Could you imagine a fast food mogul was going to be the pick for Labor Secretary?
The first nominee who couldn't clear the hurdles is the guy who created the idea of making food more appealing by having scantly clad women eating a huge hamburger.
Former CEO of Carls, Jr./Hardee's Andy Puzder withdraws his bid to become the Department of Labor secretary. Seven Republicans had voiced concern that Puzder's support for immigration and sexual harassment claims would make him a toxic cabinet member.
Mind you that he also has issues that came back to haunt him. His ex-wife talked to Oprah in the 1990s. Puzder's ex said he was physically abuse and that he "vowed revenge" toward her for speaking out.
When he took control of Carl's Jr. and Hardee's he turned the company around. He made the fast food giant successful by getting women to model in skimpy wear while chowing down seductively on hamburgers.
He was a fierce opponent against the rising of the minimum wage. He wouldn't even support the $15 labor movement.
The companies went though federal employment discrimination lawsuits. It probably had more than most companies in the fast food industry.
He said that machines could make food faster than a human.
No Democrats supported him. That included the independents Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Angus King (I-ME). Even that asshole Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) refused a vote.
It took seven Republican senators to publicly speak out against this pick.
In gratitude, Puzder said a heartfelt thank you to the fuhrer.
"I want to thank President Trump for his nomination. I also want to thank my family, and my many supporters --- employees, businesses, friends and people who have voiced their praise and hopeful optimism for the policies and new thinking I would have brought to America as Secretary of Labor."
So another scandal for the Trumpster.
Wonder who's going to fill the void of being the labor secretary?
