Who in their right mind would make such an asinine decision and say yes?

We know Pocahontas became a millionaire during her tenure as a senator and has no qualms about fleecing monies from people, yet she has the balls to demand a commitment like that from that individual?? 

Takes a fool to ask that question and a fool to answer in the affirmative.

It doesn't matter who's asking the hard questions, she's just trying to make Washington a little less swampy.  In my book, that's a good thing.  

No she wasn't.  She was simply asking whether he stopped beating his wife yet.

Now if she's also a total disaster at doing the job, she'll fit right in with this administration.

Trump Rewards Conspiracy Theorist With Key National Security Job

John Ratcliffe has fueled the right’s Deep State paranoia.

John Ratcliffe questions former special counsel Robert Mueller.Andrew Harnik/AP

In what can hardly be considered a surprise, Donald Trump has selected as his number-one intelligence official an ardent Trump defender who has little experience in the intelligence field and who misrepresented his role in an important anti-terrorism case. But Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas), who Trump has chosen to be the director of national intelligence, also will be at odds with the intelligence community. Ratcliffe has promoted the view that the FBI, in its investigation of the Trump-Russia scandal, has been a “terror,” and he has fueled the conspiracy theories of the paranoid right that claim a supposed Deep State cabal cooked up the Russia investigation in an effort to keep Trump out of the White House and thwart his presidency.

Trump’s New Pick for UN Ambassador was ‘Gold-Level Member’ at the Trump International Hotel

"The United States Senate on Wednesday confirmed Kelly Knight Craft as the next United States ambassador to the United Nations. Craft who’s married to coal magnate Joseph Craft, will fill the role formerly vacated by Nikki Haley in 2018. After being nominated to the position in February, Craft was confirmed on a vote of 56-34, despite concerns that in her previous role as the US ambassador to Canada, she spent far too many days absent from her post in Ottawa and far too many nights as a paying guest at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC."

For Trump and his cronies, draining the swamp means ousting experts

"In June, the Agriculture Department informed employees at the ERS and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, which manages $1.7 billion in scientific funding, that they were moving to "the Kansas City Region," precise location TBD. Employees had 30 days to decide whether to uproot their families or lose their jobs.

As of July 26, only 116 employees agreed to relocate, according to a USDA spokesperson. That's about 20 percent of those initially asked. Representatives from the employees' union, the American Federation of Government Employees, told me they expect even fewer to ultimately move, since some employees who said they'd relocate are searching for other opportunities.

The Trump administration is celebrating."
