Trump Team Just Announced Yet Another Well-known, Highly Hated Cabinet Member


It looks like New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie‘s (R) Trump-loving loyalty may have paid off after all. He didn’t get to keep his job on Trump’s transition team, but Christie may get a place in Trump’s cabinet. Friday, Trump told The Wall Street Journal:

‘At some point we’re going to do something with Chris. Don’t forget, we have a lot of positions. There are a lot of positions and the positions come up again. Because when they’re filled, somebody stays for eight years, somebody stays for two years, you never know. But we’ll be involved with Chris. Chris is a friend of mine. Chris is a great guy.’

Ignoring Trump’s constant allusions to him being in office for eight years, his reference to hiring Christie begs the question:  Would you want to work for Trump if you where Chris Christie?

Trump slammed Christie after the Bridgegate scandal. Despite Christie’s repeated denial of knowledge about or involvement in the scandal, sources speaking on behalf of Trump told The New York Post:

‘Trump thought it was shameful that Christie didn’t take the fall for [convicted aide] Bridget Kelly. Trump is really angry that Christie is sending a soccer mom to jail. He believes 100 percent that Christie was behind it all. Trump really doesn’t like it when married women with kids get hurt in politics. Trump was pretty disgusted with Christie. Trump is really angry that Christie is sending a soccer mom to jail. He believes 100 percent that Christie was behind it all.’

Once considered a front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, Christie was the first losing presidential hopeful to endorse Trump . However, that endorsement didn’t seem sincere when Christie was caught on camera rolling his eyes, shifting his body weight and looking visibly uncomfortable as Trump gave his Super Tuesday speech. Inversely, Trump didn’t seem too fond of Christie when he was caught on camera telling Christie to “Get in the plane and go home. You go home,” in a condescending manner.

It’s no secret that with their tit for tat insults, two-faced backstabbing and disregard for the people they serve, these two are made for one another. However, the problem is, their own selfish actions beg the question, “Are either of them good for America, especially working together?”
