Trump’s Cabinet From Hell Just Keeps Growing……

Well, Donald Trump has just lifted another rock and from underneath plucked a Labor Secretary to add to his cabinet-from-hell.

He’s a fast-food executive known for his opposition to raising the minimum wage, is against widening eligibility for overtime pay and has criticised Obamacare because the health care premiums working class people must buy means they don’t spend as much time and money in his restaurants (but presumably they are a lot healthier as a result).

The guy’s name, believe it or not, is Puzder and he is CEO of fast food outfits called Carls Jr and Hardee’s, neither of whose premises or food I have ever sampled or would want to sample.

This is what he looks like:

Trump's Secretary of Labor, Andrew Puzder, who opposes the minimum wage increases

Trump’s Secretary of Labor, Andrew Puzder, who opposes minimum wage increases

Puzder’s advertising strategy is a simple one. Link unhealthy, fat-friendly food with sexy young Ivanka Trump-like women in suggestive ads.

Presumably that is what brought Puzder to Trump’s attention. And presumably this is what the populist President-elect thinks populism is about: less bread and more circuses.

Here is a sample:

Here’s another:

Trump is far from finished, by the way. He still has to fill the most important Cabinet slot, Secretary of State, who will, God help us, be responsible for implementing Trump’s foreign policy ideas.
