Joe Lieberman? Oh shit.

Trump interviews Joe Lieberman, three others for FBI director job.

A finger in the eye of Democrats and a deliberate spit in the face of Barack Obama, to even put forward the name of this man with absolutely no relevant experience.

Just like Donald Trump, himself.

A man who viciously betrayed Obama and the Democrats, supporting his buddy McCain - and Sarah Palin, endorsing birtherism, publicly urging claims Obama was a Marxist.

Senate Democrats reject Lieberman for FBI director

The first line of this report is silly.

President Donald Trump may be dramatically miscalculating how much support Sen. Joe Lieberman would have among his former Democratic colleagues if nominated to become FBI director.

Oh, no.

He knew exactly how welcome this nomination would be.

Though some are apparently clueless, I think both Republicans and Democrats get it.

Republicans are lining up behind Lieberman, who left the Senate in 2013 after four terms. 

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) called him a "person of unquestioned integrity and that's what we need." 

Added Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who has spoken to Lieberman about the job: "If the president picked Joe Lieberman he’d be doing [the] country a good service and, I think, the FBI a good service."

Graham is, of course, personally implicated in Lieberman's history of betrayal of the Democrats.

Collins is, well, Collins.
