Wednesday/ Trump’s ‘Best People’

From today’s New York Times, in an opinion piece by it editorial board, called ‘Trump’s ‘Best People*’ Are the Worst‘ :
Consider the Trump appointees who have been in the news lately.
Let’s start with Dr. Ronny Jackson, the White House physician whom President Trump nominated to run the Department of Veterans Affairs, which provides health care to more than nine million vets and is the second-largest federal department, after the Pentagon. More than 20 people who have worked with Dr. Jackson told senators either that he was drunk on the job, handed out sleeping pills, and even opioids, like Skittles, or screamed at his staff. The latest allegation is that he reportedly got drunk and wrecked a government car.

*Trump, ever the snake oil salesman on the campaign trail, repeatedly boasted that he will hire only the ‘best people’.

And here is the Washington Post weighing in, quoted by cable news channel MSNBC. Trump does not know what government officials do – and should do. And he does not care.
