Puzder's nomination could be in jeopardy:

Puzder’s Nomination In Jeopardy

February 13, 2017By Taegan Goddard
Four Republican senators have told their leadership they are withholding support for Andrew Puzder, President Trump’s choice for labor secretary, “setting off an intense effort by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and business groups to bring at least two back into the fold so that the nomination does not fail,” CNN reports.

The four, sources say, are Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Tim Scott (R-SC) and Johnny Isakson (R-GA).

1. More rigged than a pro wrestling feud

I'll believe Puzder's nomination is in trouble when he's voted down. Republicans in Congress know that President Trump can't sustain any more public losses; the executive order fiasco hurt him badly, and losing a cabinet nominee right now would be brutal. Trump must not look like a loser.

2. I wonder what made Johnny I. grow a conscience?

He comes around, like, once every 15 years.
