Give Nixon a break - - don't you remember those long cozy walks on the beach he used to take with his close friend, Bebe Rebozo?

...wearing his blue suit and a tie.

He's the first President since Nixon who basically does no exercise.

Though Nixon was a lot slimmer. Must have

been those cottage cheese and ketchup lunches. 


Curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid get.

Doubtful.

Required Qualifications and Experience: Being Daddy's Girl

For Trump to even consider doing this is an insult to the American people, even the ones who voted for him.

It is nepotism, pure and simple.  If you have an office or work area in a government building, you are "employed."  

She continues to run her "companies" and to market them while working in a federal office building.

Why should she even be considered for a security clearance if she has no official position with the government.  That's like saying the spouses and children of everyone in the military with a clearance should also have them.

Will she sit in on security briefings?

Apparently Trump or Bannon or someone is making sure that the cabinet appointees toe their party line.  While most positions go vacant, the political watch dogs are there in force.  Must be something they learned from Putin or some other dictator.

I was thinking along those same lines.  Trump doesn't seem to be thinking in terms of job performance and acumen for the position as he is about "fixing" things for HIS own advantage.

 

And firing a guy he told was going to be kept?  And HE'S not the LIAR?  C'MON now........

With no replacements in hand, lying Jeff Sessions has fired 40+ lawyers.  So what about the cases they are prosecuting at the moment, like those against Wall Street?  Maybe that was the point.  More protection and money for billionaires and less protection for the average (Trump) voter.  And the Trumpsters still won't wake up.

Former Koch Agents, Fossil Fuel Industry Hired Guns Now Staffing Trump's Federal Agencies-

 

"the names of hundreds of temporary staffers the Trump administration has installed in federal agencies, including the Department of Interior (DOI), Department of Energy (DOE), the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and others. 

 

A DeSmog investigation shows that this list of staffers, largely undisclosed before this week, includes former operatives allied with Koch Industries, oil and coal industry employees, a former employee of a prominent climate denial group, and an advocate for a pro-trophy hunting organization funded by oil and gas. The background and connections of these staffers may serve as a preview to potential priorities these agencies may take on related to energy, climate, and environment under Donald Trump....

 

“Trump installing corporate polluter operatives into key energy and climate positions is just another distressing example of just how radically he is hijacking our country in the wrong direction,” Tyson Slocum, Energy Program Director for Public Citizen,...

BS on Pence claim he never knew about Flynn’s Turkish contract-

 

"Pence sought to say that it was the first time he’d heard about it.

 

 

“That cannot be true,” Maddow said bluntly. “It is impossible this is the first Mike Pence has heard of it. Mike Pence was the head of the [Trump] transition, while all of those news stories of Mike Flynn being on the Turkish government’s payroll were breaking.

He was the head of the transition when Mike Flynn was being vetted for the National Security Advisor job. He was the head of the transition when Congress formally notified the head of the transition that Mike Flynn appears to be on a foreign government’s payroll.

 

He was the head of the transition when Mike Flynn’s personal lawyers came and told the transition that Mike Flynn maybe needed to register as a foreign agent.”

 

http://www.rawstory....rkish-contract/

 

"In November, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D., Md.), sent a letter to Mr. Pence, raising the issue of Mr. Flynn’s work related to Turkey............
