I hope this isn't the way it appears. But I have yet to hear of anyone but old, fat, white, religious extremist, anti glbt, racist men being proposed for leadership in the Trump administration.

Not one woman, no blacks, no gays? Not even a hint of a moderate White House.

Did we just vote Hitler and the Third Riche into power? I'm pretty sure that's about how the nazis started, with good intentions.

How come no women, gays or minorities in the Trump Cabinet?

Cause none of those COUNT, heck they wouldnt even bother with women if they didn't have to.

He is being completely to true to the platform he ran on... who is surprised?

I actually don't think the majority of the proposed nominees are fat...but glad to hear that you are going to stick to your guns on calling everyone with different political opinions from yours racist etc. I assume that Democrat, female, Asian, Michelle Rhee who he is rumored to be nominating for Sec. of Education is fat, white, male, and racist too? I'd be interested in knowing how/when she grew a penis.

So minority status is #1 indicator of ability?

If you don't surround yourself with minorities, you must be Hitler?

Guess hating on old, fat white guys is OK?

Exactly.
Plus she's an immigrant.

Very few confirmed offers so far. People in running include women, minorities, and gays. Here's a list - check it out for yourself.

Who could be in Trump's Cabinet?

Just cause I said it seems women, minorities, gays, "don't count" means that they are an indicator of ability?
Your logic is flawed.

`Old white guys have it made... in the shade ... '

Why don't you educate yourself and review the Obama Transition Timeline?

Maybe that's asking way too much.


See this thread...

When Obama Named His Cabinet Picks After 2008 Election

...so you can keep score.

And David Axelrod, President Obama’s chief strategist, tweeted Thursday that the Trump campaign isn’t behind at all:We hadn't made any major appointments at this point in 2008. I don't remember being criticized for it. https://t.co/3yXvA8g6bL

For all of the yodelers in the media and on CD about the lack of speed of Trump's picks which to you and the media means chaos, Obama was elected November 4, 2008. Here's when he made his big picks. Remember anyone complaining about him dribbling them out and how it meant chaos? Remember anyone whining that he didn't make his cabinet picks quick enough? Yeah, me neither.

People like the person who started this thread don't believe in selecting people on character and ability.

Nope, skin pigmentation and sexual preference is what matters.

Of course, hypocrites like this wouldn't live very long if they were forced to pick a surgeon in a time of emergency for themselves .. based on the same standards!
