Florida A.G. Pam Bondi May Get Trump White House Position Even Though All The Best Girl Jobs Filled
They do seem like natural allies...
Big transition news today, as Bloomberg reporter Jennifer Jacobs tells us Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is in line for some kind of job with the Trump White House, though it hasn't been announced yet.
Bondi met with Trump at the Taco Bowl Tower way back in December, but until now nothing appeared to have come of it -- and both Bondi and Team Trump are being very close-lipped about what job, if any, she might get. Bondi was unwilling to comment, saying only, "I'd never discuss anything confidential," just like she never saw any need to say much of anything about the $25,000 donation the Trump Foundation illegally made to her campaign when she decided not to sue holy hell out of him and his fraudulent "university." On a conference call with reporters Thursday, press secretary designee Sean "Sparkle" Spicer said Bondi "has been a very trusted confidante and supporter of the president-elect,” but added,
I don’t want to get ahead of any decisions or any announcements that may or may not come but she has been a very important person both in terms of the campaign and the transition and is a very valued opinion in the president elect’s world right now.
Translation: Yeah, probably, but look at all the jobs Giuliani's name has been floated for.
So if Pam Bondi is being considered for a Trump Job (we're too scared to look whether there's an Urban Dictionary listing for "trumpjob"), what might it be? Virtually everyone named to the Trump cabinet so far has been a white guy (Exceptions: Ben Carson to dismantle HUD, Betsy DeVos to dismantle Education, Elaine Chao to grudgingly keep Transportation going, and Nikki Haley as UN ambassador until we give up on the organization forever and convert that prime real estate to a Trump hotel). It's not clear whether Bondi's being considered to head one of the two open Departments -- Veterans Affairs or Agriculture -- or for some other job in the White House, like special advisor on graft. Bondi has no experience in either Agriculture or Veterans Affairs, as far as we know, but "lacking experience" is the one résumé item that has yet to disqualify any Trump appointee.
Nothing to see here. Everything's on the up and up, all right.
Why does Anderson have to keep pointing out Pam Bondi's past anti-gay bigotry, NO FAIR!
Girl. GIRL. Anderson Cooper is not done using you as a mop to wipe up this floor.
Wherever Pam Bondi ends up, we're absolutely certain she'll be a national embarrassment, so her greatest challenge will be to stand out from the rest of the Trump administration.
