Unless you’ve been successfully living under a rock (in which case, congratulations, you’re doing great), you are likely aware that President-elect Donald Trump has been exceptionally busy appointing and nominating some rather controversial figures to his cabinet of advisers.
Among them are Ben Carson (a man who has no government experience) as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Scott Pruitt (a man who has close ties to the fossil fuel industry) as Environmental Protection Agency Administrator, and Stephen K. Bannon (a white nationalist) as Trump’s Chief Strategist — and that’s only naming a few.
Not surprisingly, the internet is reeling in confusion over the selection of people who have little relevant experience to their potential White House roles, and/or seem to be in complete opposition to the agency which they have been appointed to oversee. Everything is topsy-freakin’-turvy!
While many of Trump’s picks will need to be confirmed by the Senate before they are made official, some of the most terrifying prospects (such as Bannon) are already appointed and confirmed.
The only way to make sense of this Bizarro World, as per usual, is to turn to comedy. It’s the only thing that can (somewhat) comfort us now.
