    Dear god. Now I'm really frightened. That could possibly be the worst administration in this country's history by a long shot. A bunch of climate denying, socially retarded, in the back pocket of corporate and big energy, right wing nut jobs.

    It's going to be rough no matter who he picks...his choices are limited precisely because he's an outsider, arriving with no debts owed and no government lifers.

    And from what I'm reading, contrary to prior administrations where some of the old stays to help the new, nobody on Obama's staff is willing to work for Trump. While I understand what they are trying to do, it's time to put country and safety before pouting.

    That's actually a good thing. It ensures there's no Muslim Brotherhood in our gov't anymore.

    Oh my God they're all white - minus Carson? And men. Minus kellyanne.

    Looks good to me. Means a lot more tears.

    Ya know after 8 years of Obama and being told we're the problem, hypothetically speaking - I'm ready to play the part.

    Why didn't we just elect this kellyanne chick. She's smarter than any of them.

    I have heard rumblings of Laura Ingraham as Press Secretary and Steve Bannon as Chief of Staff. I think, if he is smart, Trump will keep Chris Christie out of the administration and at arms length given his legal woes. I think that is part of the reason that Pence is leading the transition and not Christie, as was the original plan. I just hope to God he doesn't appoint Sarah Palin to anything.....it would be the intellectual equivalent of appointing Al Sharpton. I think Mike McCaul would make a very good Secretary of Defense. I imagine he will select Guiliani for AG and Newt for SOS.

    I can't believe he would be stupid enough to nominate Ingraham, Bannon or Palin. They are poison both practically and politically. If he picks anyone of the three I think fears will be realized.
