    I like most of the names predicted by the media as cabinet appointments except for a few.

    In my case, it's Sarah Palin and Corey Lewandowski.

    I predict some Hillary supporters who will object to all the current suggestions for the cabinet but, in general, give a short list of the people you don't want to see in Trump's cabinet.

    I suspect his cabinet won't be too crazy. The White House is where the mayhem is going to happen.

    Be happy, your dream is true. The POTUS is not a member of the cabinet.

    John Bolton. I still think the Senate would not confirm him. Not sure, so.. he's on my list of I-hope-nots. Anyway imo if he were put up as SoS then I want to go to some other galaxy in a different simulation of the universe.

    Rudy Giuliani. I read he was floated as Attorney General. Maybe a long time ago. Now he's over the edge.

    Mike Pence should pick all the WH advisors. To the extent he doesn't, the sooner it will be his turn to do it anyway, these guys around Trump never heard of a Constitution they didn't half-write themselves.

    I'd agree on Bolton and Giuliani. I heard Carson was possible for Education or HHS, and Arpaio (the outgoing AZ Sheriff) was possible for Homeland Security. Certainly not a fan of those either...

    I hope Trump does not add to his cabinet any invade 'em/invite 'em neocons looking for another missionary war or neoliberals blathering arcane theories about free trade and borderless worlds.

    Pretty much everyone he's rumored to be considering. Ebel, Giuliani, Gingrich, Christie, Palin, etc.

    It's gonna be a rough 4 years!

    Donald Trump ran on the promise of keeping Washington "insiders" away from the power to corrupt government. If he has too many "insiders" in his cabinet, he'll be backing down on one of his promises. Now, whether or not his most ardent supporters will care (or notice) is something else. But I think Trump needs to be very careful about even the appearance of giving in to the Washington elite he campaigned so hard against.

    With that said, he also needs to be careful about some of these Breitbart people too. Regardless of where I personally fall on the scale of left or right, some of the Breitbart people are overtly anti-Semitic, anti-Black and anti-gay.

    While much of America may be fiscally conservative, I think majority don't believe in bigotry.

    He'll need a few to navigate the political waters, that said I hope he rips the massive bureaucracy to shreds.

    I wouldn't want to see an anti-semit... ah it happened.

    https://twitter.com/MarkHarrisNYC/status/797918400995409920

    Trump has put an anti-semite in as chief of staff.

    I begin to wonder about the state of the US and its sectors view Judaism. Because, we were told Trump can't be anti-semitic because his daughter married a Jewish man, but then we see people at Trump rallies shouting "Jew S A" ( https://www.washingtonpost.com/poli...e73622-9ee2-11e6-8832-23a007c77bb4_story.html ). We don't see any condemnation from Trump about this, though he does have time for criticising publications for not supporting him on 3 occasions ( https://twitter.com/igorvolsky/status/797902943014027264) .

    I find it funny because anecdotally it seems the US is torn between supporting Israel or Palestine, and most side with Israel. Considering Trump is pretty down on Muslims and this chap is down on Jews, I guess the only religion left to thrive is Christianity.

    But seriously though. I wonder how that makes many feel. Maybe they'll also be registered like Muslims too, though this time we could use NFC instead of tattoos.

    So we have establishment Reince Priebus as chief of staff and white nationalist/alt-right Steve Bannon as chief strategist/senior counsel. Priebus won't go over well with the base.

    Hence why Bannon is basically his equal. I think it's safe to say Steve Bannon = Valerie Jarrett (aka the most important person in the White House). Scary.

    To the victor belongs the spoils.

    Trump gets to appoint whomever he wants, and I'm happy to let him do just that.

    He better replace all the current hacks. Each and everyone of them.

    From the right, Palin is a good shout. Also I am not a fan of Christie and Giuliani. Typical NY/NJ politicians.
    --- Post Merged, Nov 13, 2016 ---
    Yeah, I forgot to add Gingrich. Guys like him and Cruz, who I loathed the most after Hillary from all the candidates, are the typical do as I say but not as I do hypocrites.

    Now that he's in he doesn't need the base. What are they going to vote democrat next time? Trump is going largely establishment and insider. Gingrich proclaimed it's going to be mainstream. Maybe a token Tea Party post for Palin or Carson.

    I don't want to see Christie, Palin, nor Giuliani on his cabinet.

    Luckily, it's looking less likely that Christie will be around.

    When my Ronnie was POTUS the joke was that the cabinet room seated twelve and slept one.

    He's now a vice chair in transition instead of chair and will be posted in administration, possibly attorney general or some role in administration.

    Transition team will be said to be around his business friends and supposedly even a top GOP lobbyist. Their jobs will last two months, and Christie, Giuliani, and maybe Palin, will have jobs designed to last four years.

    The only one I could stomach is Giuliani but liberals like me won't "like" any of them but it's very clear the main direction is towards mainstream republican like Gingrich professes and that one or two Tea Party posts to Palin and Carson.

    I think, but don't know, that maybe Scott Walker can lead a department. Time will tell.
