Trump’s Extremely Unqualified Picks

Rachel Maddow looks at how Donald Trump’s cabinet has been rife with scandal from the beginning of his term, and rounds up recent reports of brazen corruption by Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao


Trump nominee for federal judge has never tried a case

Trump nominated Brett J. Talley, a 36 year old blogger who has practiced law for three years, has never tried a case and who thinks Hillary Clinton should be Jailed, for a lifetime appointment on the Federal Bench.

Every single one of these Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to approve the nomination of the 36 year old IDIOT with no trial experience. It’s bad enough that Trump nominated this idiot, but it’s reasonable to expect Senators, most of whom are lawyers to provide some checks and balances from incompetent and inexperienced people being hired and employed in key positions.

This more proof Republicans are unqualified to be in positions of power.


Trump Judicial pick can’t answer basic law questions

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) questions Matthew Spencer Petersen, President Trump’s nominee for district court judge about his lack of experience trying cases in court. Cenk Uygur, the host of The Young Turks, breaks down the video. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

Another example of what an IDIOT Trump is for nominating this totally unqualified person to be a Federal Judge.

This is also an example of why it’s a mistake to vote for Republicans. No Democrat in history has ever nominated such unqualified people to Government positions.

Trump Picks Warmonger John Bolton as National Security Advisor

John Bolton was part of the effort to mislead the US into the disastrous Iraq war and has supported military action against North Korea and Iran. He was too extreme to be confirmed as UN ambassador in 2005 and is the wrong person to be national security advisor now.

It is especially hard to understand why Trump would consider hiring Bolton when for years, Trump stated that the Iraq war was a disastrous mistake.


Donald Trump’s unqualified nominee for Environmental Quality

Trump’s nominee to lead the White House Council on Environmental Quality, Kathleen Hartnett White struggles to answer basic questions posed by the Senate committee on environment and public works on Thursday. Hartnett White, Trump’s nominee for the environmental quality council chair, had difficulty answering questions from Senators Ben Cardin and Sheldon Whitehouse on green house emissions and climate science

Ben Carson is Totally Unqualified to be HUD Secretary

Is Anybody Home at HUD? – ProPublica

In mid-May, Steve Preston, who served as the secretary of housing and urban development in the final two years of the George W. Bush administration, organized a dinner at the Metropolitan Club in Washington, D.C., for the new chief of that department, Ben Carson, and five other former secretaries whose joint tenure stretched all the way back to Gerald Ford.


Ben Carson has stated; “government-engineered attempts to legislate racial equality create consequences that often make matters worse”.

At a time when 7.4 million extremely low income households are unable to find safe, decent and affordable housing, the Department of Housing and Urban Development under Ben Carson is more interested in shaming working people than helping families struggling to make ends meet.


Ben Carson is totally unqualified to be HUD secretary

It makes little sense to hire a man who doesn’t really believe government can be a force for good to head an important government agency, particularly one so vital to Americans who live in poverty, Issac Bailey says.

Betsy DeVos is Totally Unqualified to be Education Secretary

Who Is Betsy DeVos?

Here’s how a billionaire who never went to public school became responsible for education in America.


Video title: Public (School) Enemy No. 1: Billionaire Betsy DeVos, Trump’s Pick for Education Secretary

Video description: Donald Trump nominated conservative billionaire Betsy DeVos to serve as Education Secretary. DeVos is the former chair of the Michigan Republican Party and a longtime backer of charter schools and vouchers for private and religious schools.

In response, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten said, “In nominating DeVos Trump makes it loud and clear that his education policy will focus on privatizing, defunding and destroying public education in America.” Since 1970, the DeVos family has invested at least $200 million in various right-wing causes. DeVos’s father-in-law is the co-founder of Amway and her brother is Erik Prince, founder of the mercenary firm Blackwater.

For more, we speak to former Assistant Secretary of Education Diane Ravitch, Center for Media and Democracy executive director Lisa Graves, and elected member of the Detroit Board of Education Tawanna Simpson.


$13,420,000 to Heritage Foundation via her family foundation

It appears Billionaire Betsy Devos appointment as Education Secretary is being given as a “Gratuity” for all the Millions she gave to Republicans because she is clearly not qualified to fill this position.

Despite the fact that Devos is not qualified and Thousands of people protested against her appointment, ONLY TWO REPUBLICANS opposed her nomination.

Proving once again that it’s a MISTAKE to vote for REPUBLICANS because they don’t listen to their constituents and ALWAYS side with Big Business, Billionaires and Corporations.

People are expressing their outrage!

Devos was met with protesters when she tried to use the main entrance to a public school in Washington, DC. One protestor yells, Shame! Shame! Shame! I think yelling YOU SUCK would be more appropriate.


And Trump said he’d hire “The Best People”…

The idea that Donald Trump picks “some of the best people” has become a JOKE. His idea of “best people” are in reality the worst people imaginable. He’s proven that he’s an idiot who don’t have a clue what he’s doing.

5 Reasons Betsy DeVos Sucks

Betsy DeVos is Trump’s new pick for Education Secretary, and it has become a very controversial nomination. Trump has shown time and time again that he nominates the most unqualified people to hold important positions (like his Attorney General, U.N. Ambassador, and head of the Environmental Protection Agency), and this is proof of yet another.

Opinion | Betsy DeVos Teaches the Value of Ignorance

Editorial “Government really sucks.” This belief, expressed by the just-confirmed education secretary, Betsy DeVos, in a 2015 speech to educators, may be the only qualification she needed for President Trump. Ms. DeVos is the perfect cabinet member for a president determined to appoint officials eager to destroy the agencies they run and weigh the fate of policies and programs based on ideological considerations.
