The Washington Post reports that a group of NeverTrump Republican national security experts who signed open letters during the campaign attacking Trump’s character and calling his candidacy a danger to the nation now lament that he’s not hiring them for his Administration. They’re whining that it’s “hostile,” that it’s as if Trump compiled an “enemies list” and they’re being blacklisted.
No Shinola, Sherlock? He didn’t need to compile an enemies list: his enemies voluntarily signed their names on their own list! I realize things work differently in DC, but in the real world, when you publicly call the boss every dirty name in the book, you assume he won’t be hiring you any time soon. But even in DC, do things really work that way? Do you think that if Hillary Clinton had won, she’d have offered me a Cabinet position?
Jimmy Kimmel does a comedy bit called “Is This News?” where he spotlights a news story so blindingly obvious that you wonder why anyone would even bother reporting it. I nominate this story for the next edition of that bit.
