I did not know about this, and now that I do, my opinion of Trump is even lower than I thought possible. I tried to forget the names Kellyanne Conway and Sean Spicer, and almost had, when this story was revealed by the New York Times. These two paid liars were appointed to a board of advisers to our military academies, along with sixteen others wo are woefully unqualified to have their positions.
[The Biden administration was seeking to ensure that board members were “qualified to serve” and aligned with the president’s values, said Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary.]
Now let’s talk about how ridiculous this action by the worst man in the world actually was. Trump intentionally weakened our military. Conway and Spicer are jokes. She was the ultimate spin doctor who never answered a direct question in her life. Spicer’s lies were so egregious no one believed him. “President Trump’s inauguration was the biggest in history: period.” Remember this bullshit?
The truth is that after his first two years pretending to be our president, not a single member of his cabinet or advisory staff was qualified. By the time he was removed from office on January 20, 2021, the number of vacancies in the West Wing had become so numerous there were echoes inside of the building.
Personally, I am grateful that we have a real American president sitting behind the Resolute Desk today.
