When President Obama took office in January of 2009 he basically had all his top cabinet positions confirmed and most of the people who were on the next rung down appointed and in place.
Flash ahead to 2017 and we find that Donald Drumpf still hasn't got most of his cabinet members confirmed, (any?) and almost nobody in the second tier of these departments appointed ..........., which means the U.S. Government could come to a halt as early as Friday afternoon.
Donald Trump’s Cabinet picks have been battered by revelations of questionable stock trades and potentially undocumented employees. They’ve undergone rocky confirmation hearings and faced criticism from Democrats that they’re unfit to lead a major federal agency.
Now the American people have been warned what sort of a clusterfuck this administration is going to be and this is just the beginning of what could be the most dysfunctional and disastrous government since the exploits of Captain Wrongway Peachfuzz!President-elect Donald Trump has asked 50 government employees in critical posts to stay on in his administration, including Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work and Brett McGurk, the U.S. envoy for countering Islamic State, a spokesman said on Thursday.Drug Enforcement Administration Administrator Chuck Rosenberg, National Counterterrorism Center Director Nick Rasmussen, Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Tom Shannon and Adam Szubin, acting under secretary for terrorism and financial intelligence for the Treasury Department are also among them, Trump spokesman Sean Spicer said at a news briefing.
