From The Chicago Tribune:

A 24-year-old former Trump campaign worker who rose rapidly to a senior post in the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy will step down by the end of the month because of controversy surrounding his appointment, the White House said late Wednesday.

Taylor Weyeneth, who graduated from college in May 2016, was named a White House liaison to the drug office in March and then promoted to deputy chief of staff in July, at age 23. His only professional experience after college and before becoming a political appointee was working on the Trump presidential campaign.

And here’s the controversy:

Early last year, Weyeneth revised dates relating to certain jobs he held, including one at a New York law firm. A partner at the firm told The Post that Weyeneth was “discharged” because he stopped showing up for work.

On all three résumés, Weyeneth maintained that he had a master’s degree from Fordham University, although a university spokesman said Weyeneth had not completed his coursework.…

Surprise, surprise — the recent college grad who snagged a senior post in the Drumpf administration turns out to be a big, fat, liar.

Trump has the best people.
