(ThePatriotSource.com)- On the same day that President Donald Trump announced that he had contracted the deadly Chinese coronavirus, he also announced that he was making two new appointments to his administration. Political commentator and author Larry Elder along with the President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fittin, will be joining his administration.
Elder will be appointed as a Member of the Commission on the Social Status of Black Men and Boys, while Fitton will become a Member of the District of Columbia Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure.
The move is big news as both figures are well-known in conservative and Republican activist circles. Fitton has made a name for himself as the leader of Judicial Watch by bringing many lawsuits against various state governments and even former President Barack Obama. Fitton also filed a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton during her failed 2016 campaign.
Fitton has long said that Hillary Clinton was behind the Russia hoax, and had the help of former President Barack Obama.
Hillary Clinton was behind it. And she had Obama’s help…. https://t.co/04EaLlLaKs

Elder’s appointment also goes against the narrative pushed by the Democrats, Black Lives Matter, and Antifa, that the Republicans don’t believe that the lives of Black Americans matter. Elder has long discussed the racism of the left, including mainstream Democratic politicians, and recently published a film called “Uncle Tom.”
The movie asks why Black conservatives are called “Uncle Tom,” a racial slur, so often by left-wing activists. His appointment to the federal government will allow him to work on a commission set up in August 2020 that will examine the social disparities that disproportionately affect Black males in America. The commission is led by Republican Senator Marco Rubio.
The new commission establishes a new bipartisan effort within the United States Commission on Civil Rights and it will have 19 members, including lawmakers and experts like Elder.
The commission will issue policy recommendations to lawmakers based on its findings, so Elder’s influence may just ensure that fake narratives pushed by Black Lives Matter and similar groups do not find their way into those recommendations
