    Default Linda McMahon picked as Small Business Administration

    http://www.cnn.com/2016/12/07/politi...ator/index.htm

    Thoughts, someone said on facebook that this was only because Vince McMahon donated 6 million to his presidential run.

    I look forward to the press conference where she rises out of a wheelchair and kicks Trump in the balls.

    I've gotta say, Ashton Kutcher has really outdone himself with this season of Punk'd.

    Let's be honest right now ... this one was straight up bought. It cost them at least $10 million but they got it.

    Hey, I'm all for it. Every move Trump makes, I have faith in. This one is no different. It's not like she has this MAJOR role in the White House and it's not like she's an unqualified idiot. She's smart. She's run for positions before and lost. The only reason people are mad is because Trump made the decision. Anything he does, people will go and attack. It's expected. But let's also forget and ignore the fact that everyone called him sexist. He's such a sexist pig, isn't he?!

    The McMahons are in the White House!

    That's because you won't dare question anything from him. This man could appoint David Duke to a cabinet position and you would salivate over it.

    No, it's because I voted for him because I believe in him. When he fails, I'll be the first to admit it. Just like I was man enough to admit when he did or said dumb shit during the election. The McCain line and the Muslim soldiers mom
    Line were attacked by me as is his stand on pro-life. I don't agree on everything he says, but when he's appointing people, I have no reason to second guess him.

    Funny how people he pick are called racists, but when Obama appointed Loretta Lynch, it was a fine choice. Please.

    The dumb part is what does Linda know about running small business? Perhaps if she lets her husband program Raw on his own she can find out in 5 years.

    The Deadspin article HR posted claims the McMahons donated $11 million to Trump's campaign through Super PACs and personal donations.

    So yeah, that's all this is. You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours. Now someone that has insider knowledge of every loophole possible to not give employees proper benefits and is known for crushing actual small businesses is head of SMALL BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION.

    If this wasn't all so horrible I'd be in tears from laughing so hard. The guy hasn't even taken office yet. Buckle up, world. Things are only going to get worse.

    That's what actually makes me most want to laugh but you summed up exactly why it's not funny.

    I'm not sure the WWE's crushing the indy circuits is a practical way to determine how she'll work in a small business administration role, nor do I have any idea how impactful this role is in general. (Though the way the WWE treats employees... yikes)

    But Donald Trump is the President Elect, small business was never going to be a priority.

    And I thought Vince McMahon bragging that the president was in the WWE Hall of Fame for the next four years would be the only wrestling connection to the White House.

    There's nothing practical about any of this, so we judge off what info we have.

    Well that's not really true. Linda McMahon runs a successful business, has some government influence, and was given a good title that doesn't have a large amount of influence to my knowledge. If you're going to give a token job away to a big donor, this is considerably more practical than saying the former mayor of New York should be Secretary of State.

    The wrestling business is just a carny business taken globally, it's like appointing a circus ring master.

    Because New York really went to shit when he was mayor.... oh wait, actually, NY was rid of the Mafia, the hookers and drugs on Times Square and the homeless epidemic.... but yeah, God forbid you were an emo in that time; so terrifying.

    The only thing terrifying here is your support of the blatant corruption and unconstitutional tactics used by your local government during that time period.

    My concern isn't his record as the Mayor of New York a decade ago, it is that being mayor of NYC has nothing to do with being the most important diplomat in the world, especially for a President that doesn't believe it's important to go to intelligence briefings.
