    the clown car continues

    nytimes.com/interactive/2016/us/politic...

    We all watched the Republican clown car gain momentum during the primary season, and were dismayed when the largest clown of them all got the Republican nomination and (so far) has the most electoral votes. If the Justice department doesn’t do its job and investigate the Trump campaign, and if the 3 state recount doesn’t turn up enough votes to reverse the damage, Trump’s picks for his cabinet are nothing more than a continuation of the clown car.

    Chief White House strategist - Steve Bannon

    Like Donald Trump, he has had 3 wives. He is still the executive chair of Breitbart News, a far right news publication. As the White House strategist, his extreme views will lead to more bad ideas in the White House.

    Attorney General – Jeff Sessions

    He is ranked as the 5th most conservative U.S. Senator. He is opposed to gay marriage, the affordable care act, immigration reform, and he is a climate change denier. In 1986, he was denied a federal judgeship due to his racism, which is not surprising since he was born in Selma, Alabama in 1946. Feels that federal protection of disable children is why schools are failing.

    Transportation Secretary – Elaine Chao

    She is married to Mitch McConnell. Although she has had extensive political experience, including a stint as deputy secretary f transportation under George H.W.Bush, and is very wealthy due to her father’s shipping business. Although he lives in Taiwan, all of his ships are registered in Liberia. One of them was seized in Columbia with 40 kg of cocaine

    Education Secretary - Betsy DeVos

    Has never worked as a teacher, and does not have a degree in education. She is a big believer in using vouchers to transfer tax money from public schools to private schools, and is very wealthy due to her marriage to Amway heir Dick DeVos

    Treasury Secretary – Steven Mnuchin

    Trump promised to drain the swamp, but his pick here worked for Goldman Sachs for 17 years before starting his own hedge fund in 2004. A large chunk of his $40 million fortune came from questionable foreclosures

    Commerce secretary – Wilbur Ross

    Like Carl Icahn, he made a lot of money by buying and restructuring failing businesses. He is worth $2.9 billion

    Defense secretary – James “mad dog” Mattis

    In 2004, he ordered a 3 am raid on a suspected terrorist house, but instead hit a wedding party and killed 42 people. He was fired by Obama because he was too eager for a military confrontation with Iran.

    U.N. Ambassador – Nikki Haley – has absolute zero foreign experience, apart from the fact that she was born in India

    C.I.A. Director – Mike Pompeo – he lives in Kansas, and is a proud member of the Tea Party. He will be in charge of 21000 employees and a budget of $15 billion.

    National security Advisor – Michael Flynn

    Like trump, he has a strong fear of Muslims

    White House Chief of Staff – Reince Priebus

    At least he has had political experience. His biggest failure is preventing trump from getting the nomination.

    U.S. Trade representative – Dan DiMMicco is the former ceo of Nucor steel, the largest steel producer in the Uunited States. In 2000, it was fined $ 98 million by the EPA due to environmental violations.

    The positions below are still pending:

    VA secretary - Sara Palin

    Who the hell would put this woman in charge of anything? She was also considered for the department of the interior (drill, baby, drill)

    Homeland Security – David Clark Jr. or Joe Arpaio

    Sheriff Joe was a disaster for Maricopa taxpayers, and Milwaukee is the most segregated city in America. Either one of these two would be horrible.

    Secretary of State – Rudy Giuliani

    Seriously?

    Director of National Intelligence – Rudy Giuliani

    You’re kidding, right?

    Health and Human Services – Tom Price –

    Is totally opposed to the Affordable Care Act. He also has a 0% rating from Planned Parenthood, so women's health care would suffer under his reign.

    Housing and Urban Development – Ben Carson

    He was raised by a single mother in Detroit, but eventually did very well, thanks to government assistance. Today, he is worth between $6 and $20 million. He apparently is a good surgeon, but has virtually no management experience.

    CIA Director – Miek Pompeo –

    Was a harsh critic of Hillary Clinton during the witch hunt known as the Benghazi “investigation”.

    Agricultural Secretary – Sam Brownback

    After destroying the Kansas economy with his tax cuts, it’s hard to imagine that he would do anything to help farmers.

    EPA – Myron Ebell

    A prominent climate change skeptic. He would literally be like a fox in the hen house.

    Republicans deserve these people. The rest of the country as well as the world does not.

    If he typed his short reply it would be obvious what he was replying to since he was the first reply.

    Sheriff Joe has also been charged with criminal intent for disobeying a judge's order that banned him and his deputies from enforcing federal immigration laws. At the request of his attorneys, the trial has now been postponed until April 4th ...when Trump will be in office. Will he go to jail?

    Getting back to the subject; yes an good list; I suggest that if people have something to add, like Schmidt did, should give us an clear picture of what an Trump cabinet consists off. If this is what the "deplorables" like, then I hope they will go down with the Titanic; I'll hope I can grab an life vest in time and jump ship.

    I bet he won't, just like the police guy who shot an person in the back from an distance of 18ft. One juror did not want to convict him. Again I state if he had to shoot why kill him?; he could have shot him in the leg. Again the stupidity in training the military style trained police here. When are we going to learn anything in this country?

    The only choice to posting after the first message is to select "reply to message" . If there is a way to do that please share.

    Might have something to do with what you are using. I use my phone most of the time and there are a lot more feartures and options available on my desktop.
