President Trump has wasted no time responding to Vladimir Putin’s appointment of Steven Seagal, who is a Russian citizen, as Special Envoy to handle US-Russia relations.
“It is my pleasure to announce that I am countering this provocative act by bringing Gary Busey into my Cabinet.”
Trump thanked incumbant Mike Pompeo for his service over the past few months, but said that the appointment by Putin of Seagal meant a different approach was needed at the State Department.
Secretary Busey promised to bring something special to the world of international diplomacy.
“They won’t even see ol’ Busey coming. It’s going to be a wild wild ride.”
Critics pointed out that Busey failed to come out on top in his last confrontation with Seagal, and wasn’t even the most senior official, instead serving under Tommy Lee Jones.
But Busey says he has done more than enough since then to prove he is up to the task.
“I believe I have demonstrated I am plenty fit to serve in this administration.”
