  • Trump Wants His Cabinet Picks To Look Like TV Stars; Internet HUMILIATES Him


    To be considered a visible position on Trump’s administration, Trump not only wants his cabinet picks to do the job, but he wants them to look the part. Can Trump be anymore shallow?

    The self-proclaimed billionaire, who has a wide-range of background in television and running beauty pageant contests, has often commented on the appearance of public figures and business associates. As reported by the Washington Post, Trump’s transition spokesman Jason Miller spoke about how presentation is key when it comes to snagging a spot on Trump’s cabinet:

     “Presentation is very important because you’re representing America not only on the national stage but also the international stage, depending on the position.”

    “You can come with somebody who is very much qualified for the job, but if they don’t look the part, they’re not going anywhere.”

    Evidently, it doesn’t matter what bullshit his administration feeds us, as long as they look like moguls, they’re more than qualified for the position. Trump is known for having his selection process under scrutiny. For instance, when it came time to pick his secretary of state, former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton reportedly didn’t get the position in part because of his distinctive white mustache.

    “Donald was not going to like that mustache,” said an anonymous source to the Post, adding that “I can’t think of anyone that’s really close to Donald that has a beard that he likes.” Back in November, the president-elect raised concern by referring to candidates for cabinet positions as “finalists,”– one would assume that Trump was treating the potential cabinet picks like contestants on his over-hyped reality TV show, “The Apprentice.”

    This certainly questions whether or not Trump is picking government positions for the right reasons. More notably, Trump has claimed that names most mentioned for jobs for his administration are familiar faces to obsessive viewers of cable news. Chief executive of Newsmax Media and lifelong friend of Trump, Chris Muddy weighed in on the topic:

    He likes people who present themselves very well, and he’s very impressed when somebody has a background of being good on television because he thinks it’s a very important medium for public policy.”

    “Don’t forget, he’s a showbiz guy. He was at the pinnacle of showbiz, and he thinks about showbiz. He sees this as a business that relates to the public.”

    Many Americans expressed their thoughts on Trump’s scrutiny. You’ll want to read these:
