45 names Giuliani spawn and his "body man" Nick Luna to Holocaust Museum council

https://www.haaretz.com/amp/us-news/trump-names-rudy-giuliani-s-son-two-other-aides-to-holocaust-museum-council-1.9379630

"President Donald Trump named three White House aides to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council, including the son of his lawyer Rudy Giuliani, on Wednesday.

Along with Andrew Giuliani, who works in the Office of Liaison, which interacts with interest groups, the others named to the voluntary posts are Mitchell Webber, a lawyer in the Office of the White House Counsel, and Nick Luna, Trump’s “body man,” or personal attendant.
....

Only Webber, who is Jewish and wrote about Jewish and Israeli issues for the conservative New York Sun over a decade ago, seems to have any record of experience in those areas. As counsel, he has joined White House calls to Jewish community leaders.

Andrew Giuliani, among the few aides who have lasted throughout the presidency, is seen as close to Trump, in part because Trump has known him since infancy and also the president is said to enjoy golfing with the former New York mayor’s son. Giuliani, whose designated special interest group in the Public Liaison office is the sports community, at one point aspired to be a professional golfer.
....
Luna is a former actor who featured in films like “Sammy and Sherlock Can’t Get Any.” The Internet Movie Database summarizes the movie as “A stoner couple spends the day trying to score weed in their dry suburban town.” His LinkedIn page says he trained in comedy."

1. That's horrible

Hopefully its just a 30 day gig and that the other board members speak out strongly.

2. It's a 5-year appointment, and this seems incredibly disrespectful

and just plain stupid.

4. Ugh

Maybe the board has some by-laws to keep these creeps in check.
If they had any character at all, they wouldn't accept.

5. WTAF?

What's up with Trump making all of these inappropriate appointments to unpaid boards? Does he think they are rewards of some kind?

I really don't get it at all. I'm sure the Holocaust Museum is just as puzzled as I am.

6. Maybe they want something that gives them a chance to pad their resume

and potentially "network" with some influential and successful individuals. Also, I wondered if even though the position is unpaid, there might be some perks like free travel and hotel expenses for board activities. If so, I'm sure his toadies would use their hotel vouchers at his hotel.
