The Trump Administration Hires Big Boobs.

by Pitt Griffin on September 21, 2017 · 0 comments

in Politics, Trump presidency

In the Mad Man era — as the joke has it — the executive needed a new secretary. He interviewed the candidates. After asking them wide-ranging questions about their abilities, education, and experience, he hired the one with the biggest boobs.

And so it is in the Trump administration. Ability, education and experience count for little. Loyalty is the big boobs — although I’m sure they help as well.

Irony is Trump answering his own question.

Politico looked at the résumés of 42 political appointees to the USDA and found 22 listed Trump campaign experience. By itself that is hardly a disqualifier. But these appointees seemingly lack any relevant education or experience for their new positions.

Let’s consider Nick Brusky. This truck driver now works at the USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service — in a position that typically requires a master’s degree. Brusky did attend three colleges, but there is no evidence he graduated. However, he was a field representative for Trump’s campaign in Ohio. For this the taxpayers pay him $79,720 annually.

Of course, it doesn’t get any better higher up. Science positions are typically filled with apparatchiks, ignorant of science – but checking all the right political boxes. The Cabinet is no better. A pediatric neurosurgeon is in charge of housing. And the Energy secretary had no idea that his purview included America’s nuclear power

Salting the stew are the appointees hostile to the mission of their departments. An Education Secretary who despises public education. And an EPA administrator who thinks pollution is an ignorable cost of burning fossil fuels.

And the cherry atop this fetid cake is a President who has no knowledge, nor any desire to acquire any.

Really? 4.12.17 Trump, Carson, & DeVos Do What’s in Their Nature.

April 12, 2017

Appetizer. Ben Carson was concluding a visit to Miami’s Courtside Family Apartments when he got stuck in an elevator for 20 minutes. Let the headlines write themselves. Trump’s core principle is to have no core principles. Donald Trump is ‘unpredictable’ in his own words. He says that it is an advantage in negotiations. Others say that it […]

Who Will Run Against Hillary In 2020?

October 20, 2016

In 2015, the Republicans were ecstatic about their slate of candidates. The Democrats, not so much. The Republicans were a diverse, vibrant group of up and comers, experienced politicians, business people, and a renowned surgeon. The Democrats were a widely disliked woman, a curmudgeon who wasn’t even a Democrat, an ex-governor nobody knew, another ex-Governor who had […]

Really? 8.18.16 Trump’s Fake Health Letter; Dickless in Plaster; Pat Robertson Drools.

August 18, 2016

Donald Trump is having problems. But not to worry he has a strategy. The most dishonest politician in living memory has impugned “crooked Hillary’s” own veracity – repeatedly. Unfortunately for him, the Republicans have been throwing so much dirt at her – for so long – more mud is not noticeable. The American voter has already […]

Conservatives Revealed in All Their Insanity.

April 26, 2016

“Conservatives are not necessarily stupid, but most stupid people are conservatives” – John Stuart Mill Muslim bans, bathroom rules, dick size, glowing sand, women bleeding – has the GOP lost its mind? The Republican presidential candidate in all likelihood will be a large orange hairball who believes that he can solve America’s problems by negotiating better. Or […]

Really? 3.15.16 Trump and Carson, Loyalty, Rubio, and Overcooked Meat.

March 15, 2016

“After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one’s own relations.” ― Oscar Wilde Ben Carson endorsed Donald Trump. He had two reasons. He didn’t see a path to the presidency for any other candidate. And Trump promised him a role in his administration. Trump may not be thrilled with Carson’s support. Especially when […]
