Trump Crippling Government with Carson and Other Unqualified Cabinet Choices

President-Elect Donald Trump is surrounding himself with nonsensical Cabinet picks. For Secretary of Education, he picks a billionaire who has never studied or worked in public schools and who wants to destroy public education. For ambassador to the United Nations, he picks a young governor with no foreign policy experience.

President Trump and HUD Secretary Carson? Wake me up when it's over....
President Trump and HUD Secretary Carson? Wake me up when it’s over….

And now for Housing and Urban Development, he picks neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who has no government or executive experience and a temper that even Trump found objectionable just last year.

Housing and Urban Development isn’t brain surgery… and that’s the point. Trump is picking the wrong people for the job… much as the Electoral College is about to pick the wrong person for the Presidency.

    All of these picks are baffling beyond belief. DeVos scares the living crap out of me. My dog has more experience, respect, and common sense about public education than she does. Carson? The guy who self-admitted that he shouldn’t be running anything? Gawd, this is so very scary.

    It seems the criteria Trump is using to select high-level officials is that they have to either have no relevant experience, or they have to be out of the mainstream. Hopefully there are a few Republicans in the senate who will say no to Trump. I think there may be.

    Drumpf’s pick for National Security(Flynn) spread lies about HRC running a child prostitution ring out of a pizza joint. Yesterday some nut went to that establishment with a loaded gun(S) because of the lies and now police have found Flynn’s son Mike jr is spreading more lies about that story. They seemed nice, not!

    After promising to drain the swamp, Trump is either choosing one of three types of people generally to fill his administration:

    1) the same old Wall Street insiders
    2) appointees with no executive experience
    3) appointees pledged to undo the work of the department they are to head

    It is hard to imagine government working better with this group assembled by Trump leading it.

    I heard an interview the other day in which a commentator said that James “Mad Dog” Mattis, as the nominee for SECDEF would be a moderating influence on Trump. It is not exactly an ideal situation when a guy named Mad Dog has to be a moderating influence on the President elect.

    This is not going to end well.

    Will photo op be picked for a cabinet job

    The best is yet to come. He is apparently considering Sarah Palin for a cabinet position. You can’t make this stuff up folks.

    So Trump supporters…. when he hires Washington insiders, the same old names we have heard year after year, and people who have worked for the big Wall Street firms – can you start to realize that whole “drain the swamp” thing you were told was just another big lie? Trump is concerned with one thing and one thing only. Finding new and more creative ways to build his empire and enrich his family. Period.

    When you vote for inexperience, you get inexperience. It already shows, and other world leaders are going to be walking all over this guy for the next four years. Let’s just hope we can make it to 2020 without starting WWIII.

    We will prolly have a racist AG. That oughta work good in a nation where the party in charge stirs up race relations for the hell of it, especially for minor stuff like voting rights and not letting Blacks walk down the street unmolested.

    Moses, “Photo Op” already has a job, standing behind the Republican leadership at news conferences and looking TALL! Notice, he never gets to speak even tho they advertise him as #3 leader in the Senate?

    Drumpf has another choice to consider for his cabinet. Wingnut North Carolina guv finally conceded and now need a job where he can legally harass gays and minorities.

  10. Roger Cornelius 2016-12-05 13:32

    Not only will Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions stir the racial pot, he will be going after the states that have legalized pot.

    What are you wearing, USA? Don Trump is treating America like one of his prostitutes. He’s doing things that he knows are wrong, just because he’s powerful and believes he can get away with it. No means no, Donald!

    The NSA nominee, General Flynn, traffics in conspiracy theories and his chief of staff son, continues to tweet fake news about a Clinton campaign pedophilia ring. Our National Security Advisor to be thinks Hillary Clinton’s campaign ran a child sex ring out of a pizza parlor!

    “Six days before the election, Mr. Flynn, the former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, tweeted a fake news story that claimed the police and prosecutors in New York had found evidence linking Mrs. Clinton and much of her senior campaign staff to pedophilia, money laundering, perjury and other felonies. “U decide,” Mr. Flynn wrote in the Twitter message on Nov. 2, though it appeared there was little doubt what he thought.
    Mr. Flynn’s month-old tweet is attracting renewed attention after a man fired a rifle on Sunday inside a Washington pizza restaurant that was the subject of false stories during the campaign tying it and the Clinton campaign to a child sex trafficking ring.
    The man, Edgar M. Welch, 28, of Salisbury, N.C., told the police that he had come to the restaurant, Comet Ping Pong, in northwest Washington, to “self-investigate” the sex trafficking hoax, which is being called Pizzagate. No one was hurt, and Mr. Welch was arrested at the scene.

    Gee, so happy that the Electorate College voted this moron in, not to mention all of our Reps for South Dakota approve of this Moron. Enjoy the chaos he will create with his idea of cabinet picks. You think SD has problems now with getting teachers, wait until DeVos starts messing with the Education program. The Republicans of Texas are already having fun getting rid of extra help for disabled children that require different types of therapy. When will SD follow their lead?

    Trump isn’t draining the swamp, he is bringing in more old alligators and crocodiles, poisonous snakes, partisan vermin, and tossing in a few new mutations of the scummy partisan wildlife.

    According to a Trump spokesperson, Carson is perfect to lead HUD because “he did spend part of his childhood in public housing . . . .”
    So get ready for our next surgeon general: someone who has been to the doctor. —-Stephen Colbert

    Republican Presidents have now devolved from appointing barely qualified idiologues to appointing completely unqualified ideologues.

    What more proof do we all need in order to viably conclude that they are either stupid and/or hate America.

    Trump is going to start a war – he can’t help himself. What kind of made for TV Presidency could be complete with out the storyline of a war? What? You think he’ll be some kind of great messenger of peace? LOL !!!
