Trump Picks Mitch McConnell's Wife for Transportation Secretary

Donald Trump has chosen former Labor Secretary, Elaine Chao, who is married to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, to lead the Transportation Department,  reports The Washington Post.

This is not an insignificant post in an administration that plans to spend trillions on infrastructure.

This is a major league crony deal.

Notes The Washington Post:
In naming a former cabinet member, who has been married to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell since 1993, Trump selected another Washington insider after campaigning on a promise to “drain the swamp” of the influences that he said permeate the capital.
Another punch to the stomach of Libertarians for Trump. But wait until the wars come.



  1. Fool me once, shames on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. If you were fooled by the politicians into actually voting in this last election, make a promise to yourself not to make that mistake again. Don't enable the shameful behavior of politicians by participating in political activities.

  2. How do you drain a swamp?

    By pouring it into your cabinet!
