DATELINE: Whimsy & Humor
With the big news out of Washington that President Trump has fired FBI Director James Comey, the speculation has run rampant down to Foxboro about the next man Trump may select for a grueling Senate confirmation hearing.
And, the word around is that President Trump’s good friend, Bill Belichick, might be the grandest choice to head the crime fighting agency.
Trump appears ready to buck the past precedent to hire a man who relaxes in his mother’s old dresses.
Belichick shares a disdain for talking to the media that Trump admires—and no one knows better how to deal with fake news than the head coach of the Patriots.
Of course, first choice Tom Brady wants to keep his job with the Patriots. The FBI director receives a contract to play for ten years—and Tom expects to be around Gillette Stadium for at least a dozen more seasons.
Considering the problems of a Watergate type trouble that Trump may find himself, it would surely be good to find someone familiar with Spygate, Bountygate, and Deflategate, to head the FBI job.
That leads us to the unfortunate conclusion that the best man for the job could be Roger Goodell. We don’t know if he wears dresses in his spare time, but we won’t bet against it.
Trump should nominate Goodell for the post. He can keep Belichick on ice until the head of the CIA job opens up.
