Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

Recommended Posts

^^^Particularly gratifying. However, his people know he's lying for expediency.

 

This may be the most lyingest administration in a couple of centuries.

Were all of those requirements met by all of Obama's appointments?  Serious question.  

From what I heard on radio, yes all of Obama's appointments satisfied their background checks and have been vetted prior to the hearings. Trumps picks are especially important bc many have never held a public office and have never had any background check by the FBI, etc so everything is starting from scratch. 

 

In a letter released by Senate Democrats, the director of the independent Office of Government Ethics, Walter Shaub, expressed concern that several of Trump’s nominees with scheduled hearings have yet to complete the ethics review process as of Jan. 6, 2017.

"I am not aware of any occasion in the four decades since OGE was established when the Senate held a confirmation hearing before the nominee had completed the ethics review," Shaub wrote. "In fact, OGE has not received even the initial draft financial disclosure reports for some of the nominees scheduled for hearings."

Out of the Trump picks with confirmation hearings scheduled, ethics forms have been submitted for attorney general nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions, secretary of state nominee Rex Tillerson, defense secretary nominee James Mattis and transportation secretary nominee Elaine Chao, according to the Associated Press.

It’s unclear if forms have been submitted for CIA director nominee Rep. Mike Pompeo, homeland security secretary nominee Gen. John Kelly, and housing secretary nominee Ben Carson.

Forms have not been submitted for education secretary nominee Betsy DeVos or commerce secretary Wilbur Ross.

Sessions says that same sex marriage is settled law? LOL, his statement is accurate but deceptive. If the SCOTUS gets 2 conservative judges, the law could be changed and Sessions would say that is now the "settled law". I feel like he wormed his way out of the spirit of the question but Im just going off an article and not an actual audio.

I think every Senator should have had to cast an unopened vote before every confirmation and then reveal it with their actual vote at the end, and have to explain why they changed their minds (if they did).

 

My guess?  Not a single vote would change.

Oh absolutely, the fix is totally in on these things and I dare say that these votes will fall along party lines. The GOP are going to act like they have a mandate and shove everything through that they ever wanted.

Great... Anti-vaccine people in the WH. 

 

 

This is as insane an appointment as there is. Putting an anti-vaccine crazy person in charge of vaccine safety and scientific integrity. It's right up there with the EPA appointment.

^^^^ WOW, that twitter conversation to the tweet you posted was very informative and a good read. Yeesh. I never thought I would see that on twitter. An actual solid discussion without too much name calling or blaming Obama.

I love the response...we're worried now of McCarthyism.

 

Jenny McCarthyism. 

 

 

Bwahaha.

 

 

Damn..this is embarrassing. No one wants to play at the inauguration.


SAD!

Moby, who a quick Google would have shown has previously described President-elect Donald Trump as an “actual psychopath”, has been asked to DJ at one of Trump’s inauguration balls.

We also learned today that Charlotte Church was asked to sing.

“Your staff have asked me to sing at your inauguration, a simple Internet search would show I think you're a tyrant. Bye,” she tweeted.

As it stands, the Rockettes, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and 16-year-old "America's Got Talent" singer, Jackie Evancho will play Trump's inauguration.

And a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has resigned. 

When you've reached the pinnacle of your career(as you think of it, as a vocalist) and decide to quit over a performance???

 

THAT'S CALLED STANDING YOUR GROUND.

Anti-vaxers are morons who think a google search is better than real scientific research. 

Remind me why we don't have polio anymore.

Morons all of them...I'm surrounded by morons and Trump supporters which really is saying the same thing.

I don't want the inauguration to be softly sensual. Geez, WTF is that anyway?

4chan trolled CNN, buzzfeed, and US intelligence really hard.  Story is still developing.

 

This is what started it, it was a complete fabrication about Trumps kinky sex life, golden showers, Christmas pj parties, hookers, and the Russians.  It go so much traction that Obama and Trump were both briefed on it.  If you want a good laugh, read the pdf on buzzfeed.

4chan is a messageboard, from what I gather.  So where is the thread that originally started this stunt?

People in the IC community are calling it legit. I'm not seeing anything about a 4chan troll.
