Fire Jon Favreau
Jon Favreau has been tapped to be Barack Obama's White House director of speechwriting. A picture of Favreau appeared on Facebook. In the photo, he appears on the left groping the breast of the mock Hillary.
I somehow figured this was a Facebook picture when the photo appeared at Feministe. Jon Favreau is stupid enough to allow himself or one of his friends to post this image. Common sense informs a person not to put anything online that might jeopardize employment. Compound that with Favreau being the speechwriter for the President-elect. This is a needless headache for Obama.
Favreau will have to work for Clinton and possibly write her speeches. What kind of workplace dynamic will this create? How will segments of Obama’s base feel about the President-elect retaining Favreau’s services. There are more cons then pros for keeping Favreau.
A speechwriter can be replaced. Obama can hire a talented female speechwriter. That will send a pro-feminist message. Favreau is stupid enough to pose for this photo. He doesn't need to be rewarded for his behavior and given opportunities to further embarras the incoming administration
