Oh...that's disconcerting.  But it's not like Trump takes advice (at least not consistently) so why bother even having "advisory councils" anyway?

Will the last White House advisory council to resign please turn out the lights?

How can you ask any advisory council to be the last one to dissolve for a mistake?

What, and leave the administration stumbling around trying to find the switches again?

Just how many advisory councils are there?    And how concerned should I be that everyone sane is abandoning this admin?

It's been pointed out that these are all pretty useless.  But the idea that none of these captains of industry want to be seen in the same building as the President is very unusual.

So, my next question is, did Obama have advisory councils?    I apologize if this was already answered in the article that I did not read :-)

The people who left were appointed under Obama.  And, yes, this is a problem.  Not like cybersecurity regarding infrastructure is at all critical.  :/

Ah, okay.    Yea, that sucks :-(   It all sucks.   There has not been one aspect of this administration that I can support, or was enthusiastic about.    Nothing.

No kidding.  The next admin is going to have their work cut out for them.  It'll be the year 2020 and infrastructure will still be running Cisco 2950s, servers running Fedora 3...

You misunderstand. Narcissists don't have other people advising them.

Ivanka will still be there, along with his two cretin adult sons.  It'll be like the montage in that episode of the Simpsons when Mr. Burns and Smithers run the nuclear plant by themselves until the robot workers rebel.

The panel is tasked with advising the president and the Homeland Security Department on the security of critical U.S. infrastructure and information systems. The council, which was created by former President George W. Bush, can have up to 30 members, who are appointed by the president from the private sector, academia and state and local government.

It sounds like they could offer some valuable advice regardless of whether it was followed or not.

He's all but deserted now...last night Gen Kelly refused to get up on stage with him. Turtle got into a screaming, profanity-laced shouting match with him. Lift Bro is calling him out...

I'd say it's time to impeach him and move on, but I want him to take the GOP down with him.

True but unlike the manufacturing council that dissolved,  NIAC can provide best practices that organization that are not under trump can follow.

"We can confirm that a number of members of the NIAC who had been appointed under the previous administration have submitted their resignation,"

I think there is some kind of misconception going on here.

I'm just spitballin here, I may be wrong, I'm probably wrong. But I feel like people that were appointed  under the Obama administration may just have some issues and struggles with their morals and beliefs.

They might just not want to serve under a President that sides with nazis and white supremacists.

Just a thought.

Window dressing... He might just as well use cardboard cutouts of people sitting around a table.  The amount of advice they supply would be equal to the amount of advice he takes in from the  the hu mon advisory boards.

If tax reform goes as well as dismantling Obamacare, I think we'll see the beginning of the end. McConnell cares about one thing only - his legacy.

The bright side of all these resignations is that finally, FINALLY, there are consequences to Trump's total toxicity.

Most of the panel was still there from Bush, the website shows out of 27 members, only 6 were appointed by Obama.

I might have missed something, but it looks like a bi-partisan panel.
