Trump’s Extremely Unqualified Picks

Senate GOP keeps endorsing Trump’s unqualified judicial nominees

The American Bar Association evaluates the qualifications of judicial nominees, and in most instances, across multiple administrations, the ABA determines that the nominees are prepared to serve on the federal bench. In the Obama era, for example, literally none of the Democratic president’s nominees received a “not qualified” rating.

Trump nominee for federal judge has never tried a case

Trump nominated Brett J. Talley, a 36 year old blogger who has practiced law for three years, has never tried a case and who thinks Hillary Clinton should be Jailed, for a lifetime appointment on the Federal Bench.

And Trump said he’d hire “The Best People”.

 

Every single one of these Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to approve the nomination of the 36 year old IDIOT with no trial experience. It’s bad enough that Trump nominated this idiot, but it’s reasonable to expect Senators, most of whom are lawyers to provide some checks and balances from incompetent and inexperienced people being hired and employed in key positions.

This more proof Republicans are unqualified to be in positions of power.

Ben Carson is Totally Unqualified to be HUD Secretary

Is Anybody Home at HUD? – ProPublica

In mid-May, Steve Preston, who served as the secretary of housing and urban development in the final two years of the George W. Bush administration, organized a dinner at the Metropolitan Club in Washington, D.C., for the new chief of that department, Ben Carson, and five other former secretaries whose joint tenure stretched all the way back to Gerald Ford.

 

Ben Carson has stated; “government-engineered attempts to legislate racial equality create consequences that often make matters worse”.

At a time when 7.4 million extremely low income households are unable to find safe, decent and affordable housing, the Department of Housing and Urban Development under Ben Carson is more interested in shaming working people than helping families struggling to make ends meet.

 

Ben Carson is totally unqualified to be HUD secretary

Carson is a brilliant, pioneering neurosurgeon who backed Trump after he gave up on his own bid to become president and rose to national political prominence by challenging President Barack Obama during the National Prayer Breakfast, instantly earning credibility from the far right.

Video description: Donald Trump nominated conservative billionaire Betsy DeVos to serve as Education Secretary. DeVos is the former chair of the Michigan Republican Party and a longtime backer of charter schools and vouchers for private and religious schools.

In response, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten said, “In nominating DeVos Trump makes it loud and clear that his education policy will focus on privatizing, defunding and destroying public education in America.” Since 1970, the DeVos family has invested at least $200 million in various right-wing causes. DeVos’s father-in-law is the co-founder of Amway and her brother is Erik Prince, founder of the mercenary firm Blackwater.

For more, we speak to former Assistant Secretary of Education Diane Ravitch, Center for Media and Democracy executive director Lisa Graves, and elected member of the Detroit Board of Education Tawanna Simpson.

It appears Billionaire Betsy Devos appointment as Education Secretary is being given as a “Gratuity” for all the Millions she gave to Republicans because she is clearly not qualified to fill this position.

Despite the fact that Devos is not qualified and Thousands of people protested against her appointment, ONLY TWO REPUBLICANS opposed her nomination.

Proving once again that it’s a MISTAKE to vote for REPUBLICANS because they don’t listen to their constituents and ALWAYS side with Big Business, Billionaires and Corporations.

People are expressing their outrage!

Devos was met with protesters when she tried to use the main entrance to a public school in Washington, DC. One protestor yells, Shame! Shame! Shame! I think yelling YOU SUCK would be more appropriate.

5 Reasons Betsy DeVos Sucks

Betsy DeVos is Trump’s new pick for Education Secretary, and it has become a very controversial nomination.

Ambassador, and head of the Environmental Protection Agency), and this is proof of yet another.

Opinion | Betsy DeVos Teaches the Value of Ignorance

“Government really sucks.” This belief, expressed by the just-confirmed education secretary, Betsy DeVos, in a 2015 speech to educators, may be the only qualification she needed for President Trump. Ms. DeVos is the perfect cabinet member for a president determined to appoint officials eager to destroy the agencies they run and weigh the fate of policies and programs based on ideological considerations.
