Did you see Betsy DeVos on 60 Minutes? She and Ben Carson are in a serious race for the bottom in terms of who knows least about the Department they are charged with running, Education and HUD respectively. They are two of what Trump promised us when he took office, that he would bring into the White House “the best people”.
DeVos and Carson are the incompetents. Then there are the ethically challenged ones, like Pruitt and Zinke and Shulkin and Javanka. Then there are the wife beaters, like Rob Porter.
Topping off Trump team are the sycophants, like Mnuchin, who defends Trump’s slurs toward others as “he likes to give people funny names”. That would include calling Senator Warren “Pocahontas”. I wonder if Mnuchin would find it funny if Trump called him “little Jew boy”.
This is the least talented and least qualified White House team in my lifetime, serving the least talented and least qualified president. We shouldn’t expect much. Trump’s talent is in fleecing people for his personal gain. That’s not what a president does.
