Weak vetting led to Cabinet confirmation surprises - POLITICO

Quote:
Steve Mnuchin, Donald Trump’s pick to be treasury Secretary, failed to list $100 million in assets on his federal disclosure forms. Vincent Viola, nominated to be Army secretary, punched a man in the face at a horse race last summer.

The ex-wife of Andrew Puzder, the labor secretary nominee, once appeared incognito on “Oprah” to raise domestic abuse allegations, which Puzder has denied. Betsy DeVos, Trump’s choice for education secretary, struggled to demonstrate a basic comprehension of department policy and basic education terms during her hearing this week. Two nominees didn’t pay taxes on their household employees.

This string of startling revelations over the past two weeks caught senior members of Trump’s staff by surprise, and they didn’t know some of the potential for problems before Senate confirmation hearings began, sources said. A person involved in preparing several nominees said, “They nominated these people first, and then they sort of vetted them. It’s exactly the reverse way you’re supposed to do it, and now you see the consequences.”

Nope, just another place for us to gather and share information about his administration.

Calling her a gold digger is just stating the obvious.

Please. Stop about Melania. The future of the country does not depend on whether Melania Trump displays the appropriate level of affection to her husband based on your perception of appropriateness. Leave her and her son out of it. They are not politicians. I'm sure they did not ask for this level of public scrutiny.

As much as I hated watching President Trump being sworn into office, I thought Melania looked perfectly lovely. Unless she does something that involves herself in politics that I dislike, then I will not participate in the ridiculousness of ripping this woman apart. It would be hypocritical to cheer my sisters, nieces, and friends tomorrow who are marching in support of women's rights and then turn around and bash this woman for no reason other than she is married to a man I dislike.
