In today's edition of 'completely mental Donald Trump news' it's been revealed that the man in the Big Seat only wants to hire handsome people for roles in his cabinet.
As written in the Washington Post, those close to Don have come to accept that he has a particular aesthetic in mind when it comes to hiring, one that currently seems to consist of: 'Old white man who believes that every waitress he comes into contact with fancies him. Definitely fancies him.'
"He likes people who present themselves very well and he's very impressed when somebody has a background of being good on television because he thinks it's a very important medium for public policy," said Chris Ruddy, chief executive of Newsmax Media and a longtime friend of Trump. "Don't forget, he's a showbiz guy. He was at the pinnacle of showbiz and he thinks about showbiz. He sees this as a business that relates to the public."
To be fair, the man does know showbiz. Just look at these tweets:
As absurdly amusing as this news might seem, we now understand that the man who is but a month away from becoming the most powerful leader in the world is basing decisions about high-level positions on whether or not he feels that a candidate is handsome and presentable.
The Post article continues: "His personnel choices show signs of being "cast for the TV show of his administration," said Bob Killian, founder of a branding agency based in Chicago. "They are all perfectly coifed people who look like they belong on a set."
There was also that time when he said that Hilary Clinton lacked "a presidential look, and you need a presidential look."
It looks like 2017's going to be a laugh, then...
