Report: WaPo Hires John Podesta To Write A Regular Column About Trump

The Washington Post has hired former Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta to write a “regular” column “about President Trump,” reports The Hill.

Washington Post editorial page editor Fred Hiatt said, “no one knows more about how Washington works, how the White House operates, and how policy ideas are translated into reality than John Podesta.”

“His long experience in Congress, inside two Democratic White Houses and on the front lines of numerous presidential campaigns, will offer readers vital insight into Washington and politics at the start of a new era.”

This won’t be the first time Podesta has written for the Washington Post.

Back in December – after Hillary Clinton’s crushing election night defeat – he penned an article titled, “Something is deeply broken at the FBI.”

Just three days ago, he wrote a piece called “Trump’s dangerous strategy to undermine reality.”

Many people have taken to social media to mock the Washington Post’s decision to hire Podesta.

“His first column should be about proper cyber security,” joked Facebook user Tim Marks. “You know, don’t click on links embedded in emails and enter your password at the ‘site’ it sends you to. Also, don’t send stuff by email that you wouldn’t want the rest of the world to know about.”

“That will be SO insightful and well rounded,” wrote Lucy Feingold. “Are you kidding? Way to go Washington Post – seems like you are proving Trump’s point.”

“I’m sure that will be as objective as the rest of their coverage,” said John Burger. “Here’s a guess what his first column will be: it’s the Russians and Comey’s fault.”

The mockery is rampant on Twitter, too.

    As an aussie who usually would not give a shit about your politics except the left has taken hold here, but with trump at the helm the grip should soften enough to push back. Sorta hard when all of our parties are into it in some form and thepopulation is drunk or at the pub. love milos articles but i gotta say, its you guys in the comments that make my day. So cheers from at least one aussie.
