Clarence Brown: One of the arguments I heard (self-described) "moderate" Republicans make for supporting Trump was that he wasn't very smart, but he'd hire the best people.

But good people won't work for him. Speer pointed that out as a major problem with Hitler. Hitler's emphasis on loyalty, his need to be a universal genius, his faith in himself-all those characteristics meant that he didn't want people around him who were smarter than he, better informed, or threatening to his ego in any way. As Speer said, Hitler's "methods of necessity led to weak collaborators for his arbitrary method of choice brought no men with proper qualifications to the right positions" and the "inferiority" of his subordinates ensured that their subordinates would also be "inferior" (Overy 226). Speer draws the conclusion that "A system which makes the selection of the leading personalities dependent solely on the judgment, arbitrary discretion, and whims of the dictators inevitably leads to such results" (Overy 226).

I'd hate to see what Mulvaney thinks "doing poorly" looks like.

Isn't there a trump Escorts in China?

There was one in New York.  And of course he didn't pay them.​del_Management

Casinos I get, the mobs involved, but do we really need someone that can't run a teen escort service overseeing the country?
