A consultant known for urging cities to stop “enabling” homeless people, in part by blocking charities from handing out food, has been tapped to lead the agency that coordinates the federal government’s response to homelessness.

Robert Marbut, who has worked with several cities, including Fresno and several other California cities and counties, would succeed Matthew Doherty as executive director of the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness.

Doherty, an Obama administration appointee, was ousted by the Trump administration last month. On Wednesday, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced that Doherty will serve as a new advisor to California, helping the state create a federal advocacy agenda on homelessness.

The shift in leadership comes as President Trump has repeatedly vowed to crack down on street encampments in Los Angeles, San Francisco and elsewhere in California................

2. Sounds as smart as knowingly hiring a rapist to run a rape crisis center but

4. I wish I could say I'm surprised, but I'm not.

When weak, cowardly bullies want to feel strong, they prey on the most vulnerable of all. Will no one rid us of this troublesome President???

9. WTF? Does he think that the homeless choose to be that way because they

can get free food from charities? What an ignorant, heartless asshole! What is wrong with these people? They don't want to extend government benefits to assist these people and now they want to prevent charities from helping them as well? It really is all about the cruelty. It wouldn't surprise me if they just rounded them all up and executed them, considering the fact that they don't even consider them to be human.
