Hey guys! There’s an Op-Ed in the NYTimes that says Prznint Stupid cannot appoint grifter Matthew Whitaker to be even the acting Attorney General!
The argument is that Art. II, Sec. 2, Clause 2 of the Constitution states that principal officers of the United States must be confirmed by the Senate. This is definitional, so follow along closely:
A principal officer reports directly to the president and only to the president. Acting AG Matthew Whitaker reports only to the president, so—badda-boom!—he is a principal officer and therefore must have Senate confirmation.
We might have mentioned something earlier about Whitaker’s career as a shake-down artist, a career which probably would be hard to sell even to Republicans (though they might avail themselves of his services).
OK, we’re saving the best for last: the Op-Ed was written by BS Barbie’s hubby, George Conway, who during the Big Dawg years got the Supreme Court to rule 9-0 that civil suits against sitting presidents are allowed.
Bet there’s gonna be some pillow talk tonight!
