Republican Governor of Wisconsin Scott Walker approval rating is one of the worst in the country and it doesn't look like he can count on recommendations from his former cabinet secretaries either.

The governor's Former secretary of the Department of Commerce Paul Jadin signed onto a scathing letter decrying Governor Walker for his fixation on self-advancement, his eagerness to bend the truth or outright lie, as well as blaming him for Wisconsin's crumbling infrastructure.

To make matters worse, the letter is signed by two other former secretaries in Walker's cabinet - Corrections Secretary Ed Wall and former Financial Institutions Secretary Peter Bildsten - all endorsing Walker's Democratic opponent, Democrat Tony Evers.

The letter pulls no punches, saying:

"Internally, Governor Walker has consistently eschewed sound management practices in favor of

schemes or coverup and has routinely put his future ahead of the state. The result is

micromanagement, manipulation and mischief. We have all been witness to more than our share of this. It's time to build a more open and transparent government to ensure the integrity of our public agencies and institutions."

Then, adding insult to injuries, Walker's former employees endorsed his opponent:

We have served our state and local governments in many capacities over our careers and have

voted for and supported Republicans. Therefore, we come to this next statement only after a

great deal of reflection and discernment. On November 6, 2018 please vote with us for Tony


Another of Walker's employees - former Secretary of Transportation Mark Gottlieb - has also come out against the governor for lying about road funding, however he did not sign the letter nor has he endorsed Walker's opponent Tony Evers.

Many on Twitter weren't exactly surprised that even Walker's former employees were dismayed by his tenure as governor.

They hadn't forgotten about the secretaries who penned the letter either.

The former Walker staffers were widely commended across Twitter for their willingness to voice their true feelings about their one time boss.

Despite Walker being a two-term incumbent, the race is growing exceedingly tight, with Real Clear Politics showing Tony Evers at an average of three points ahead.

Though the polls are still well within the margin of error, the tide appears to be turning against Walker, with four of his former allies leading the charge.

In December, President Donald Trump established the United States Space Force, a sixth branch of the United States Army.

The goal of the force is to protect United States assets in outer space from foreign rivals and is slated to cost around $2 billion in the next five years.

Today, Trump unveiled the official logo for the Space Force, but people think it bears a striking resemblance to another iconic symbol.

People were stunned this past July when President Donald Trump tweeted that four Congresswomen of color—Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA)—should "go back" to where they came from.

He also falsely claimed they "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe..."

Three of the Congresswomen were born in the United States. Omar was a refugee from Somalia. All are Americans.

At a campaign rally days later in North Carolina, President Donald Trump mentioned Congresswoman Omar—and got a strong reaction from the crowd.

While bigotry is common at a Trump rally, it became even more blatant when Trump's supporters began chanting "Send her back," echoing the calls from Trump's tweet for them to "go back" to where they came from.

The administration of President Donald Trump relies on its white Evangelical base to keep its support consistently hovering around 40 percent.

In keeping with this, President Donald Trump often invokes anti-abortion values he claims to hold dear. He's falsely claimed that Democrats are determined to rip babies from their mothers' wombs and that parents often discuss with their doctors whether or not to keep the baby...after the baby is born.

These claims are patently false, but they rile up the base.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos seems to be playing right along in promoting abortion hysteria, if a recent speech is any indication.

After hours of evidence presented by the House Impeachment managers in the Senate trial against President Donald Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) strayed even further into the abyss of fanaticism as he defended the President to reporters.

Graham, a Trump critic turned ally, didn't attempt to refute any of the myriad evidence laid out by Democrats, but instead dismissed the claims that Trump did anything wrong when he withheld congressionally approved aid from Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into his political rival.
