After his shock election win president-elect Donald Trump is quickly pulling together names of people who might serve in his cabinet. And because Trump courted some bizarre figures, some of the choices are pretty eye raising.
According to WEHW radio he is considering conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for White House press secretary. Trump has appeared on Jones’ show “Infowars.” Jones believes the world is being controlled by a cabal of shape-shifting aliens, also thinks the government is putting chemicals in orange juice to turn men gay and has stated 9/11 was staged by the government.
Buzz Feed stated Trump is considering supporters such as former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson for cabinet-level positions.
Palin’s disastrous media performances were largely responsible for sinking Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign in 2008. In 2014, her scandal-ridden family was involved in a fight at a party and in July her son Track plead guilty to domestic assault.
Carson, once a highly-regarded figure in the black community, also ran for president alongside Trump. But he made anti-gay comments and also claimed the Egyptian pyramids were created to store grain, leaving his reputation in tatters.
