First of all, if you don't put "Bridgegate" Christie at Transportation you shouldn't be trusted with cabinet appointments.

Clearly you want Rudy Guliani at Justice - unless you're saving him for SCOTUS.

What - nothing for Gingrich?

Fiorina for Labor is a nice touch, though.

I forogt Guliani. Yes he should be in the mix for something. I thought Christie was Trump's biggest supporter so gave him State Dept. Transp may be better fit for him. Is Newt on board with Donald? From what I've read they don't get along.

Trump finally found a new national security adviser.

Ahhh, but the servant waits, while the McMaster baits.

The new EPA administrator, Scott Pruitt:
“In this environment we live in this country today … it’s a very toxic environment,”


If you're thinking "He sounds concerned about pollution", think again.

He's complaining about the political environment, and all the litigation between the EPA and the companies they regulate.

None of that will matter anymore. The fossil fuel industry will no longer be at odds with the EPA, because Pruitt is their puppet.

Another Trump appointee member lied under oath during his confirmation hearing.

New EPA head told Congress he never used personal email for government business. But it turns out he did.
