Ken Cuccinelli Tried to Deny Trump the Presidential Nomination. He’s Been Rewarded With a Job at DHS.

The avowed #NeverTrump figurehead is inexplicably being hired to advise Trump on immigration policy.

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.

“You All Think I’m Kidding, Don’t You?”: Joe Biden Calls Himself Kamala Harris’ RUNNING MATE

The Democrats aren’t even attempting to hide it anymore.

While campaigning in Georgia Tuesday, Joe Biden once again drew attention for something he said. This time he referred to himself as Kamala Harris’ running mate.

“My name’s Joe Biden, I’m Jill Biden’s husband, and I’m Kamala’s running mate,” Biden said to what was probably a small crowd. A few people cheered while he chuckled and followed up by saying, “You all think I’m kidding, don’t you?”

This is no flub or gaffe; he knew exactly what he was saying. Back in September Kamala Harris accidentally spilled the beans when she referred to “a Harris administration, together with Joe Biden.” There have been at least a couple similar “mistakes” from Joe in the recent past as well.

So either it’s a running gag or they’re being completely honest about giving Joe the role of a figurehead de jure president while Kamala runs the ship as the de facto president. The Trump campaign ought to continually hammer this point as Election Day draws near.
