OMG … Reality Check … Take Trumps Pen Away!!!

OMG, please someone please take President Trumps pen away!!! The most recent thing that he did makes me wanting to steal all the pens in Washington DC that President Trump can use to make decisions on who can run the major positions.

One of the things that I am talking about is the person who they originally were to run the EPA. The person was from the state of Washington. His name is Mr. Don Benton. He billed the campaign over $135,000.00 The problem is that he has a near perfect record of failing and having problems with people that he worked with. He got asked to leave and since the Trump Presidency that has so few people that he was given a fail up to the head of the U.S. Selective Service System (that handles the draft) and needs to register all men ages 18 through 25.1

The News Tribune of Tacoma Washington had a wonderful article for those who would love to have a good laugh.

“The talented Mr. Benton: The Evergreen State is nothing if not generous. Look at the gift we just gave to the other Washington — none other than former state Sen. Don Benton, our best and brightest. His political career reads like the story of Scuffy the Tugboat’s heroic and misunderstood evil twin.

Come on — don’t pretend you don’t know that Benton was just tapped to lead the all-important U.S. Selective Service System, which runs the military draft, which ended back in 1973. Scoff all you want — that little federal agency is vital, and Benton is the ideal figurehead.

Apart from that he brings a wealth of D.C. experience: he just spent a bit more than two months as President Donald Trump’s “senior adviser” to the Environmental Protection Agency.

In that span, Benton proved his mettle, driving agency leader Scott Pruitt “batty,” which as everyone knows, is D.C.-speak for holding another Trump appointee accountable by talking over him all the time, which is the best way to get things done.

Don’t believe it? Ask Gov. Big Jay Inslee, who just happened to be visiting with Your Fishwrap’s editorial board when the Benton Selective Service bombshell hit the wires. Big Jay reacted with back-slapping praise.

“I couldn’t think of a more perfect place for Sen. Don Benton than an agency that has no function,” Inslee said.

That’s bipartisanship, friends. History shows Benton’s Republican colleagues feel the same
way. After all, they voted him out as state party chairman in 2000, after only eight months on the job. Benton had courageously refused calls for his resignation.

In the state Senate, he called a colleague “a trashy, tramp-mouthed little girl,” which is just the kind of high-flown rhetoric those coarse rubes in D.C. need to shake them out of their lowbrow affectations.

Down in Clark County, Benton’s home ground, county commissioners appointed him as the director of environmental services, a job that paid $154,000 annually and required eight years of experience he didn’t have, as well as a master’s degree in a related field, which he didn’t have either, but hey, quick learners and natural leaders like Benton don’t need background knowledge.

Doubtless that’s why he was fired three years later, and presumably, that’s why he took the brave step of suing his former employer for $2 million to cover his stress and mental health costs. Thank goodness he found a soft landing.”2
