Trump's Latest Nominee Just Dropped Out After Embarrassing Video Emerged Online

By Mustafa Gatollari

Hey, remember back when Donald Trump was campaigning to be president, he claimed he'd hire the best people for government jobs? 

Not only has he not hired the best people, Trump hasn't even managed to hire mediocre people, if you ask me. There are tons of duds in his administration that were either ultimately fired, or rejected to begin with.

Especially when it comes to his choices for a lifetime appointment position as a federal judge. Three of his nominees for the vacant position were dismantled in their interviews, failing to answer basic legal questions. The most recent of Trump's nominees, Matthew Petersen, perhaps had the most embarrassing Q&A yet, something that he himself called "the two worst minutes on television."
