WWE's McMahon In Line For Key Role In Trump Administration


This is not a joke. Repeat: not a joke.

Donald Trump is looking to announce Linda McMahon from the WWE as Secretary of Commerce in his new cabinet.

Souces close to both McMahon and the Trump camp have confirmed to NBC that a deal is being sought to take the matriarch of the family behind the WWE into Washington. 

Linda McMahon is a former head executive of the WWE and has also stood for the Senate twice, narrowly missing out both times, but this would be her most high profile and influential position to date.
