I’ve said that HRC’s biggest error in the campaign was focusing more on Trump’s wanting character and not as much on what it would mean to have a President Trump, ie. someone at odds with the entire establishment, a limited Rolodex of people who will take his calls, and the personality disorders of an autocrat.
We know his cabinet are a group of sycophants and billionaires that received the fewest approval votes from the Senate in our history. Including an energy secretary that didn’t know what the Energy dept. did. An education secretary that hates public schools. An EPA administrator that sued the EPA dozens of times. A national security adviser that had to be fired for undisclosed foreign ties. And that’s without naming Christie, Gingrich and Giuliani, the best known of his useless, unqualified supporters.
We know that hundreds of positions remain open 6 months into the non-administrating “administration.”
They’ve gone through their friends, and friends of friends and then friends of people they’ve humiliated over and over again (new FBI Director nominee and Christie lawyer Chris Wray)
But never let it be said that the Trump Employment Agency isn’t a miracle worker – if you don’t really need a job and have no real qualifications they’ll place you in a position of insane responsibility you have no right to hope for!
He just hired Eric’s wedding planner to administer billions of dollars in HUD money.
Now President Trump has appointed longtime loyalist Lynne Patton — who has zero housing experience and claims a law degree the school says she never earned — to run the office that oversees federal housing programs in New York…
“Responsible for organizing, executing and assisting with upscale events and celebrity golf tournaments,” her LinkedIn profile says. “Handle celebrity talent acquisition for various marketing projects, philanthropic events and golf tournaments.”
Okay, I was being flip and dismissive citing “wedding planner,” there’s also organizing golf tournaments! And so what if she has no clue what she’s doing, she can be guided by housing expert Ben Carson!
“[Trump personally], aggressively courted her for this,” one White House official told The Daily Beast. “It’s a done deal now… The president had floated several positions before—this is the one that stuck.”
A formal announcement of that new role is expected within a matter of weeks. Early last month, the Associated Press was the first to report that Cindy McCain was expected to be “offered a prominent role in the Trump administration’s State Department.”
I generally like the wives of senators who don’t interrupt Kamala Harris, I hate to tell you, but I’m sure Mrs. McCain is well qualified to give a cocktail party to spread awareness of human trafficking. She has a degree in canapés, i’m told.
McCain and Patton together could throw a mean golf cotillion I’m sure, that Ivanka could host. At taxpayer expense of course.
