President Joe Biden isn’t fooling around with Trump appointees. When he first took office, he fired Trump-appointed National Labor Relations Board General Counsel Peter Robb after refusing to step down from his position. And then, President Biden fired the Trump-appointed general counsel for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Sharon Gustafson, who refused to resign from her position. And he’s doing it again with 11 officials appointed to military service academy advisory boards by the twice-impeached one-term president, telling them to resign or be dismissed, according to CNN’s KFile.
And some of these names are very familiar.
“The officials asked to resign include prominent former Trump officials like former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, former senior counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway and former national security adviser H.R. McMaster,” the outlet reports. “They were appointed to the advisory boards of the Naval Academy, Air Force Academy and West Point, respectively.”
“Other more prominent names include Heidi Stirrup, the former White House liaison to the Justice Department who was banned from entering the building after she attempted to access sensitive information about possible election fraud in December 2020, and retired Col. Douglas Macgregor, a former ambassador pick and Pentagon official with a history of controversial comments,” the report continues. “The duo were appointed to the boards of the Air Force Academy and West Point.”

“Other appointees who have been asked to resign are Michael Wynne, who was appointed to the board of the Air Force Academy; retired Gen. John Keane, Meaghan Mobbs, and David Urban appointed to the board of West Point; and John Coale and Russell Vought, Trump’s former director of the Office of Management and Budget, appointed to the Naval Academy’s board,” the report adds.
It looks like this guy will get fired.

Politico reports that when the outlet asked if he received a similar letter, Sebastian Gorka, who was named by Trump to the National Security Education Board, only replied to a text message by saying: “Hey CuckBoy go lick some Democrat’s boots.”
Sean Spicer responded on Twitter, apparently unaware that President Biden can do more than one thing at a time.
Instead of focusing on the stranded Americans left in #Afghanistan, President Biden is trying to terminate the Trump appointees to the Naval Academy, West Point and Air Force Academy.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but if I were asked to resign, I wouldn’t keep returning to the office, pretending that nothing has happened. But, these are Trump appointees. We’re not saying that everyone Trump appointed is a piece of shit, but they certainly didn’t mind being in the former president’s company, and they tied their names to his toxic presidency.
