Peter Thiel’s former chief of staff, Michael Kratsios, to join Trump as Deputy CTO.
I was not aware that the US Government had a CTO. In fact, I am not sure what a CTO is, or what one does. But the fact that this one is a former chief of staff of Peter Thiel, well, that brings pause. In fact, I don't believe it. So we look for verification!
OK, Techcrunch says yes.
. Also along for the ride: Michael Kratsios, Thiel’s chief of staff, and Charlie Kirk, a 23-year-old wunderkind who blew off college to start a grass-roots organization dedicated to training young conservatives in the art of persuasion — and plugging them into the right networks.
Well, I guess at least one gets plugged, according to Politico [politico.com].
And, according to "The Street", it is reported in Politico. https://www.thestreet.com/story/14026458/1/trump-taps-kratsios-as-the-white-house-chief-technology-officer.html [thestreet.com] I love how the news we aggregate is so self-referential and recursive, it is almost like an actual unix file directory.
Yes, editors, this is one more in a serious of obsessive submissions on the vampire domain of Peter Thiel. Reject it at your peril!
