Trump has named a CNBC contributor as his new top economic adviser, CNN reported Wednesday night. Larry Kudlow will take over the top role at the White House National Economic Council following the typically Trumpian departure of Gary Cohn earlier this month.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a subsequent statement that the administration will "work to have an orderly transition," which is a hilarious collection of words given the source.
Thursday morning, Trump's disturbing all-face avatar started bubbling up in the timeline thanks to his own statement on the Kudlow hiring. As usual, Trump decided to utilize a random capitalization technique often favored by people who don't quite grasp language in general. He also tagged the tweet with "MAGA," which sources say is an acronym for either Mucus And Gravy Ashtray or Make America Gangrenous Again.
This news or whatever you want to call it comes just after Trump poached his own state-run media for the role of acting undersecretary of state for public diplomacy. Heather Nauert, most known for her Fox & Friends complicity, replaces the recently fired Steve Goldstein. This week also saw the firing of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who found out he got canned by seeing Trump's tweet about it.
