Loyal Opposition: Trump has nominated the sitting CEO of Exxonmobil to be secretary of state.

Narrator: So how are the democrats attacking a sec'y of state candidate who's the sitting CEO of Exxon Mobil? Woman: He's too close to Russia. Man 3: Besties with Putin! Narrator: Talk about missing the point. Woman: Heinrich Himmler has a terrible driving record. Man 4: 48 in a 35! WTF?!?
