Art of the Deal: Nikki gets Lindsey's Senate seat so Lindsey gets cabinet post?

Nikki Haley (R-SC)

Cut a deal? Graham is unre-electable in SC for Senate and desperate for a cabinet post. Will Haley get his Senate seat?

It's not hard to connect the dots. In a perfectly obvious Art of the Deal ol' switcheroo, Trump can help out his little sycophant pal, Lindsey Graham (R-SC) by getting him a cabinet post and helping to ensure former South Carolina Republican Governor Nikki Haley gets Graham's Senate seat now that Haley is quitting her job as Ambassador to the United Nations, to, as Trump put it, "take some time off."

If Trump names Graham to his cabinet -- something that it is clear Graham desperately wants as is evidenced by his disturbing, unhinged, Giuliani-esque Trump rear-end kissing -- the current South Carolina Governor, Republican Henry McMasters names his replacement, since Graham's Senate seat is not up for election until 2020.

McMasters would appoint Nikki Haley to Lindsay Graham's vacant seat, once Trump places Graham on his Cabinet.
