Trump's Cabinet of Misfits

I just thought that it would be nifty to have a thread dedicated towards Trump's new appointees. Please feel free to make comments about them, but let's try to keep everything positive and supportive and avoid any rancor.

Senator Jeff Sessions - Attorney General

Rep. Mike Pompeo - CIA Director

Retired Army Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn - National Security Advisor

Trump had the good taste and foresight to request that Sen. Sessions not wear his KKK bedsheet to his swearing-in ceremony, which I take as an olive branch held out to our nervous minority population....

I bet if someone called Mike Flynn a misfit to his face, he'd knock them out.

Wait till Mattis gets SECDEF.

Positive spin only?

Ok, how lovely it is that Jeff Sessions known racism prevented him from becoming a federal judge, which made him available for the appointment to attorney general. Otherwise his schedule might not have worked out.

Was Sessions facing a Democrat majority senate?

Not that party politics might be involved.

I believe it was a republican Sen that turned him down.

I think it would be a shame if a former Gen in the US military was not able to control his anger better than that. Since he was selected by Trump that trait would make them 2 peas in a pod except for the deferment thing but hey... Close enough.

Sessions nomination for a judgeship came when the senate was Democrat majority. Ironically, former Klan member Byrd was majority leader.

He seems to have recovered.

The wikipaedia article is full of unacknowledge intrigue when you dig into it.
