Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump keeps threatening to start acting presidential one of these days but nothing in his actions so far indicates any danger of that happening. Whether he’s barking at George Stephanopoulis on Good Morning America or announcing his pick for attorney general of the United States, Trump just doesn’t quite seem to care about how ridiculous his choices seem to rational voters. Trump just dropped a big announcement on Twitter. It seems the Donald has decided on an attorney general.

And the winner is Rep. Trey Gowdy. That’s right. The same Gowdy who chairs the U.S. House of Representative’s Select Committee on Benghazi and who has made his witch hunt of Hillary Clinton a priority at great expense to taxpayers.

In his announcement tweet, Trump said “@HillaryClinton’s toast. Dems had better get the”B Team” off the bench. @TGowdySC for Attorney General under President Trump.”

This is more than just a choice that would be an awful lot for voters to digest. It really is almost too much to fathom. Can Trump really be serious? There’s every reason to believe he is, and if this were any other election cycle, you would expect this to spell trouble for his campaign.

Most recently, Gowdy has come under fire for asking the Department of Defense to help his Benghazi committee track down Facebook users and anonymous talk radio guests as witnesses. None of this has apparently fazed his standing with Trump, though.

It’s hard to say what kind of attorney general would Gowdy make, but if his manner in presiding over the Benghazi committee offers any indication, it won’t be good. And Gowdy has gone on the record saying he supports Trump’s stance on immigration and in February he tweeted this:

Gowdy may have already come out in support of Trump, but the real estate mogul has recently been critical of Gowdy and the activities of the Benghazi committee, calling it a “total disaster.” Something must have changed, though, and it’s just possible it has to do with Gowdy’s recent statements on the House floor regarding immigration, which you can watch below courtesy of C-Span.
