    Who Is Matt Whitaker And Why Is He Illegally Pretending To Be The Attorney General?

    I have a simple question for Trump lovers, why do you trust that Matt Whitaker would do a better job as Attorney General than Sessions or Rosenstein? Compared to both of them, Whitaker is the least qualified -- in fact, compared to most Attorney Generals, he is the least qualified.

    Whitaker is a long time political hack who kissed ass in order to move up -- and this is not a new critique, this has long been said about him. His kissed Bush's ass and got a US attorney's job out of it. He tried to run for senate, and finished 4th in the primaries, he also served on the board of a corrupt scam company where he sent out multiple threatening letters to customers to protect that scam company -- it didn't work out well.

    Luckily, Whitaker went back to kissing ass and that act of ass kissing impressed Donald Trump so much that he convinced Sessions to make Whitaker his chief of staff -- in fact he was popularly known as the White House’s “spy” inside Sessions’s office and curried favor with the president’s top aides; so it was no shock that he would be picked for the AG spot -- even tho Trump claims not to know him, which is bullshit.

    As for Trump lovers claiming that his appointment is constitutional and that Trump can rewrite constitutional norms -- you guys may need to have Clarence Thomas go back in time and retract his legal opinion about appointments that need senate confirmation. You see, during the Obama admin, the GOP repeatedly blocked his nomination to the Labor Review Board because of course, conservatives hate labor rights being enforced -- Obama's nominee was serving as acting chairman of the NLRB -- a company filed a lawsuit claiming his appointment is unconstitutional and it reached the supreme court where Thomas wrote in his ruling that an “acting” office holder is also subject to advice and consent requirements of the appointments clause -- but that's because Obama was president then, this is different, because reasons...

    However, if Trump picked Sessions who was popular with Trump supporters because he was the first Senator to kiss Trump's ass -- and now you guys hate him -- If Trump picked Rosenstein and you guys cheered because you believe Trump only picks the best people -- now you guys hate him -- what has Whitaker done that makes you feel he is so great?

    Sort of like you people were bent out of shape about Eric Holder?

    Who was actually qualified to be attorney general -- at least that is what Ronald Reagan thought when he nominated Eric Holder as district judge...oh and he graduated with honors from Columbia -- since Trump seems to think having an Ivy league education matters.

    No one objected to Holder until he gave the cartels military grade weapons.

    Whitaker’s just another incompetent criminal. The type of person Trump likes to surround himself with. He’ll leave in disgrace soon enough, as happens to all of Trump’s cronies.

    To Trump, “qualified” means willing to be an accomplice.

    I don't trust him....Too swampy, though he IS qualified.

    But watching the moonbats shit their britches about him, or any other appointment Cheeto makes, is a never-ending source of amusement.
