GIZMODO SMEARS TRUMP WITH FAKE NEWS, AND LIBERAL HACKS RUN WITH IT

According to an official within the Department of Energy, the Trump transition team has declined to ask the head of the National Nuclear Security Administration and his deputy to temporarily stay in their roles after Trump takes office on January 20th …
