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.

Democrat Lawmaker: Send Trump to War Crimes Tribunal for Recommending Hydroxychloroquine

Trump derangement syndrome hits a new low.

Published

A Democrat state lawmaker from the state of Ohio has suggested that she will be recommending President Donald Trump to The Hague for war crimes because he suggested hydroxychloroquine could be used to treat coronavirus.

“I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow,” Ohio State Rep. Tavia Galonski wrote in a tweet on Sunday night. “Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one.”

President Donald Trump has come under fire from the fake news media for trying to get medicines and treatments not approved by the FDA into the hands of individuals afflicted with coronavirus.

Trump has been a proponent of bypassing FDA regulations in certain instances to get medicine to the sick since he signed the “Right to Try Act” into law in 2018.

“People who are terminally ill should not have to go from country to country to seek a cure — I want to give them a chance right here at home,” Trump said in May 2018 before he signed the law allowing experimental medications and treatments to be used in certain instances.

A study of doctors throughout the world has found that hydroxychloroquine is the “most effective therapy” for coronavirus. The study, conducted by the health care polling firm Sermo, found that hydroxychloroquine is underprescribed in the US in comparison to other countries.

“Outside the US, hydroxychloroquine was equally used for diagnosed patients with mild to severe symptoms whereas in the US it was most commonly used for high risk diagnosed patients,” the survey found.

Trump is repeating what the doctors are saying regarding coronavirus, but the Democrats are desperate to stifle possible solutions if it means scoring political points.

“I am a fan of that [drug] and we’ll see what happens. I have seen things that are impressive. We’ll see. We’ll know soon. When you get to safety, this is prescribed for many years for people to combat malaria, which was a big problem,” Trump said about hydroxychloroquine.

“Everybody knows the level of the negatives and positives, but I will say that I am positive when it comes to particularly one of these drugs. We’ll see how it works. I am not saying it will but I think that people may be surprised. It is a game-changer. We’ll know very soon,” the president added.

Galonski has not currently followed through on her threat to report President Trump for war crimes because of his advocacy for hydroxychloroquine.
