Two More Trump Nominees Approved By A Landslide -- January 31, 2017

Interior Department, Ryan Zinke, 16 - 6.
Energy Department, Rick Perry, 16 - 7.

I would mention this to my wife, that Rick Perry was approved by the committee, but I look forward to living a few more years. I am unable to think of one person my wife detests more than Rick Perry. Maybe Vladimir Putin, but it would be close.
