THE CULT OF PERSONALITY THEY'RE IN SEEMS WORSE:

Trump Cabinet pick paid by 'cult-like' Iranian exile group (John Gambrell, 2/05/17, AP) 

An official in U.S. President Donald Trump's Cabinet and at least one of his advisers gave paid speeches for an Iranian exile group that killed Americans before the 1979 Islamic Revolution, ran donation scams and saw its members set themselves on fire over the arrest of their leader.

Elaine Chao, confirmed this week as Trump's transportation secretary, received $50,000 in 2015 for a five-minute speech to the political wing of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq, previously called a "cult-like" terrorist group by the State Department. Former New York Mayor Rudy Guiliani also was paid an unknown sum to talk to the group, known as the MEK.

They're the neocons' favorite Marxists....but any port in an anti-Shi'a storm.
