If you want a crew for your ship, you want to make sure it is not listing at the dock. Your ship, Mr. President, is foundering. And the tide is going out.

Here's Trump navigating the Stairs of Justice:

There is no amount of money anyone could pay me to convince me to take a job in this administration. I think there's a lot of people who feel the same way.

They're forgetting that there are other signs beside the "help wanted" sign.

It's not fair to compare Trump's hiring process with other presidents. Sure, it may be going a bit slower but he's getting the BEST people and that takes time.
 
2017-06-18 08:40:56 AM  
Considering Trump's practice of blaming everyone but himself for things that he does, it's not really surprising that people are avoiding working for him.  There's no "benefit package" big enough to wipe the stain of working for an administration that does that shiat.

Another problem this administration will be expected is that they have no know policies or plans.

"We'd like you to run our department of [whatever|"

"What are your plans for this department?"

"No idea."

"Why hire me?"

"We're still trying to figure that out."

"I have people knocking down my door to talk to the presidential personnel office," said White House press secretary Sean Spicer. "There is a huge demand to join this administration."

That settles it. Nobody is knocking at Spicer's door and there is no demand to join this administration.

Straight from the Snekretary's mouth.

The whole administration is a toxic working environment. It's poorly managed, there's no loyalty from upper management and no definable goals. Added to that the administration is historically disliked(something liable to rub off an anybody working with them) and the smart money says that indictments are going to be handed out any day now.

"For Cabinet posts, the median wait between nomination and Senate vote for Trump was 25 days, according to data collected by The Post. By contrast, Obama's nominees faced a median wait of two days, George W. Bush had a median wait of zero days and Bill Clinton had a median wait of one day."

That's kind of weird. I mean it's not like the Dems hold the Senate so what's with a delay like that?

Also, no sane and serious person would want to work for this administration, which explains a lot about the ones who do.

I hear Scott Baio is looking for a gig

/and what's Gary Busey up to?

Even if you're such a moral vampire that you'd want a position, is there any guarantee you'd actually get paid?

Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke, who was being considered for an assistant secretary position at the Department of Homeland Security, was the latest to withdraw his name from consideration on Saturday

When even the craziest of the crazed says "No, thanks, that's too much crazy", you may have gone too far.

Better luck next time, GOP.

I have a feeling a lot of these jokers think getting too close to ol' orange julius could lead to THEM getting investigated

/and they sure as hell don't want that

I don't think Clarke was ever offered. He's actually more insane than the people in the White House.

The only ones working for him are already dirty.

Looks like we need some Mexicans to come in and do the jobs that Americans don't want.

The Director of the US Mint is still open. Nominate me, Mr Trump. I'll put your face on a coin.

A coin. Singular.

The Don already fired him in the apprentice.  Busey is too good for ol 2 scoops.

A sign that says "Help! Help!" while technically a "Help Wanted" sign is maybe not the best way to attract talent to hitch their fates to your own.

You take the job, leak some info, then claim you were taking Trump down from the inside, the front lines, as it were.

Come out smelling like.... Axe body spray.

  Perfect!  Also need a drawing of Trump shaking his tiny fist at the Constitution-which I bet he has never read.

If you think it's bad now, Two Scoops, wait a couple of months, when certain events have continued to roll forward and yet more ugliness is out in the open in all its glistening, festered glory.  The WH will be kryptonite to sober career professionals.  The snail's pace of forward progress will halt, and possibly even begin to move in reverse, as the Republicans who have always loathed you re-assess the 2018 election and decide the teahadist high water mark has come and gone.

The Flair Sheriffs, 9/11 Drag Queens and You Betcha Grifters will continue to flock to your door, though.

It would take some serious fark you money that I could retire on and a name change to even consider working there.
After working there would you even be able to find another job, Kellyann could since she helped him win.

I have people knocking down my door to talk to the presidential personnel office,

He added... Sure, most of them are from the FBI, and they say things like: We have a warrant to search your records for any mention of these known Russian operatives, but hey; after seeing how great everything is running around here, one or two of those guys might be interested in a career change, you never know.

Or it could be the FBI wanting some documents. Or the US Marshals taking him to Witness Protection. Or Mongoose wanting to ask him questions.
That's creating jobs right there.

My money is the vast majority being hardcore Trumpers whose relevant job experience is purely having gone to a ton of rallies and having fanatical belief in whatever Trump says.

/Frankly I'm shocked they haven't been hired...

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Even if you're such a moral vampire that you'd want a position, is there any guarantee you'd actually get paid?


Probably yes, because the salaries are set by law and paid by the Treasury, not Trump himself.

However, the question most of them are asking themselves is "how far will my salary go towards covering the costs of the legal representation I will inevitably need?"

Donny No Slopes hates a downward trajectory  in his popularity, even more than scrambling up  and out of sand traps in Scotland. He is tweeting how he's more popular than Obama(according to Rasmussen), which is a new level of pathetic.Obama at this point in his Presidency was still well above 50% if I recall correctly. He definitely left office with almost 60%, which Trump has never been close to.

Trump is by far and away the most pathetic person to hold the office,period.

I'd consider taking a job out of curiosity. Front row seats for a trainwreck.

Who would want to work for a backstabbing, irrational, unstable, stupid, megalomaniac with a criminal mind and delusions of grandeur?

Who?
