When he was president, Donald Trump placed a number of incompetent people in roles they weren’t prepared for. And many of those people did significant damage. But Louis DeJoy may have been the most incompetent person to work in the Trump administration.
The 45th president made DeJoy the Postmaster General. And DeJoy immediately went to work hurting the organization and creating extreme mail delays. Joe Biden would like to fire the Postmaster General, but there are quirks that make that difficult. Despite this, when he was asked to give himself a letter grade for his performance, DeJoy awarded himself an A.
The comments were made during an interview with C-SPAN. The interviewer asked, “Would you say you’ve done a satisfactory job? What grade would you award yourself?”
DeJoy answered, “I would give myself an A for bringing strategy and planning and effort to here. And as I did in my last testimony to congress as a leader or the organization, I take responsibility for how we have delivered this season and I apologized to the American public.”
