University system budget slasher gets prestigious Trump scholarly position

Trump always manages to find the worst appointee:
Trump appoints disgraced ex-GOP Gov Scott Walker to oversee scholars at the Smithsonian Institution
Read more, and weep:
Scott Walker, of Wisconsin, gets a presidential appointment

On the other hand, someone has to fund the climate change deniers. 

Here's a list with links and documentation of at least 33 times Walker and his appointees dissed or dismissed science during his eight-reign of ignorance.

Update: The more I read about the Wilson/World Affairs arm of the Smithsonian to which Walker will share his expertise and advance its scholarship, the more I am remembering this:
Walker, in London, declines to talk about world affairs, evolution
And remember how Walker's peculiar brand of scholarship included deleting the true, public service  mission of UW scholarship, then lying about having put the deletion into hs budget.

You know what they say it's not what you know but who you know which is very sad for this country. It puts some very unsavory characters into positions they shouldn't be. I was so saddened when I saw this. When does this end?

January, 2021. Impeachment will give us Pence, who is as bad or worse.
