This is purely so Trump doesn't have to ask for loyalty (instead of competence).

He can just fire at will until our federal government is a shell with full of sycophants who don't know what they're doing.

Dotard has been responsible for a lot of horrible things, but this might be the move that, if he gets a second term, forever breaks our government. Dems will have to track the Cultists hired and hidden in the bureaucracy, root them out and fire them, because you know they will throw a wrench in the gears at every opportunity. The difference between Democrats, Republiclowns, and Trumpublicans in government service is that Democrats believe in the government's ability to make the lives of citizens better and that government service is an honorable profession; Republiclowns don't believe that government works but if they find themselves working in government at least show up for work and don't break too many things for fear of getting blamed; and Trumpublicans believe that government doesn't work, and will do everything in their power to prove that by breaking it. Trumpublicans used to be known as the Tea Party, a bunch of hypocritical racists POS who thought the deficit was the predominant issue in this country until their cult leader was put in the WH by James Comey an Putin.

Republicans are going to scream "bloody murder" when President Biden and a Democratically controlled Congress expand the court but they have allowed cultists to take over our Supreme Court leaving us no choice but to make them irrelevant. Their extremism will necessitate extremeism to combat it.

Hey Ronald Sanders, it's too late. You've already been part of an administration that replaced apolitical expertise with political obeisance.

Note that Trump's civil servant 'executive order' goes into effect the day before he would be forced to leave office if he loses the election. This means that out-of-spite, he could fire thousands of civil servants, throwing Washington into total chaos just as Biden is trying to form a new government.

Now that you're pointing it out that has to be the entire reason behind the move. Dude and and his supporters really are garbage humans.

This is why these sort of things need to be enshrined in LAW.
