WASHINGTON – Donald Trump nominates Richard Vernon as his new Education Secretary.
Donald Trump has broken with tradition and nominated a fictional character Richard Vernon as his Education Secretary. Gleason will head up the Department of Education in another move set to shake up the Washington establishment. Vernon promises to promote a series of initiatives to make detention of weirdly electic group of students compulsory.
He told the Studio Exec political correspondent:
To begin with, I will put a stop to any ruckus going on. That’s point one.
Is there any truth to the accusation that you stole clothes from Barry Manilow’s wardrobe?
I make $31,000 a year and I have a home and I’m not about to throw it all away on some punk like you. But someday when you’re outta here and you’ve forgotten all about this place and they’ve forgotten all about you, and you’re wrapped up in your own pathetic life, I’m gonna be there. That’s right. And I’m gonna kick the living shit out of you. I’m gonna knock your dick in the dirt.
I was just asking.
Don’t mess with the bull, young man. You’ll get the horns.
Richard Vernon will be taking over from Ed Rooney on January 20, 2017.
