Mayor Butt-Plug was the mayor of a small mid-western city and now if heading up the nation's Department of Transportation.

During the primaries, Mayor Butt-Plug sounded like he was running for student body president.

What a douche-bag. At least CHUD - Boy will be happy to see a fellow Butt-Plugger in China Joe's Cabinet.

And yet at age 38, he's gone further than either of you losers can ever hope to. Weird.

I am disappointed.
I thought that Pete would be appointed Secretary of Posterior.

Mayor Butt-Plug has zero Transportation experience but will rake in $$$$ salary and benefits as head of the U.S. Department of Transportation.

What a waste of taxpayer funds.

You guys are just all torn up about this Buttgiggly appointment I reckon?

Gotta admit, I don't get the appointment of Pete to Transportation Secretary. I'm sure he's smart and all but the no experience in that sector makes it a head scratcher.

Now, all you Trumptards pissing and moaning about it can go ahead and shut the fuck unless you called out Trump for all the ridiculous appointments he made as well. There were a lot of them.

And Melania is apparently on crack or Rudy might be lying, I'm thinking the latter. Trump didn't give Stormy a check for $130k out of the goodness of his heart.

^^^^If Rudy's mouth is moving, he's lying.
