Trump's leadership team

Are you as sure about this as you were that Hillary was going to have it wrapped up early?

 

Fair enough. She's a nut. Just like Trump. She would make a terrible press secretary, but now I genuinely hope he appoints her just so you can see more of her than just a youtube video.

 

Oh, and my mother died of cancer when she was in her forties, leaving six children behind, ages 5-18. So y'know...Tom ain't my phucking mother, you idiot.

Fair enough. He just acts like it I guess.

 

Sorry to hear about your mother.

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has told President-elect Donald Trump that he isn’t interested in serving as secretary of Health and Human Services, a Carson ally confirmed to The Hill on Tuesday…

 

 

 

Newt Gingrich also seems likely to pass on a cabinet position, although not for the same reasons as Carson. Imagine Newt declaring himself unfit to run anything. He told Megyn Kellylast night that he wants to be for Trump what Harry Hopkins was for FDR, a sort of technocrat-in-chief: “I want to be the general planner, looking out over the next eight years and trying to design how we fundamentally reshape the federal government.”

 

 

A name being mentioned for Secretary of Education in lieu of Carson is Michelle Rhee, who went to war with the teachers’ union in Washington D.C. when she was chancellor of public schools there in the last decade. She fired bad teachers and proposed financial incentives for good performance in exchange for an end to tenure — exactly the sort of reforms conservatives have championed for decades to reduce union influence over public education.

Steve Bannon Is Not a Nazi—But Let’s Be Honest about What He Represents
by Ian Tuttle

Alan Dershowitz Defends Steve Bannon: ‘Not Legitimate To Call Somebody An Anti-Semite Because You Disagree With Their Policies’

by Aaron Klein

 

Original Article

 

 

The media continues to try and focus on Steve Bannon, it will be interesting to see if Trump caves on this.

 

Funny that they spent the last 15 months trying to convince us that Donald Trump was Hitler........failing that they will try again with Bannon

 

There is certainly no argument that he is pretty far right on the scale, but any honest person would see that is no more than Obama's primary advisor (Valerie Jarret) is to the far left.

and she pretty much ran the country the past eight years.

 

Evidence shows that Trump makes decisions on what HE wants to do, the country survived Rove and Jarrett, we'll survive Bannon too

Steve Bannon Is Not a Nazi—But Let’s Be Honest about What He Represents
by Ian Tuttle

 

 

There are many denials that Bannon is an anti-semite from Orthodox Jews who directly worked with him for several years. They say he's a horrible human being, but not an anti-semite.

That's what I gathered, researching him.

 

The sad thing was how many articles about him I had to go through before I found one that wasn't reflexively labeling him a Nazi.

Hard to believe that Trump would have an anti-semite as an inner circle advisor when his daughter is an Orthodox Jew. People have lost their fargin' minds.


Bannon always looks like he he needs a shower, a shave, and some skin ointment. Dude looks really rough-around-the-edges. Maybe Donald will comp him a few tickets to a Spa there in Trump Tower.

Ben Shapiro has nothing nice to say about the guy. He actually said that he's one of the very worst human beings that he's ever met. But he was absolutely emphatic that he was not a bigot or anti-semitic.

Because only an anti-semite would replace an Orthodox Jew editor at large with a more Orthodox Jew editor at large.

Does anyone remember this much scrutiny and coverage of a new prez picking his staff? Bush II maybe, but I don't remember others being like this.

Disarray

 

Let me get this right: every time a media outlet makes an incorrect 'according to sources' story, this translates to incompetency on behalf of Trump?

Fox News this morning had a graphic about all the Presidents back to Nixon showing how long it took for them to get their cabinet level appointments done.

Nixon did them all during week 6. No one finished them all any sooner, though there were many that had a few trickle in beginning in about week 3-4. I think I saw B.O. did one or two in the first two weeks.

 

The MSM is in a frenzy and have lost their minds.

Yet when Obama offered State to Hillary, it was seen as a brilliant move to sideline a potential rival for a possible primary battle.

He won't. Good PR move but unnecessary. He's president now.

Jeff Sessions for Attorney General
Several outlets are reporting that Sen. Jeff Sessions has been offered the post of Attorney General. I’d have preferred the he stay in the Senate, where we’re going to need a knowledgeable, experienced hand to prevent any immigration bill(s) from drifting either left or toward Chamber-of-Commerce-ism, especially given that the cunning Chuck Schumer, architect of the Gang of Eight, will be minority leader. Cotton and Perdue are said to be ready to step up, and Cotton recently made clear he wants to reduce legal immigration, not just enforce existing law. I’m hopeful they can take over the tiller.
That said, there’s no one in the country better qualified to be Attorney General than Jeff Sessions. His probity and rectitude are beyond question. Reverence for the laws is his political religion, and the contrast between him and the blandly sinister Loretta Lynch couldn’t be starker. And for those skeptical of the president-elect, Sessions has both the integrity and the relationship with Trump to be able to say “no” if the president was ever to attempt anything beyond the pale legally.
In 1986, Sessions was Borked avant la lettre, with Ted Kennedy railing against his nomination for a federal judgeship with his usual grandiose lies about “a throwback to a shameful era.” The charges that Sessions was a racist were contemptible 30 years ago; the Democrats in the Senate and their media organs will only discredit themselves further by trying to recycle them now.
But recycle them they will. Thankfully, there may be only three or four people left who believe anything coming from the mainstream media.

This is a totally idiotic position.

I wouldn't be surprised if Trump is dangling some of these cabinet posts to his critics, like Haley and Romney, just so he can get them to come to NY to kiss his ring. See Omarosa'a prediction

My idea was to have Apprentice: Cabinet. I'm not sure which network would have picked it up, though.
