Opinion: Michael Caputo fits very well in the Trump administration

September 16, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

Michael D'Antonio writes that the recent conspiracy theories and threat of a looming armed conflict if Joe Biden doesn't concede to Donald Trump, made by the top spokesman for the HHS, suggests that he's doing just what his boss wants.

(CNN)The current craziest thing from Trumpworld involves Michael Caputo, who was installed in a key government job as the top spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services, where a federal health official said Caputo is pressuring scientists to change their reports on the coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement to CNN, Caputo said that he made the comments in the video while dealing with pressures stemming from he and his family being harassed recently.

Meanwhile, at the Department of Health and Human Services, Caputo is doing his part to politically benefit the President.

Although he may now be trying to blame his bizarre conspiracy comments on recent pressures, Caputo is no stranger to Trump-style antics.

Caputo's coronavirus comment seems especially ill conceived and would, with another president, have made him ineligible for a post at HHS, but it marks him as a person perfectly suited for the Trump administration.

As Caputo and the others show their willingness to play the game like Trump, they bring to mind Trump's former lawyer and business affairs "fixer," Michael Cohen, who went to prison for lying to federal officials investigating his former boss.
