Texas State Official Who Called Hillary The C-Word Seeks To Be Rewarded With Trump Cabinet Position

Politico reports:

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller may be famous for granting cupcakes “amnesty” from school nutrition rules and calling Hillary Clinton a “c—” on Twitter, but, as he angles for a job in the Trump cabinet, he wants to talk about local vegetables.

The 61-year-old rodeo champion, who’s scheduled to meet with top Trump aides at the president-elect’s Mar-a-Largo resort Friday afternoon to discuss the agriculture secretary opening, is trying to shed his national profile as a defender of deep fryers at a time when even Republicans are embracing policies that sound like they’re straight from first lady Michelle Obama’s platform.

“We’re really working hard on our farm-to-school program,” he told POLITICO Thursday, just before taking off for Florida, where he’s scheduled to meet with White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon.

Miller’s chances of getting the job are unclear. Trump has been auditioning a parade of other candidates and is said to be interested in using the Agriculture slot to diversify his Cabinet with a woman or a Hispanic.

    He wants to talk about local vegetables.. ok, so what is it you want to talk about regarding Texan politicians?

  • bkmn

    Does his farm to school program involve dropping all kids off at farms instead of schools?

    • Cousin Bleh

      Only the hispanic kids.

    • Todd20036

      That or maybe calling cow droppings, “vegetables”.

  • Lazycrockett

    That’s an awful festive outfit h’es sportin.

  • AtticusP

    Makes me wonder how often this “rodeo champion” landed on his fucking head.

  • geoffalnutt

    Lee Press-on Eyebrows!! While the crust browns!

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    I wonder why Trump is even paying lip service to diversity. It’s not like the people who voted for him give a shit about it.

    • Todd20036

      Probably because he wants to prove to the “libtards” that we don’t own diversity

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        His fans are the same ones who threw a hissy fit about him saying Happy Hanukkah.

        • Kim K’s Kute Koochy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          actually I’m surprised that “happy hanukkah” barely made a sound ANYWHERE.
          Which leads to the bewildered observation of how even hard core evangelicals can compromise but some Dems don’t wanna vote Hillary

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      They actually despise diversity – that was the whole point of voting for him.

  • “…and is said to be interested in using the Agriculture slot to diversify his Cabinet with a token woman or a Hispanic.”

    There. Fixed it for ya.

    • perversatile

      -and ”a parade of other candidates” should read
      “a charade of other candidates”

      • William

        “cavalcade of idiots”…

        • MaryOGrady

          Well put.

  • Joe in PA

    Pretty good match I’d say, he’s he certainly familiar with BULLSHIT.

  • This is what you should know about Sid and he seems to fit right in with Trump’s plans

      its time we made peace period “What’s the good of War?’

    • Chucktech

      This was Donald’s secret plan for crushing ISIS on Day One, “I can tell you that…”

  • Sam_Handwich
  • Ninja0980

    Just like Carl Paladino will still be the head of Trump’s NY branch.
    The sooner we get over the notion that anything these folks do or so will cost them the better off we’ll be for the fights ahead.

  • Mike C

    There is no bottom.

    • MBear

      Theyre all bottom feeders

    • Andymac3

      Well, he looks like a power bottom to me. That hat, those boots.

      • MBear

        “Vast hole of need”

        • Andymac3

          I do have a soft spot for fat silver daddies but there is no bigger turn off than hypocrisy, ignorance and hate.

      • Chucktech

        Not until he’s been de-loused or sheep-dipped or whatever you do to fat Texas pigs like this guy.

  • LovesIrony

    deplorable hates government but wants government job

    • JWC

      spelled “Gravy Train”

  • JWC

    If this exercise you call a primary/election has done one thing and one thing only it has SOOO lowered the bar of the United Staes of America in the eyes of the world Trump, if he knew how , should be ashamed

  • Capritaur

    I will hate Donald just slightly less if a “c—” or, god forbid, a “Mexican” takes “his job.”

    • clay

      Please, don’t; it’s just Reince.

      • Capritaur

        It’s not for the sake of any woman or Hispanic person having the job in the name of diversity, but for the sheer sadz of an entitled, racist, and misogynist white man to lose a job to “those people.”

  • Jonathan

    How does Texas produce so many ignorant, hillbilly christian assholes? They’ve practically cornered the market.

    • Max_1

      Wide open plains and lot’s of cows…

    • clay

      head injuries and untested well water?

    • JWC

      you know something even scarier (and tell me if I am wrong) Texas prints all the school books for the nation and can delete any teachings it feel inappropriate In otherwood if your state want to include a chapter on Gays and Texas doesn’t like it Guess what

      • Chucktech

        That’s where we get crap like Moses inspired the Constitution, slaves were “fed and housed workers,” and “Evolution is just a theory, there are other ideas about creation.”

        • JWC

          probably

      • unsavedheathen

        Texas does not print all the school books for the nation. It is the second largest state by population and thus the board charged with approving textbooks for the state has a lot of sway determining what is and isn’t included in books that other states buy. The board is filled with troglodytes and their fingerprints are all over the creation of racist, climate-denying and historically inaccurate textbooks, but they do not print them and the inclusion of obvious “untruths” has been blocked in court several times… religious devotion among the founding fathers, slaves labeled “laborers”, the theft of Texas from Mexico, the ridiculous notion of intelligent design. California with its larger population has a balancing impact on the content of US textbooks.

        • JWC

          that is probaby what I had read thanx for the update

  • Does Trump know the C word? He usually calls it the P word when he grabs it.

    • JCF

      No doubt. When all the rest of us were learning “C is for Cat” as young children, Little Donny was taught by his father something different…

  • Chucktech

    …is said to be interested in using the Agriculture slot to diversify his Cabinet with a woman or a Hispanic.

    So, why’s this big, fat, Texas pig being considered? Maybe Trump thinks big, fat, Texas pigs count as “diverse?”

    • carrot festival

      It is the other white meat.

  • eyechart

    Promoting local vegetables? You mean…

    Dan Patrick?
    Greg Abbott?
    Yourself?
    And Mr. Asparagus Louie Gohmert?

  • IamM

    Is that the Jesus shot guy?

    • IamM

      Yep, it’s the same guy.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sid_Miller_(politician)#.22Jesus_shot.22

      “In February 2015, Miller submitted paperwork for state payment of a trip to Oklahoma, where he claimed he had been invited to visit with Oklahoma lawmakers and visit the Oklahoma National Stockyards. Later, Miller was accused of taking the trip to see a doctor in Oklahoma City to receive a “Jesus shot”, consisting of Dexamethasone, Kenalog, and Vitamin B12, to treat Miller’s chronic pain. Miller decided to repay the cost of the trip. After an investigation, the Texas Department of Public Safety declined to pursue any charges against Miller.”

      Yep, he’s the one.

    Trump is such a trash magnet and he absolutely loves every piece he attracts.

  • Stogiebear

    “We’re really working hard on our farm-to-school program,” he told POLITICO Thursday, just before taking off for Florida, where he’s scheduled to meet with White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon to work on the Republican Party’s on-going whites-to-Washington program.

  • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

    Sorry, but you need millions, if not billions, to be in Trump’s cabinet.
