What a surprise: Trumpy appoints a bunch of rich guys to his cabinet.

 

 

 

 

It's possible that they may also be well educated, experienced and so on as well as rich....

 

 

It is possibly they may have become rich by doing things like selling home mortgages to people who couldn't afford them then foreclosing on their homes.

Someone suggested to me that the election and post-election process, particularly the Wall Street appointments, looks exactly like a classic scam.

 

 

 

 

 

 

More like a classic comedy

 

Unfortunately political comedy has a way of turning to tragedy like Bush and his invasion of Iraq.

It's also possible that they may be a pack of crooks, liars, and shills for Trump's authoritarian anti-liberty regime.

Apart from the power and prestige, being President must be about the worst high profile job in the World.   Look at Obama.   From day one he and Michelle had to send their kids off to school in SUV's along with a whole bunch of Secret Service guys.    Pay is pathetic compared to  CEO's in the USA and New Zealand.    The president and his family become prime targets for terrorists and the deranged.   And in the case of Obama being able to achieve very little of what he wanted to do.   So maybe we need to give Trump a honeymoon period of a year or so and see how he deals with crises and similar!

No point in a honeymoon as he is already creating crises and similar. He is off to a great start with the Chinese. Interesting times indeed.

+1   He might even start World War Three before he becomes President.  undecided

 

If we survive Trump's presidency, I will be genuinely surprised.

No. he is just the President, he has brains but not here. He will be lead, he will spout on the TV but he will be led. Since he won his election, he has gone quiet, been nice, backtracked, diluted. To me he will try but he is a puppet.

Exactly.

 

I know exactly who is going to kill me - and he doesn't know or care who I am.

 

Very Minority Report.

I have stopped caring about it, the vast majority of the stuff written about him is probably fantasy and news media fiction.

But that's the very reason you *should* care. He's been elected on false pretences. He's not going to make any decisions. The whole "democratic" process has long ago been subverted.

Well, maybe like one of those puppets with tangled strings behaves unpredictably:



I'm not agreeing, but the video evidence is compelling. Oh yeah, he's going to change. Better familiarise yourself with executive sole powers of the president while you are waiting to see what he tries.

Great post. The FF is priceless. yes, I know he does have some powers, but this is way out of his area of expertise. He has to be advised, guided, thats how I see it playing out. He can't play the election game when he is crowned, in fact he has already backtracked on many issues already. I believe he will actually try to make a difference. I read summit the other week about how successful Presidents are on getting their promises through. It was a surprisingly consistent 70% average, not much either way.  

 

Cross the wall off, it will be big, it will be beautiful. Now its, it can be a fence in places. Reality is it will be a fence in places, and more Border staff and a token 500 metre wall.

 

Election --> Reality --> Budget
