A #NeverTrump icon – who hated then-candidate Donald J. Trump so much that he attempted to deny him Virginia’s pledged delegates at the 2016 Republican National Convention – has now been tapped for a job within the Trump administration.
“President Trump has tapped former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli for a post as an immigration adviser at the Department of Homeland Security, the White House confirmed Tuesday,” according to The Washington Times.
Cuccinelli is best known for his temper tantrum on the floor of the RNC in Cleveland in 2016. At the time, Big League Politics editor-in-chief Patrick Howley reported for Breitbart:
Cuccinelli…spoke at the convention’s Rules Committee hearing late last week in favor of a “conscience” voting provision that would have un-bound Trump’s pledged delegates on the first ballot. Cuccinelli was also involved in pushing Monday to stop the Rules Committee’s package from being adopted on the convention floor.
In what became a viral video, Cuccinelli can be seen slamming his credentials on the ground in protest, desperately trying to be recognized by the chair.
Apparently, disgracing himself and the Republican party in front of the entire country was not enough to dissuade Trump from handing him a role in the administration. There was a great deal of speculation that Trump would create an “immigration czar” position, though its scope was never specifically defined. According to multiple reports, Cuccinelli’s role will not be that of “immigration czar.” The scope of his new job is still undefined.
Cuccinelli’s name was floated alongside Kris Kobach, a known border hawk and former Kansas Secretary of State, who many in the Trump base believed was the right man for the job.

PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks
The Democrat complained about masks.
New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.
Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”
This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.
Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.
“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.
Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
