Seems like one in the gaggle of incompetent, morally challenged, ethically deficient, rubes surrounding Kim Il Don have stepped on their schlong yet again. Now, Gentleman Jeff has started to flail around to figure out a way to avoid perjury charges and the honor of being the second appointee to "spend more time with his family."
Some of the problem probably could have been avoided if the transition team had let the contract for ethics training .... but no, Trump U wasn't referenced in the curriculum.
Of course, much of the problem stems from the nature of the very people who were appointed in the first place. Hmmmm let's see: an Education Secretary without any experience in public schools -as either a student, parent, teacher or administrator. Housing Secretary whose only qualification is that he once lived in a house in Detroit. An Energy Secretary who wanted to eliminate the department and didn't know what its primary function was.A Director of HHS who wants to take away healthcare and who engaged in insider stock trading and possible manipulation while a member of Congress. A Transportation Secretary married to that idiot Mitch McConnell, who gutted the Labor department in her eight years with the W administration. A Secretary of Commerce who made his bones as a "vulture capitalist." The EPA Administrator was in the pocket of the extraction industry while in Oklahoma and is openly hostile to the Agency's work and a climate change denier. A (now withdrawn) Labor secretary who hated workers, hired undocumented domestics and was possibly a wife-beater. We have a Secretary of State with no foreign policy or diplomatic experience. Then we have nominees for the Army and Navy who have withdrawn, a National Security Advisor who was a liar (and was fired by President Obama), and his replacement who was rebuked by the Army in 2015 for his handling of a sexual assault case.
Sessions is in a class by himself. Described by one blogger as. "... a walking scandal, a demented disgusting pile of garbage regularly mislabeled a "human" in news stories." You can draw your own conclusions.
Of course, we have the nodding compliance and cooperation of the US Senate and their inability to choose country over party, but then again, that's what it means to be a Republican these days. In a normal, sane world, this aggregation of dimwitted dolts, thieves, and political hacks would have been sent packing before they even came up for a vote.
This is just a bit of the mess created so far. There's little said about the appalling sloth of even nominating executives to fill the over 500 positions requiring Senate confirmation (Deputy Director, Assistant Deputy Assistant Director and so on) ... and many of the choices have been nixed because of hurt feelings on the part of Kim, his family or the nefarious leeches (Bannon, Priebus, Conway, Spicer) attached to this ship of fools.
Ah well, FREEDOM !!
