Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker's old tweets are really something
On Wednesday, Donald Trump ended the midterms news cycle by effectively firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The acting Attorney General is now Matt Whitaker, Sessions' former chief of staff and a man who used to mooch WiFi from a taco restaurant.
We know the latter thanks to his old tweets, which he has not deleted.
There are many reasons to feel uneasy about Whitaker's new role: his use of the phrase "Mueller lynch mob," his disturbing fixation on Hillary Clinton, and the fact that he (unlike Sessions) probably won't be recused from the Russia investigation.
There are also several reasons to be super weirded out by him, including his former campaign web domain — now a mirror for a Russian sports betting website — and his confident declaration that "Dave Matthews is the Jimmy Buffett of our time."
A few of his stranger assertions:
Weird dude! Also, very dangerous.
We imagine these tweets might not be long for the internet, so enjoy them while you can. Use the Taco John's WiFi if you have to. We won't tell.
