Because if you’ve been paying attention Porter has been making her mark like this from the get go. A newbie but no rando, in my book. The type of politician we need. In spades.

At least he didn't think she was asking about the speedwagon.

Imagine if Rick Perry had to show up and explain how energy works.

Or if Barr had to give a talk about legal ethics.

Or if that Devos witch had to talk about how public schools work.

Now imagine a Democratic or Republican cabinet-level member, just one, who is as profoundly unqualified to serve our government as these hacks that Trump has in spades. Say what you will about the corruption of W's administration, but Rummy, Gates, Paulson, Condi Rice, Powell, Ashcroft, Todd Whitman, they were all accomplished career politicians who understood their departments. Bush's Education guy, Page, wasn't just someone sitting with him the morning of 9/11, he was an accomplished career educator.

These people are a joke. Just inept across the board at anything that doesn't involve grift.

.
And Mnuchchin and Kelly, and the EPA and interior folks. Wilbur Ross

Devos nomination hearings -teacher need guns in case of bears.

All Trump cabinet members are there to either wreck the institutions and/or extract whatever it has of worth for personal or Trump's benefit. Bannon did a bang up job helping him find the worst most degrading people for each spot. If this were a movie - like Batman with a host of villains - The best Hollywood casting agent could not find more imaginative [expletive] to fill these roles.

Trashing govt. When does the Libertarian Utopia start?

I think it's supposed to be distracting. He says something dumb, it goes viral, he says Democrats are radicals, it goes away in the minds of his constituency.
