Report: Trump Might Replace Idiot With Bigger Idiot

As Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin sinks deeper into scandal, the New York Times reports that Trump is considering replacing him with someone who is no more qualified for that job than he is his current job.

WASHINGTON — President Trump, fresh off replacing his secretary of state and C.I.A. director, is considering firing his secretary of veterans affairs and installing Energy Secretary Rick Perry in the post, according to two people close to the White House.

Mr. Trump did not make a formal offer to Mr. Perry when the two men met on Monday. But the people said the president has grown impatient with the department’s current secretary, Dr. David Shulkin, and may want to replace him with someone already in his cabinet.

This is not a decision you make because you actually care about delivering health care and services to veterans. This is an insult. Rick Perry may have served in the Air Force many years ago but, look, the man is dumber than a bag of hammers.

If Perry accepts the job, the Times reports that Perry's possible replacements at the Department of Energy includes a shortlist of fellow Texas oil men because that appears to be the extent of Trump's imagination and knowledge of the Energy Department's mission. The Energy Department oversees the nation's nuclear material, weapons, and research programs. It's not a fossil fuel agency. The Interior Department has more control over the latter.

    Could it be malice rather than stupid?

    We’re going to get to the point where he keeps moving the same five people in and out of different Cabinet posts as needed, because there are only five or so people who (a) can stand working for him, (b) haven’t been indicted, (c) haven’t pissed him off, and (d) don’t care that it’ll torpedo their subsequent careers. You’ll notice “(e) are qualified” ain’t on that list.

    I wonder if Donald Trump heard about Rick Perry’s BSc in Animal Science and decided that made Perry qualified to be Secretary of Veterinary Affairs.

    Okay, yes, bad joke, but convince me that’s stupider than Trump’s actual decision-making process. Go ahead, I’ll wait.
