Obvi can’t read too much into these speeches, but two things he said stuck out to me.

Giving heads of agencies and departments the ability to fire staff who “undermine the public trust or fail the American people “ sounds authoritarian AF.

And deciding immigration based on education and “merit” is all kinds of wrong, classist, and unamerican.



1. can't agy/dept heads fire employees already? isn't that what dept heads do? hire and fire people?? not gonna lie, that one, and the outrage around it confuses me...

2. education, yeah...but if 'merit' means you can't be a criminal, then i agree on that one

also like to point out that we're being lectured on what's classist by a guy who has/had a cook, a housecleaner, and a driver...always fun :mrgreen:

1. I think federal employees have protections against being fired without cause unless part of a wider furlough or downsizing.

2. I don’t think anyone wants criminals in

On the last one, blow me

Yeah, part of what makes the government so incredibly awesome at anything that they do is that their employees have almost no fear of being fired.

You shouldn't be able to be fired from a regular assed civil service job by a political appointee because of who you vote for.

Head of the CDC just resigned:

“You don’t buy tobacco stocks when you are the head of the CDC. It’s ridiculous; it gives a terrible appearance,” said Richard Painter, who served as George W. Bush’s chief ethics lawyer from 2005 to 2007. He described the move as “tone deaf,” given the CDC’s role in leading anti-smoking efforts.

Hopefully Newt Gingrich has another qualified candidate to offer up.

Aren't most tobacco companies diversified now, such that cigarettes are a small part of their business? I don't really see the outrage here, but maybe I am being obtuse.

I don't think Japan Tobacco is all that diversified: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japan_Tobacco

She was told to divest per ethics rules and instead bought more tobacco stocks.

Maybe you want more of our officials to have to recuse themselves for conflicts, but I don't.

I think we actually should base more immigration on merit. Given how the nature of the economy has changed, it makes sense to want to recruit more talent around engineering, medicine, etc, than some average Joe off the street somewhere.

Wolff's twitter spree right after he got kicked off the set was hilarious.
