To speed things along in the vetting process, perhaps members of the White House Press Corps should take over the WH Personnel Office? Der Dotard stated that the press is part of the vetting process--why not formalize it? That way creeps like this would avoid getting hired in the first place...

I'd bet most trump associates have similar bigoted beliefs about something. This is just one that got caught. Like most cops abuse their power. It's rare that one gets caught on tape and held to account.

Trump says he doesn't need to vet his hires. That's the job of the news media. Who he also says are a bunch of liars.

Got that trumpers? Trump says it's up to the lying news media to find out what is wrong with his appointments. And it's their fault if he hires someone bad.

most trump associates like this one were interested in working in the government sector regardless of who occupies the WH.

associates like this will have jobs in the govt sector if a democrat wins next time.

I can't argue with that.

That wasn't my point though.

Wow. Sounds like a certain democratic congress woman. See, the Dems and Republicans do have things in common in spite of talk otherwise.

What makes you say that?

Most Trump associates like this one resign their first government job in disgrace -- or withdraw their nomination before it even gets that far -- after Trump's people gave them the "Best and Brightest" Seal of Approval.

When will people ever learn:

DON'T PUT IT ON SOCIAL MEDIA!

#11 | Posted by goatman at 2019-09-03 10:58 PM | Reply

I don't think people need to learn to hide their true beliefs from social media.

That sounds like a thing a sociopath would learn, or encourage others to learn.

If you're in the public eye, post NOTHING other than vanilla things about your family. There's always some fringe group that will nitpick anything you say. Some will hear "dog whistles" that even dogs couldn't hear.

You live in fear of your true beliefs being discovered.

Good. Your true beliefs are deplorable.

Screw you and your toxic 'Cancel-Culture'.

"Cancel-culture" is some nasty crap and the Trumpists have figured out how to wield it and this is precisely why the NYT has freaked out. Being held to a consistent standard is not fun. The left-wing 'get-out-of-jail-free card' is becoming harder to find as is the effect of purchasing indulgences from the Catholic Church...excuse me...purchasing "carbon credits" from Al Gore.

"carbon credits"

Think about what you're saying.
What you're saying is "JeffJ doesn't believe in market solutions."
Why would you say a thing like that?
???

Oh, I see you already are.
Carry on, then!

Notice that JeffJ can't defend his pooh-poohing of market forces, so instead he does what he does best: Pooh-poohing Snoofy.

LOL Jeff is the quality posted you wish you were. But you just can't understand that your stupid rhetorical questions and twisting of other people's words just doesn't work on honest people. And oyu are lost when you are called out on that kind of --------.

Trump stocks the swamp and the media drains it.

Winning!

JeffJ, any more thoughs on why carbon markets can't work, even as markets for most other commodities have been quite successful?

Feels like you're dismissing markets as part and parcel of your reflex denial of global warming.

Feels bad man.

It's weird how these type of people keep ending up working for Trump. It's almost like he might agree with them or something.

Facebook.... the number one career ender... seriously, more people have been fired for using that thing....

You'd think people would have learned that by now...

but like the "Nigerian Prince" scam, it keeps going and going...destroying everyone in it's path...
