    Not even sure the word “laughable” covers it.

    Kind of interesting. Ratcliffe seems to be a solid Conservative & alos he’s an Ashcroft guy, so this is kind of a dig at the Bushes. Nice move by the Maniac.

    I'm gonna see if you get this, Trump is hiring well qualified people, they just don't agree with his approach and favor the time tested (worn out) approach. So they resign

    If he is constantly hiring people that don't agree with his approach then he isn't very good at hiring people that agree with his approach. There isn't really great way to sugarcoat that. His cabinet has more turnover than my local McDonalds.

    DC hates outsiders. Every outsider he has brought in has been attacked by the establishment.

    It’s a swamp. He’s trying to find the least swampy swamp critters he can find. We all knew this would be his biggest challenge other than the witch hunt.

    So how many tries does he get before it is ok to criticize him for being terrible at hiring people?

    You act like it is solely his decision on every hire. How naive......much like your entire political philosophy

    Ok, I blame him and everyone else involved in many bad hires but I am going to have to assume that he has the final say in the hiring process for cabinet members unless you have some pretty strong evidence to the contrary. He is the one that wanted to boast about hiring the best people so he is going to have to own it when they turn out to not really be the best people.

    A lot more. Every swamp critter he gets rid of earns him another dozen fires.

    Why would Wreck or anybody on the left concern themselves with the number of hires in the Trump Administration? They should be laughing and enjoying it. Well, they know that with every move, more is getting done and progress by the right is being made, that's why. Typically you hire a bunch of stiff empty suit career government types who sit there and surf porn and pick boogers all day. There is no resume pool of career business people who have made the transition to high level government job - that job trait does not exist. Most business people who end up in government want to claw their eyes out at the backwards, beauracratic, glacial way things are done. So good for him to keep replacing people. I've worked with some super large companies due to acquisitions over the years, and I've never made it longer than 1 year and 1 day. Most of the time I leave within 3 months because the culture is so awful. Everybody is a 9-to-5er, has no ambition, and doesn't care about much.

    So Wreck, tell me does the president hire people who will follow his approach or does the president hire people who tell him what his approach should be ?

    The entire reason Trump is popular is because he says and does what he thinks not b/c he says and does what subordinates think

    So Trump is great because he makes bad hiring decisions but doesn't listen to them? That is an interesting spin. If the people he is hiring misled him during the hiring process then it is still his fault for hiring them. This wouldn't be that big of a deal for one or two people but when you make 15 bad hires, you can't really blame it on the people you are hiring anymore. You are just bad at finding quality people or quality people don't want to work for you.

    Not to mention that the Senate has to confirm a good portion of the people he "picks". Anyone that believes there is no backroom horse trading going on is foolish. Axing individuals after the fact is easier than having all your nominees held up by the swamp in the Senate.

    Sounds like you don't really like Trump. If I were you, I wouldn't vote for him.
