President Trump will appoint Andrew Giuliani to the United States Holocaust Memorial Council, the White House announced Wednesday, saying the position is a “Key Administration Post.” Giuliani, the son of former New York mayor and current Trump campaign lawyer Rudy Giuliani, said on Twitter that he was humbled by the appointment.

Giuliani, will serve a five-year-term on the 55-person board, which meets twice a year. His qualifications include…uh…that time he sued Duke University for cutting him from the golf team? The time he lost his West Wing pass? The time he made out furiously with his wife at the Harman Center?

Whatever brought him to this position, Washingtonians can be relieved that we’ll have a Giuliani in town at least until 2025.
