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 parent company CKE, has officially withdrawn his nomination!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…

That's thanks to a new mini-scandal in which it turns out Andrew Puzder, the CEO of Hardee's and Carl's Jr. parent company CKE, had undocumented labor in his own home!

Dun dun DUN!

Late Night Hosts React To Donald Trump's Latest Disastrous Cabinet Picks — And His Meeting With Kanye West!

no title

Throughout his campaign, Donald Trump swore against aligning himself with big bankers and corporate executives as a part of his populist scam rhetoric.

But as the president-elect fills his cabinet, it's become quite clear he's surrounding himself exclusively with rich donors… and one narcissistic rapper!

On Tuesday, late night hosts pounced on the incoming POTUS' recent cabinet appointments, such as Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State, that have gone against what Trump preached during his campaign.

Seth Meyers pointed out this hypocrisy on Late Night, calling out some of Trump's questionable picks — like Hardee's/Carl's Jr. CEO Andrew Puzder for labor secretary and longtime Goldman Sachs banker Steven Mnuchin for treasury secretary.

But it was Stephen Colbert who dissected Trump's most high profile sit-down at Trump Tower — his meeting with Kanye West!

The Late Show host joked that the two were going to release an album (titled "The Deportation of Pablo," of course) but cautioned that their meeting was a security risk, quipping:

This is as unsurprising as it is disturbing…

Following Donald Trump's announcement that he had picked Hardee's and Carl's Jr CEO Andrew Puzder for Secretary of Labor, disgusting claims surfaced from his past.

According to the River Front Times, in 1989 Andrew's first wife Lisa Hennings accused her husband of hitting and then throwing her to the floor during an argument. Lisa also claimed Puzder unplugged the house phone so she wouldn't be able to call the police.

In response to the accusations, the CEO admitted that he"grabbed her by the shoulders and pushed her back," so she wouldn't hurt herself.

Um….

In the exes' divorce docs, Ms. Hennings also claims in the late '70s neighbors called the cops after one of their fights turned into vicious plate-throwing. The filing also cites an incident in 1985 when Andrew allegedly punched her in the face.
