In other news, despot-elect Donald Trump's nominee for the Office of Management and Budget apparently can't manage his own house.

The South Carolina Republican told the Senate Budget Committee in its official nominee questionnaire that he failed to pay FICA taxes, as well as federal and state unemployment taxes, for a person he employed in his household between 2000 and 2004, according to a copy reviewed by POLITICO.

Meanwhile, Governor Reek told New York radio station WFAN that the reason he isn't joining the Trump regime is because his wife wouldn't let him.

Look, we all know Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner wouldn't let Christie anywhere near the White House. Let's not pretend otherwise.

Finally, President Obama held his final press conference as president this afternoon.

I'll post the full press conference tomorrow if it's available.

    Didn’t the Obama administration lose a couple of their cabinet picks because of these tax issues? Van Jones comes to mind. And I think his original pick for Education. Am I remembering wrong?

    EDITING TO ADD: Nice touch with the Linkin Park song.

      Tom Daschle was his original pick for HHS; withdrew over taxes

    I could not be prouder, as an American, of the 8 years we were fortunate enough to have this man leading out country. More of the same please.
