maybe just go Back through THIS thread for starters..... :huh:

Still not answering my question.  Also, please use quote feature as I had to go back and scroll last page to find what you were referring to.

You are stating unequivocally that all Trump appointees are corrupt, criminals or losers.  Please list the corruption, crime or loser qualifier for each appointee.

Trump's Corrupt State Is So Much Worse Than His Imaginary Deep State |

".......Not since Warren G. Harding's sordid administration have as many grifters, crooks and cronies occupied high positions in Washington.

Trump has installed a Star Wars Cantina of former lobbyists and con artists, including several whose exploits have already forced them to resign, such as Scott Pruitt, Ryan Zinke, Tom Price, and Michael Flynn.

Many others remain.......

 

Despite evidence that Russia is back hacking and trolling its way toward the 2020 election, Republican defenders of Trump's Corrupt State won't lift a finger.

Mitch McConnell refuses to consider any legislation on election security...........

Trump and his Republican enablers are playing magicians who distract us by shouting "Look here!" at the paranoid fantasy of a Deep State, while creating a Corrupt State under our noses....

Exclusive: Leaked Trump vetting docs

Nearly 100 internal Trump transition vetting documents leaked to "Axios on HBO" identify

a host of "red flags" about officials who went on to get some of the most powerful jobs in the U.S. government. 

Why it matters: The massive trove, and the story behind it, sheds light on the slap-dash way President Trump filled his cabinet and administration, and foreshadowed future scandals that beset his government........

Sean Lawler, a State Department official chief of protocol, is departing amid a possible inspector general’s probe into accusations of intimidating staff and carrying a whip in the office

Lawler will be the 441st person to leave the administration

This guy must think he's Clyde Beatty at the circus or Zorro at the movies.

 At any rate, a man with a whip does not belong heading up the protocol at the State Department.

What was he going to do with that whip anyway?

Whip somebody when they didn't curtsy properly to the Queen of England?

EPA's air pollution chief steps down after ethics probe raises new questions

 

.... EPA air pollution chief Bill Wehrum’s ties to his old law firm and especially the Utility Air Regulatory Group, an influential collection of coal-heavy utilities that lobbied against climate regulations, drew scrutiny from House Democrats, who launched an investigation in April. POLITICO reported in February that 25 power companies and six industry trade groups agreed to pay the firm a total of $8.2 million in 2017, the same year President Donald Trump tapped Wehrum to join the EPA. .....

Wehrum has "accomplished a majority of his goals" at EPA but simply had enough of the flak.

“The rigmarole is just not fun for him,.....

 

Environmentalists quickly cheered Wehrum’s departure.

“Wehrum did more damage to the Clean Air Act than any other person in the last 40 years,” said Brett Hartl, government affairs director for the Center for Biological Diversity. “His legacy will be more premature deaths, more hospital visits and more asthma attacks to our most vulnerable citizens.”.......

Scott Gottlieb walks through the revolving door to the Pfizer board

"The revolving door turns again.

After a two-year stint running the Food and Drug Administration, Scott Gottlieb has joined the board of directors at Pfizer,

giving the world’s largest drug maker crucial insights into the inner workings of the Trump administration as it attempts to contain national angst over the rising cost of medicines.....

As someone who ran an agency that crafts policies and regulations that affect the fortunes of drug makers, a former FDA commissioner is a terrific catch.

And this is especially true, given the tumult facing the pharmaceutical industry over not just pricing, but also efforts to approve medicines faster and setting the standards for those approvals. ........

Don Trump Jr and Jared Kushner hate each other — and are fighting for control of 2020 re-election campaign: report

Now this doesn't surprise me about Jared Kushner.

His father went to federal prison because he tried to intimidate and threatened a witness in his trial, that witness was his sister.

He tried to intimidate his sister by luring in her husband with a prostitute.

There's no love lost between people in that family.

He had to.  He was getting more news coverage and face time on TV that Trump and that is a big no no, unless you are defending Trump.  That's how Conway gets to do it.

Guess now he will appoint an acting/interim and not have to worry about Senate confirmation hearings.

Trump's new acting Labor secretary pick feared by unions

" Patrick Pizzella, tapped by President Donald Trump on Friday to step in as acting Labor secretary, is a polarizing figure beloved by conservatives for his pro-business views

and disliked by unions and Democrats for a history of opposing worker protections. ....

He worked alongside disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff to shield the Northern Mariana Islands from federal labor laws in the 1990s,

and generally has favored easing workplace regulations.

“If the president is serious about helping working people, selecting Patrick Pizzella wouldn't be the way to demonstrate that,”.........

Trump is likely to nominate Eugene Scalia, son of Antonin, to be Labor Secretary, Politico reports.

Eugene Scalia argued in 2006 on behalf of Wal-Mart against a Maryland law that would

have required Wal-Mart to spend more health care money on employees.

=======================================

Elizabeth WarrenVerified account @ewarren 2h2 hours ago

 

Eugene Scalia spent his career putting giant corporations over American workers.

This should concern anyone who believes that the Department of Labor should protect workers’ rights—not corporate interests.

 

The Senate must reject his nomination for Secretary of Labor.

‘It’s a disaster over there’: Commerce reaches new heights of dysfunction

Under Secretary Wilbur Ross, the department is chaotic and adrift.

 

..... “With our ongoing trade wars and the census looming, Commerce needs functional leadership to be effective, and right now they just don’t have it,” ....

“He’s sort of seen as kind of irrelevant. The morale is very low there because there’s not a lot of confidence in the secretary,” said a former outside adviser to Commerce who is still in touch with many employees at the department. “He’s not respected ....

“Because he tends to fall asleep in meetings, they try not to put him in a position where that could happen so they’re very careful and conscious about how they schedule certain meetings,” said the former outside adviser. “There’s a small window where he’s able to focus and pay attention and not fall asleep.” .......

I think it may be due to the fact that Wilbur Ross is 176 years old, and/or he passed away several months ago. We may be looking at a Weekend at Bernie's situation. I'd say check his pulse, but I'm pretty sure there was never a heart there to begin with.
