Donald Trump, during the campaign, swore that he didn't have to know anything, and he would simply hire the BEST people.

Then he hired crooked Generals, Steve Bannon, his kids, wife beaters, and coffee boys, who flat out lied to the FBI.

This is his idea of the "Best People"......and this is who he's taking advice from...............criminals and con artists and liars.

What bad people? The opposition has been trying to find dirt on all of the White House inner circle and they have successfully, with the media's help, forced some good people out of there. Mr Trump is finding out that politics is far worse than business.

He is not a good or skilled hiring manager. He really does not understand people. While this makes no sense, it is clear. There is nothing magical about it, possibly he is not as great as he once was. He clearly is not a person who hires, "TOP! TOP! TOP! people!" as he tells us. Many others are set to be fired or resign shortly too.

I do not hate the guy, I do not like him either. He is a person though. He made some very dumb choices. Now to try to make himself feel better he endlessly tweets or tells people how amazing he is.

People have the theory that Trump appointed them to cause everyone to lose their minds and also to watch them hang themselves so to speak. If you give someone enough rope, they'll eventually hang themselves with it.

Meaning he's giving a lot of freedom to a lot of questionable people and they're slowly screwing themselves over one by one. Which is great because it weeds out the corrupt politicans.

Donald planned to place the worse people in his cabinet to keep his base co-dependent and subservient. Just like his reality shows because he is the "star" he is the only one allowed to shine. Perhaps, he even uses blackmail similar to that of a communist dictator Putin.

There has to be a very good reason why the Republicans are willing to destroy their reputations and their political party for a narcissistic sociopath who attacks the FBI and DOJ while he is being investigated. The GOP is corrupt, it will never be the same again and that is a very good thing.

He has no idea what he is doing and he also out to Goldman Sachs. It's all about greed. No one with morals wants to work for him.

An unprecedented number of some of the most crucial jobs in government have yet to be filled by a presidential appointee. As a result, former federal officials warn, a historic gap has developed in governmental processes and preparedness.

He isn't a politician and perhaps doesn't realize who is good and bad as far as politicians go.
