In other news, Britain's Ministry of Defence has no record of fascist cosplayer Sebastian Gorka serving in an anti-terror unit as he claims. Gorka's PhD is apparently fake, so it makes sense that his military service record is also fake.

Meanwhile, the State Department's latest hire was accused of sexual assault by 5 students at The Citadel war college. Excellent "extreme vetting."

Finally, a Freedom of Information Act request filed by CBS News has revealed that Trump was personally involved in the hunt for a National Park staffer who posted a photo of Trump's tiny inauguration crowd. Trump is a 70-year old man-child.

I am basically a zombie today so, if I screwed something up, just put it on my tab.

    “Meanwhile, the State Department’s latest hire was accused of sexual assault by 5 students at The Citadel war college. Excellent “extreme vetting.””
    Excellent extreme vetting (snark) implies they sloppily overlooked something that should prevent him from getting the job.

    There is nothing to indicate that they overlooked this or that they saw it as a problem. Pussy grabber trump has no problem with sexual assault or people that commit it.

      President Trump is also a (self-admitted) sexual predator who has personally vouched for other alleged (apparent?) sexual predators as people who are targeted with false claims because of their positions of power. He likely feels that sexual assault allegations just prove that one is a true man of power. It would be fair to assume that these allegations of sexual assault against this man hired at the State Department were seen as confirmation that he is truly one of them.

    Anybody remember the figure code named “curve ball” from the run-up to the invasion of Iraq? The sheer bad spy movie, comical, slapstick sense of sleaziness revolving around him is the sense I get from Gorka only with the added malevolence of literal Nazism.

    Once again, The Trump administration has made the Bush administration seem charming in comparison.

      And that is no small feat.
