5. It has to be

an interesting resume that she'll be carrying around in search of new work.

But then again, we know that someone in the 1% will make sure that she's fine....

10. Someone should do "Frozen" meme about her.

I'm betting that the temperature in DC went up a few degrees when she left.

11. "we're told she chose to resign. Her resignation letter was quite clear about that ...

... once reporters pried it loose from the dagger in her back." https://www.wonkette.com/kirstjen-nielsen-worst-hits

And yes, OF COURSE internal DHS documents later showed that family separation had been the intention all along, not just an unfortunate side effect of criminally charging all border crossings. In fact, it was two sets of documents; after the second became public in January, Sen Jeff Merkley (D- Oregon) quaintly suggested Nielsen be investigated for lying to Congress.

Of course, immigration isn't the ONLY thing Nielsen likes to prevaricate about. She also repeatedly bullshitted about whether she thought Russia had interfered in the 2016 election, because why would the secretary of Homeland Security really know anything about that? Let us never accuse her of not being versatile in her ability to align her thinking with that of Donald Trump.

Despite all of that loyalty to Trump -- born more of opportunism than ideology, according to those who knew her -- Nielsen was constantly derided by the Great Man, because she didn't make migrants vanish the way she was supposed to.
