The Finest People
Like a common Boeing 737 Max, Acting Secretary of Defense and former Boeing lobbyist Patrick Shanahan’s candidacy to become the permanent SOD exploded and all hands were lost:
“President Donald Trump said Tuesday that acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan has “decided not to go forward with his confirmation process.” Shanahan’s withdrawal was announced shortly after the Washington Post published a report detailing a violent incident in 2011 in which his son attacked his own mother with a baseball bat…
“In court filings, Shanahan’s ex-wife Kimberley accused him of hitting her during a dispute at their home in August 2010.
A police officer who responded to the dispute noted that “Patrick had a black eye and a bloody nose” and that Kimberley did not have “any visible marks” on her, though Kimberley told the officer Patrick struck her several times in the stomach, according to a police incident report.”
He wants to spend more time with his family, per Prznint Stupid, which may be the accidentally funniest thing that dolt has ever said. (Aside: there is NOTHING funny about domestic violence.)
Where does he find all these fine people?
So we are still 6 months without a Secretary of Defense as Bolton continues to sabre rattle with Iran. So we got that going for us!
Cadet Bonespurs is nominating noted Raytheon lobbyist and current Secretary of the Army Mark Esper to be the (Acting) Secretary of Defense, so that swamp ain’t draining itself.
