Trump’s Private Pilot Might Be the New Head of the FAA

It’s disappointing to see that Trump can just, say things, and he gets backed up by his stupid cronies. The latest claim that is super confusing, is that Trump’s private pilot is qualified to run the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration).

Trump’s cabinet is chock full of unqualified people running departments they don’t quite understand. Take for instance Betsy DeVos, head of the Department of Education. DeVos has never set foot into a public school, except the time she had to be escorted out because she was unwelcome, and her children all received private educations. Or maybe Scott Pruitt, the administrator of the EPA (environmental protection agency), who in 2010, dissolved the Environmental Protection unit when he became Attorney General.

In keeping with tradition, Trump is seriously contemplating hiring John Dunkin. He has already been recommended, and according to several sources, Dunkin has even sat for one interview.

“I have a pilot who’s a real expert,” Trump said last year, according to the Washington Post. “My pilot, he’s a smart guy, and he knows what’s going on.”

At least he’s consistent on that…

And obviously, when Trump says something, his administration backs it up: “He’s on the list because he’s the president’s pilot, but if he gets the job it won’t be because he’s the president’s pilot,” said another source.

Apparently, Dunkin really won Trump over when he claimed that delays wouldn’t happen if only he were head of the FAA.

A pilot could dream.
