Over the past week, liberals have been freaking out over the different members announced for President-elect Donald Trump’s administration. From Steve Bannnon to General Michael Flynn, the left has been in panic mode over what they consider inappropriate picks for the White House.
Well, one man whose name has just been floated as a possible pick for Department of Education is none other than Larry Arnn, president of the conservative Hillsdale College.
Hillsdale College, as most of you know, accepts no federal money, and therefore is the antithesis to everything liberals believe, so Arnn’s potential role in the Trump administration will likely drive the left mad.

From Washington Examiner:
“Names fly around at light speed. Mine is one of the minor names. This is not the first time this has happened to me,” Arnn wrote in an email to Hillsdale’s campus newspaper on Thursday.
“Some people of influence would like for me to do it,” Arnn said of filling the education secretary post, noting that he has not formally been asked by the president-elect’s team if he is interested in the Cabinet-level position. “If those people decide to ask me, then I will make a decision. I will make no decision that I think would harm the college or result in my permanent separation from it.”
On his radio show, conservative icon Rush Limbaugh cheered the idea of Arnn heading up the Department of Education:
“Can you imagine if Larry Arnn ended up as education secretary?” Limbaugh told his listeners. “You put him in there at education and Cruz or Jeff Sessions as attorney general — look, I’m here to tell you that the names I have seen floated are more solid and better in terms of conservatism than your average Republican nominee would put together.”
Early in the campaign, Trump promised to shut down the Department of Education, and said he would return its budget to the states. Given that Arnn’s Hillsdale College doesn’t take federal money, he might be the perfect man to help wind down the outdated, useless federal department.
