Criticism averse January 26, 2017Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
Interesting piece here in Slate by Fred Kaplan on how the Trump Cabinet nomination process was running into some trouble over the last week. Now, as we know the committee voted 11-10 in favour of sending his nomination to a Senate vote and I presume that’s it, he’s over the line.
Given his previous support for TPP it must be – ahem – interesting at the White House. And one can only wonder at the influence he has on President Trump.
But this is particularly telling about the likely composition of that Cabinet and an interesting dynamic at work.
Very wealthy corporate chiefs—a description that matches most of Trump’s Cabinet picks—tend to surround themselves with yes-men and aren’t accustomed to attacks in the mass media (or anyplace else).
