It would be news if any of his hires weren't racist.

Qualifications?
Racism, murder, arson and racism.
You said "racism" twice.

Garbage in, garbage out. The most corrupt administration in the history of the republic.

Does it matter if someone other than the OP summarizes the contents of a link? Oh well, Iíll give it a shot:

The newly appointed spokesman for the DHHS (who also worked on Trumpís campaign) had a string of racist tweets against Chinese people that he recently deleted. Here are some of his gems (some not concerning the sinophobia, but provide an interesting insight into his character nevertheless):

March 12: Caputo tweets in response to the baseless conspiracy that the US brought coronavirus to Wuhan that, "Sure, millions of Chinese suck the blood out of rabid bats as an appetizer and eat the ass out of anteaters but some foreigner snuck in a bottle of the good stuff. That's it." He follows up, "Don't you have a bat to eat?" He tweets at another user, "You're very convincing, Wang."

March 17: Caputo tweets, "#ChineseVirus" 20 times in a row. President Trump in March began calling the coronavirus the "Chinese virus."

March 17: Caputo tweets, "The Chinese Communist Party has always been adept at lying to cover their murders. What's remarkable here is the US Democrats and their conjugal media repeating CCP propaganda because they hate Trump more than they love America. The Wuhan virus has exposed them."

March 18: Caputo tweets, "Double down on #ChineseVirus. Leftists lost the true meaning of 'racism' long ago. And polls show they've beaten this dead horse so badly that GOP, independent, and soft Dem voters ignore them." He adds, "Nobody should let Democrats and their conjugal media popularize Chinese Communist Party talking points. Democrats + Media = CCP."


March 28: Caputo quote tweets MSNBC's Chris Hayes, who noted no other country on Earth was doing a worse job handling the crisis, with "Who knew @chrislhayes is Chinese?"

March 27: Caputo retweets a picture of a smiling George Soros with the caption, "The real virus!☠️☠️☠️ behind everything....."

March 8: Caputo tweets, "Coronavirus is the Democrats' new Russia, their new Ukraine. And nobody will believe them except their zombies. But know this: The Dems' strategy to defeat @realDonaldTrump requires 100s of thousands of American deaths. Will one of their nutjobs make it happen, a la Hodgkinson?"

March 23: Caputo tweets with a picture of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during the debate over the economic stimulus package, "The Democrats have one motivation for holding Americans hostage in a global crisis: HATE."

I didnít quote every offending tweet highlighted in the article, just the ones most relevant to the thread topic and well, as you can see, this dude is quite the charmer. Really the best people being hired over there. Iím not sure what further debate can be had on this man since bigoted, unqualified dimwits serving in Trumpís administration is hardly shocking anymore and itís not like heíll go away unless Trump wants him gone. Though to his (very limited) credit, when reached for comment he accepted that media coverage of his tweets was a natural consequence of putting his thoughts out there for all to read. Though he claims he regularly deletes his tweets because ďit drives people madĒ.
