A congressional reporter for the Washington Post viciously attacked President Trump’s new picks to head the Department of State and the Central Intelligence Agency Tuesday; calling the new directors “bomb throwers” and “torture overseers.”
The Post’s Erica Werner slammed the President’s appointees on social media within minutes of his announcement; suggesting his choices would face an uphill battle during the required Senate confirmation hearings on Capitol Hill.
“A Benghazi bomb-thrower will be SecState and a torture overseer will be CIA director — IF CONFIRMED BY THE SENATE,” she tweeted.
