Ingraham for Deportation Czar?

Ingraham for Deportation Czar?

It's her portfolio, after all:
The popular conservative radio talk show host is willing to accept the position of White House press secretary in Donald Trump’s administration, but she wants a bigger title, a role in policymaking and a seat at the decision-making table with the president, according to a source familiar with the discussions.
Ingraham has made no secret of her interest in the press secretary gig, a high-profile position that could put her in front of the White House press corps —and in front of the cameras —every day. Ingraham, a Fox News contributor and former Supreme Court clerk, is against same-sex marriage and was a supporter of Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. during the campaign – a ban he has softened on since clinching the Republican nomination last May.

“I would say it’s not broad enough,” Ingraham said on her radio show in December of 2015.

Ingraham has confirmed that her name is in the mix and hinted, in her public comments addressing the speculation, that she wants a role in shaping the Trump agenda. But she apparently wants a title that elevates her beyond just dominating the spin cycle.

I'd like to give a big shout-out to ABC for mainstreaming this odious bigot.

Oh, I'm sorry, I'm not allowed to call anyone an odious bigot. Let me re-phrase that: I'd like to give ABC a big shout-out for mainstreaming this person who is feeling anxious about a changing America and is hurt by the left's cruel and unjust characterization of her as someone who is less than empathetic toward ethnic and racial minorities.
