)

    That would require Trump to care about education and being interested in sound, responsible governance.

    He couldn’t care less about either.

    Agree. Mike Rowe is a straight shooter, and would be a good asset to Trump, and the country. We need more skilled individuals, and craftsmen in this country.
