Trump Transition Team Turmoil: The Apprentice, Part II — Bottom of the Barrel — Hey, Look Here

Trump on the Job Seeking Cabinet & Department Heads 

For Secretary of State 
(Has 47% support, too)

WTF: Seriously considering me? Wow

Rick “Oops” Perry as FDR 
(imagine that)

Headlines from the UK (Daily Mail) selective ones for the blog today:

1.  This weekend Trump is planning to meet with GOP 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney in New Jersey as NBC reported Trump was considering Romney for Secretary of State (Romney famously spoke out in early March, urging Republicans not to nominate Trump calling him a “'phony and fraud.” Adding: “His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He's playing members of the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House, and all we get is a lousy hat).

Trump for his part ridiculed Romney as a “choker” during his own presidential campaign for having failed to bet President Obama. 

2.  South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley also touted for State (Haley bashed the “angriest” voices in party, primarily aimed at Trump). * CNN broke the news that Trump would be meeting with the ex-Massachusetts governor over the weekend in Bedminster, NJ, site of a Trump golf course where he also plans to head for more meetings. (Also, Haley’s voting record and stance on issues can be seen here).  

3.  Former Texas governor Rick Perry touted for Energy Department Secretary (Perry had extensive dealings with big oil and gas and legal issues while he was Gov. of Texas).

NBC also reported that the position the two men were set to discuss was secretary of state, citing a source “familiar with Trump's thinking.”

Folks it don’t get any better than this. Trump is not only reaching for straws to learn about even the most basics of government, but he is reaching near the bottom of the proverbial barrel to that end. Boy, what a show.

I expect Dick Cheney and Karl Rove to show up at any minute to try and salvage this mess.

Noteworthy: Will Trump always hold meeting and such at his resort areas? Hey, just asking… maybe a tax write-off or 1040 deduction of some sort? Just guessing.

Boy, what a show – stay tuned for Act II and III as we head toward January 20th.
