It's simply because he was one of the few handful of supporters he had in the public eye. The few, the proud Trump surrogates are all getting hooked up with cabinet jobs now. Rewards for helping the Orange man during his run.

I'm sure no liberal has ever given a job to one of their supporters.


Funny that ya'll totally ignore the fact Trump is appointing people who were openly against him throughout the campaign.

Any of them appoint someone who believes in ancient aliens?

ps Just about everyone with a rational concept of government was against him, so his non-Klan pickins would be extraordinarily slim on the inside.

Glad to know you believe roughly half the Americans citizens who voted don't have a rational view of the government.

Interesting, we used to call it appointing qualified people.

But those were different times.
