Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 29, 2016

President-elect Donald J. Trump has selected Elaine L. Chao, the former Labor secretary under George W. Bush, to head the Department of Transportation, elevating someone who has been a fixture of the Republican establishment in Washington to a post that could become integral to shaping one of the most ambitious parts of Mr. Trump's agenda.
Mr. Trump, a real estate magnate, has said infrastructure redevelopment is a priority. And Ms. Chao has experience -- politically and personally -- in navigating the competing centers of power in the capital.

The choice of Ms. Chao, which is expected to be announced later Tuesday, was confirmed by someone with direct knowledge of Mr. Trump's decision.

The selection, which requires confirmation by the Senate, is the latest as Mr. Trump continues to fill senior posts in his administration.

The transportation post could become a vital one in a Trump cabinet given Mr. Trump's desires to see $1 trillion spent on revitalizing the nation's roads, bridges, ports and other systems of public transit.

If any Dems vote against her Cabinet nomination, they are racist and misogynist.

The Left:

Trump hates women...

Trump hates immigrants...

Trump hates minorities...

Reality:

Two of his first five Cabinet picks are women, as is his pick for UN Ambassador. Nine women are under serious consideration for seven of the ten remaining Cabinet Positions, as are six "People of Color" for five of the ten remaining Cabinet positions.

As for Elaine Chao, she immigrated here from Taiwan as a child, is a former Labor Secretary under GWB (only Cabinet member to serve all 8 years). She received a B.A. in Economics from Mount Holyoke College in 1975 and an MBA from Harvard Business School in 1979 and has received 36 honorary doctorates, most recently a Doctor of Humane Letters from Georgetown University.

We all know that Trump loves women, especially those married to someone else.

Let's agree together that the man is a sexual creep, then we can examine why he's a bigot.

#6 Why the thought stopping phrase? Let's examine why the man is a bigot right now.

Let's hear you concede that Donald is a sexual creep, as asked for in my post.

Make a clear admission as to that fact, and then we can go on. But if you won't even judge the man from what's definitely known of his relationship history, I don't want to waste my time discussing his bigotry with you. You will have proved yourself as big a creep as he is.

Zed,

There isn't much negative that you can say about Trump that I am going to disagree with.

So you just don't want to be honest, I've got that.

As another poster said, you guys have ceded the moral high ground in every respect.

You've said that ad-nauseam, a thousand times. When is it going to sink in to your thick scull that the Clintonites hate you and will always hate you?

He was colorful, to say the least.

His DR wars with Boyd and Alex were legendary.

Elaine L. Chao, the former Labor secretary under George W. Bush,

Millions of jobs lost under W, but it will be different this time.

It doesn't take much for the right to play identity politics, in spite of all your complaints about how bad it is.

I eagerly await using the tactic when Governor Marco Rubio runs for president in 2024. Because if you're not supporting our first Hispanic president, you're probably a bigot.
