  2. Keith Morrison:

    A million things have sprung from that, but Matthew Perry being selected for a role like that does not surprise me one bit. It matched Matthew Perry particular sense of humor precisely, whether they wrote that for Matthew Perry knowing what Matthew Perry was like or whether Matthew Perry adapted it more for himself, probably a combination of the two. But that character is Matthew. Yeah, and it always has been him. Hes just a talented soul, a smart guy, hes a good guy. We love having him around.

    The fact that Matthew Whitaker is a political operative isn't itself disqualifying, but I think where there are some concerns is the fact that Matthew Whitaker had been head of this very partisan organization for a number of years and that is what raises some alarm bells about Matthew Whitaker ability to impartially carry out the duties of attorney general of the United States.
