On Wednesday, President-Elect Donald Trump chose former Georgia governor Sonny Perdue as his agriculture secretary. Perdue served two terms after becoming Georgia’s first Republican governor in well over a century, slashing the state’s budget and pursuing trade on behalf of the state. So, how did The Washington Post headline the appointment? “Trump picks former Georgia governor Sonny Perdue, who once led a prayer for rain, for agriculture secretary.”
Yes, that was their actual headline.
