[VIDEO] Morning Joe is not a fan of anything or anyone that supports President Donald Trump. That led to this exchange on Joe Scarborough’s MSNBC morning show. But this will not go in the direction that you may have thought. Mr. Scarborough wants to know why Trump’s nominee for Director of the CIA, Gina Haspel, is a problem for the nomination. You will enjoy the hemming and hawing.
As Written and Reported By Matt Vespa for Townhall:
Gina Haspel, President Trump’s nominee for Central Intelligence Agency Director, has earned the support of one Democrat, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), but her nomination process is far from finished. And her confirmation is not yet certain. It’s quite possible that other red state Democrats who will be fighting for their political lives this season will follow suit. In the meantime, we have to choke on the bipartisan hypocrisy over her nomination. Haspel has had a lengthy and honorable career as an intelligence operative and official. She’s spent over thirty years at the CIA. She’s beyond qualified to lead the agency. She’s a patriot and has done things to protect us all. That being said, she was nominated by Trump, so she’s the devil incarnate to the Left. If Obama had nominated her, it would be a watershed moment: the first woman director with impeccable credentials that’s a worthy chapter in the Lean In era of feminism and women in the workplace. But again, she’s a Trump nominee, so she’s not any of those things. Proof positive that to be considered even a woman in the ranks of the feminist left, you have to be a liberal and you can only work with liberals. I honestly have no clue what Haspel’s political views are and I don’t care. In this line of work, no one cares about your views of abortion, tax cuts, or gun rights, which makes feminist criticism of her nomination all the more maddening. It’s a clown show. It’s red meat to serve to the Democratic base—and it’s appallingly shameless. ……
