Best of the Best: Shanahan is out !
Did you see T-rump's "best of the best" pick on television tonight?
Yes, T-rump's pick for Patrick Shanahan to go forward as being 'Secretary of Defense' (he's currently 'acting' SoD), kind of blew up all over T-rump, as Shanahan stepped away. Why? Because his 'best of the best' has a rather shady past which the Washington Post reported this past weekend.
Seems Shanahan's 17 year old son 'brutally beat his mother with a baseball bat' in November, 2011, and Shanahan rushed to his son's defense. He also forgot to mention this while 'applying for the job'.
T-rump had a nice explanation for Shanahan's departure which was shared on television. Tweeted T-rump, "Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan, who has done a wonderful job, has decided not to go forward with his confirmation process so that he can devote more time to his family."
