Donald Trump's pick for Labor Secretary is out!
Andrew Puzder, the CEO of Hardee's and Carl's Jr. parent company CKE, has officially withdrawn his nomination!
After a mini-scandal involving an undocumented worker, more scrutiny led to the discovery of charges of spousal abuse by his ex-wife, who apparently appeared incognito on The Oprah Winfrey Show in the 1980s.

Add that to the fact he is against the minimum wage, in favor of replacing workers with more automation, and has been accused of mistreating his own workers, and you have a pretty terrible looking candidate with little chance of confirmation.
Bernie Sanders explained:
"The simple truth is that given his relationship to employees at the companies he runs, he was not fit to lead a department responsible for defending workers' rights."
Even Conservatives didn't think he could get confirmed.
FINALLY, one of these horrific picks shut down. Along with Michael Flynn stepping down and the Muslim Ban getting repelled, Trump is having a bad run!
Sadly, we're sure another awful name is on its way…
