As all of this sinks in on both sides, we’re thinking of appointments and cabinet posts. Here’s one: Does Trump replace Comey? Clinton fired Sessions before his term was out, so there is precedent. I say he does or either Comey steps down.

Jared Kushner was Trump’s point man this morning at the White House, and met with the Chief of Staff. Kushner has been mentioned as the Trump gate keeper in the past 6 months. I know some positions in the executive branch have nepotism policies. Is Chief of Staff one? I know advisors do not. November 10, 2016 1:21 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 I don’t think Jared has the chops for that job. Gimme a Chris Christie or someone w experience and balls there November 10, 2016 1:31 PM Log in to Reply Ellynn I agree. However; Trump has placed inexperience people with no chops in other key positions in both his campaign and in his professional dealings. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t. Christie appointment will be on hold until after he cleans up his own mess with his former aids. November 10, 2016 2:13 PM Log in to Reply Will Durant Forget Assange.

Because it really would be folly, madness in fact, to let an elite that so little understands ordinary people, and in fact loathes them, to run society unilaterally. Now that would be dangerous, more dangerous than Trump.” November 10, 2016 9:55 PM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse Yeah, the well-educated elected Trump, a man whose understanding of ordinary people is that of a rich reality TV star, so we’ve got that going for us.
