The Best People

June 16, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Remember how Trump said he would hire the best people? Well, he never actually said best for who.

Lynne Patton has been appointed to oversee the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Region II, which includes New York and New Jersey, where she’ll oversee distribution of billions of taxpayer dollars.

Who is Lynne Patton?  Honey, she’s a party planner for the Trump family who even oversaw Eric Trump’s wedding.

“Responsible for organizing, executing and assisting with upscale events and celebrity golf tournaments,” her LinkedIn profile says. “Handle celebrity talent acquisition for various marketing projects, philanthropic events and golf tournaments.”

Region II oversees payments of HUD funds to properties owned by . . . are you ready for this? Trump and Kushner.

I got the best frauds. And the best liars too.

Thanks to Carl and Alfredo over at the Dairy Queen for the heads up.

    I’m sorry, Juanita Jean, I’m running out of “funny” with this malfeasance.

  2. Maybe she’s going to let them eat cake?

  3. Jane & PKM says:

    Papa, crumbs. She may or may not allow a crumb to be dropped and thus consumed by the poors. An entire wedding cake?!? That is not the way of these austerity budget driven wannabe aristocrats.

    Aristocrats? Autocrats? Meh. Plain old mean rats.

    Betsy Devos has been busy too. Too late for Trump U, but she’s been busy giving aid and comfort to scamming “for profit” universities. My Granddad told me about those schools. He said in his day they advertised in the back of matchbooks.

    Not to be outdone in the scheme of mean, little old Jefferson Beauregard Sessions has been busy rolling back civil rights to the pre-Lincoln days. Also his inquiring little mind has a question for Bob Mueller: “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘Russians’ is.”

    The snacilbupeR Party is evolving. Unfortunately for us, that’s a move from obstructionism to destruction.

    …and the best foreign agents and the best grifters…

  5. charles phillips says:

    Stop me if I’m wrong, but wouldn’t she be the one to help Eric Trump defraud his own charity?

    I’m layin’ in more beer…

  6. Wait a minute! Doesn’t HUD do interior decorating?

  7. Where’s slipstream? Alaska has a brilliant story about a different party planner.

  8. What can you expect from an HUD run by a goofy ex-surgeon with zero HUD experience? These fools either think that government is so simple that anybody can do it, or they put these unqualified clowns in there because they want the government to collapse. I’m betting on B, but A is possible too.

  9. JAKvirginia says:

    Well, thanks! Now I’ve got the Looney Tunes theme song playing in my head!

    Th- Th- That’s all folks!

    Practice saying, “Heckuva job, Brownie — I mean Lynne”.
    You’ll be ready when the inevitable happens.

  11. The Trump regime is definitely becoming a kakistocratic kleptocracy.

  12. From party planner to urban development in one smooth move? I hope she realizes her new job demands more than twirling string lights and crepe paper streamers across crumbling inner city buildings.

  13. Trump is running scared.
    He knows he has a limited time to make the most amount of money before he has to resign or get booted out of office.
    Everything he does benefits him, not our country.

    We can not let him resign. Pence will pardon him and he will get off wealthier and not a care in the world.
    We have to hold him and the Republicans who supported him accountable.

  14. Marge Wood says:

    HUD money often gets misused on a small scale but this is ridiculous.

  15. charles phillips says:

    Look, I’m not kidding; Ms. Patton is being set up to act as Eric Trump’s safety valve, cutout, fall gal, sacrificial lamb, first-person-under-Eric’s-bus-sorta-gal.

    Somebody needs to paint that on both sides of a sandwich board and follow her around until she takes the hint.
