Identifying Dead Weight.

There’s an old adage, “Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.”  The combined prayers and wishes of at least 70% of the country have been laser-focused on freeing us from the malicious mismanagement of long-established policies and critical natural resources by the many inept Trump appointees.  Far from the finest and the smartest people, Trump waded waist deep into the swamp with his coterie, rewarding friends, family, loyalists and business associates, all opportunists, with appointments enabling them to reap personal advantage, abusing their authority and power to manipulate the rules by which the rest of us must live by.  Alas, it seems our collective wish is being fulfilled by Donald, himself, not as an answer to our prayers but as a response to that hidden voice within him, his personal God, and it’s much worse than we expected.

In the past, Trump was quoted as saying, “There are those that are saying it’s one of the finest group of people ever assembled as a Cabinet,” but recently he has been openly complaining to staff that his Cabinet has fallen well short of his expectations and that he wants to rid himself of all the “dead weight.”

After a year in office, having already cut over 43% of his appointees occupying key positions, and on Tuesday after firing Rex Tillerson, the Trumpster hinted that more changes will be coming, saying his ideal Cabinet is in the making. “I’ve gotten to know a lot of people very well over the last year,” Trump told reporters at the White House, “and I’m really at a point where we’re getting very close to having the Cabinet and other things that I want.”

Gone, the 43%, those gullible and naïve expendables, all blinded by opportunism eventually have learned that it’s all about what Trump wants and nothing else.

Watch carefully, because, at this point, anyone accepting a position in the cabinet must by nature be suspect of bad judgment or malicious intent.  A smart person would see the trail of bodies and say to themselves, “I’m not going there.”  But there can be no accounting for ego and hubris.  The ones that say, “that can’t happen to me” are the ones you cannot trust, so look out!  Who would want to leave a solid well-paying job, divesting themselves of their financial interests for a fleeting appointment dependent on the whims of a narcissist liar? No?  You disagree?  Only yesterday, Trump bragged that he lied to Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau while discussing trade imbalance.  Is this the process of a stable mind?  And as a further measure of his loss of contact with reality, he amused himself publicly with thoughts of establishing a “Space Force.”  Ding-a-ling, call the men in white coats!

Yes, we need to cut the dead weight, but trimming the branches of the dead tree is not the answer.  In the coming storm, the tree will topple in the wind under its own weight. Just pray it doesn’t fall on you.  The wiser thing to do is remove the dead tree before the inevitable damage occurs.
