"Trump appoints speechwriter fired for attending conference with white nationalists to commission

that preserves Holocaust memorials"

WASHINGTON — A former speechwriter fired from the White House in 2018 for attending a conference at which white supremacists were also present has been appointed to a commission tasked with preserving Holocaust-related sites across Europe.

The former speechwriter, Darren Beattie, will join the Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad, according to a press release sent by the White House on Tuesday evening.

“Huge honor and responsibility!” Beattie tweeted the day after the announcement was made. He did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

The appointment comes shortly after Beattie, in comments made on Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s show, compared supposed efforts to oust President Trump to the “color revolutions” that defeated authoritarian leaders across Eastern Europe. Beattie said those efforts were being engineered by Norm Eisen, an ethics attorney who served in the Obama administration. As he described the case against Eisen, Carlson cut Beattie off, thus concluding the segment.

1. Is there nothing so vile that it's beyond Trump's hatred of America for not re-electing him?

Guess not. The man just doesn't give a flying fuck about anything but vengence, hatred, and anger.

2. I'm torn between whether it's that or Trump's usual hiring standard...

"Saw him on FOX and liked how he sounded."

3. Only in a very perverted DT world

do you hire a guy, who at the very least mingles himself with white supremist groups, to oversee preserving Holocaust sites in Europe.

Talk about irony and Cognitive Dissonance.

4. Trump's hard core base is racist end of story.

And these are the people who will fly their Trump, American, and rebel battle flags
from their pick ups and go to his "stop the steal" marches.

Although he only has 62 days left.
