The Intelligencer supports the trophy hunters packing the Trump wildlife protection board

This goes way beyond the foxes guarding the hen house

Last Thursday, the Associated Press distributed the following story on a new federal board:

Trump makes more appointments

Three more foxes for the hen house

Silvrback blog image

Earlier this month I highlighted Trump's appointment of a former coal company president whose company had a history of mine safety violations to head the Mine Safety and Health Administration.
