    Default The Trump Presidency - Making America Great Again

    I don't see why we're still discussing this in a thread for Election Day. It's over. It's done. President Trump is going to be a thing and it's time to move forward.

    Donal Trump's proposed cabinet: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabinet_of_Donald_Trump

    I watched some of the questioning of Betsy DeVos last night and I gotta say...how can anyone watch that and think Donald Trump is going to make America better?

    Examples: http://www.motherjones.com/politics/...anken-real-bad

    And this is one nominee. Everyone he's put forward so far has been terrible for one reason or another, and seem to go against everything Trump said in his campaign.

    I'm just trying to understand. I know politicians, lobbyists, etc are horrible on both sides. But how can people still sit back and say "America's gonna be great!" while watching Trump contradict himself at every turn?

    More cabinet fun comes with the admission that Rick Perry took on the Secretary of Energy job without knowing that 2/3's of the job relates to maintaining our nuclear weapons program.

    Lead us from death to victory, from falsehood to truth.
    Lead us from despair to hope, from faith to slaughter.
    Lead us to His strength and an eternity of war.
    Let His wrath fill our hearts.
    Death, war, and blood;
    in vengeance serve the Emperor and the name of Dorn!?

    What better way to take on big government and shake things up than with people who have no idea what the concept of actual governance actually entails?

    You beat me to it. I was just thinking yesterday how we need a new thread to discuss Trump's presidency, but I didn't make it.

    As a Trump supporter, I am really not happy with his pick for Secretary of Education. This lady seems like a total nut, although I will admit that I don't know much about her aside from what I saw and read from her hearing yesterday...and it wasn't good.

    I live in the state of Michigan, and the DeVos family's dismantling of this state's educational system was on full display in those hearings. Everything Betsy DeVos and her husband Dick have preached (literally) about education has led to the ruination of public schools not just in Detroit, but across the state. And the charter schools and the hyperspeed push for Christianity in schools isn't going so well for the state in terms of standardized testing, either.

    Michigan residents knew exactly what it was. I wasn't surprised at all.

    She was very memeable, that's for sure.

    President is in favor of choice, he's going to get some nominee in favor of it pushed through. Her history of strong support of Common Core pushes hard against Trump though.

    From my understanding the DeVos family is about as out of touch as you can get in terms of understanding the state of the school system in the United States. Rich private school family that lives off the Amway billions that has never had to step foot in a public school or struggle/borrow to pay tuition.

    They represent the 1%, much like all of Trump's picks (and Trump himself) do. He fooled so many people.

    The DeVoss family owns Amway and anyone who sells Amway becomes an obnoxious turd,its also more of a cult than a company which is a bit worrying.
    By the way, I was in Michigan last week, very nice place but a bit cold for me coming out of summer.

    Going from the most educated cabinet in US history to the least educated is astounding. Also, going from the most diverse to least diverse in decades. 13 white men, two white women, and a black man. Most of them have no prior government experience. I honestly feel like we live in a reality show now.

    It's pretty astounding, yeah. But also, any Republican that won this election would do the same thing. Maybe they'd have more experienced people but the diversity was going out the window either way.

    The GOP love their white leaders.

    And the "race doesn't matter, it should go to the most qualified!" people have no argument here with these picks. He literally just picked a bunch of rich, white yes men that will be the smokescreen he needs to hide behind to ride out these 4 years.

    The most distressing elements of the incoming government so far for me are:

    The separation of church and state- Jeff Sessions unsure if secular people understand "truth", and Betsy DeVos as education secretary.

    Climate change denial- From top to bottom, Trump, to the House of Representatives Science panel (oversees the EPA and NOAA), all think that climate change isn't real, and/or isn't man-made. Scientists have a 97 percent consensus that says otherwise- the same consensus that smoking leads to cancer.

    LGBT equality- Supreme Court picks and Trumps executive orders will shape quite a bit in the wrong direction.

    So that was a fun weekend.

    Trump's first acts were to make it harder for Americans to get mortgages and began the steps to dismantle the ACA before any alternative is in place.

    Speaking of alternatives, Sean Spicer offered up "alternative facts" (re: lies) about the inauguration crowd, like anyone not named Donald Trump gives a fuck.

    A bunch of idiots burned and broke things on Friday, but one of those idiots punched a Nazi in the head so it wasn't a total waste. Fortunately it was followed up by a very inspirational worldwide march that was hopefully the first of many.

    How's everyone doing?

    I think it is pretty sad the amount of slut shaming some of those SJWs were giving to Trump's wife over the months. What happened to wanting strong women and standing behind a lady who self made herself to be wealthy? Why did those virtues go out the window for her?

    On the bright side though, Trump did get more fat women walking in a single day than Michelle did in 8 years.


    On a more serious note. Generals Mattis and Kelly flew through their nominations, Mattis getting all but one vote, and Kelly getting all but 11. Those were probably Trump's two best nominations though.

    Riding Trump's dick is not a virtue most women seek to aspire to. Outside of that, what did she really do?

    The fact that Spicer and co felt the need to lie about how many people attended the inauguration is worrying. It was day 1 of his Presidency and that was a focus.

    References to climate change are being removed from the White House website, that says a lot and none of it is good.
