I had heard the rumored possibility, but it just sounded too ridiculous to be serious. Perhaps that's the new normal, though. Trump is leaning toward John Bolton as Secretary of State.
That's right, one of the biggest jerks in GWB's administration, Bolton was the constantly sour-looking blowhard that notoriously verbally attacked and belittled his staffers and most anyone else around him. He was named our representative to the UN, which makes sense in Right-Wing Land, since Bolton had made a name for himself calling for the disbanding of the UN. By all reports he did little to strengthen America's ties around the world back then, and even worsened some. So naturally Trump wants to make him our Chief Diplomat.
John Bolton, a man so frightening that he scared his own mustache white.
Let the good times roll!
One problem Trump has is that he does not have a good selection of candidates for any position. His campaign was made up of 2nd and 3rd stringers in politics and his surrogates and staffers. He has to reward them and he has to select people his "team" will approve of. Very few good choices.
Besides what really qualified person would want to serve in an administration knowing that Trump is going to defer to certain people in all matters and those people will override the cabinet members and agency heads.
