Trump: The Outsider Goes Inside

The people fell for the DC outsider con.  Trump promised to break the cycle of corruption of the political establishment when elected….so far to me it is looking like the con worked……he won the electoral college and has become the 45th president of the USA.

Now comes the formation of his administration….I have said that it will be very telling to see how and who he picks for the various positions of government.

Since he has zero experience in governing….how will he pick the people to run the country?

It appears that he will go the way of all politicians…..he will go to the Washington insiders……

As Donald Trump finishes his campaign with a promise to break the control of Washington by political insiders, his transition team is preparing to hand his administration over to a cozy clique of corporate lobbyists and Republican power brokers.“Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt political establishment with a new government controlled by you the American people,” Trump says in his closing campaign advertisement, followed by flashing images of K Street, Wall Street, and Goldman Sachs Chief Executive Lloyd Blankfein.But the Trump transition team is a who’s who of influence peddlers, including: energy adviser Michael Catanzaro, a lobbyist for Koch Industries and the Walt Disney Company; adviser Eric Ueland, a Senate Republican staffer who previously lobbied for Goldman Sachs; and Transition General Counsel William Palatucci, an attorney in New Jersey whose lobbying firm represents Aetna and Verizon. Rick Holt, Christine Ciccone, Rich Bagger, and Mike Ferguson are among the other corporate lobbyists helping to manage the transition effort.

That is one promise broken……how many will follow?

In his acceptance speech he said….”I will not let you down”…..if this is fact then it is too late….he already has…..and is not even prez yet.

I will bet that the supporters will make a good “excuse” for this lie…….can anyone say “apologist’?

I will take a much needed break tomorrow….it is Veterans Day and I will be posting nothing but vet posts…..enjoy my friends…..

  1. This is about what I expected. Lack of governing is showing two days into President-elect. Who knows, he might get all these insiders into place and run his Presidency like he ran his campaign: “What Trump says, goes.”

  2. A president has to work with what he has to work with. Everyone should know that he will have to work with the insiders. If you get a lot of outsiders in the mix then you have a Tea Party situation on steroids. You have to pick the brains of those with the most experience and then make judgment calls based on what you find out and what your advisors tell you. And you have to do this in such a manner as to make the power brokers feel like they have done something good for the country and for themselves in the process. This would not be the only presidency in history to change course on some ideas as time goes forward. A president may “want” to change some things but he can only change things to the extent that those who control the agents of change will allow. Obama discovered that principle big time.

    1. I love it…..funny nothing was said when he was running…..but now it is okay to be an insider….I thought that was the way it would shake out….

      Gonna be interesting month or so….

      1. I heard it and he “Was” the outsider before he got elected. Now that he has gotten elected he is not the outsider anymore; he is the insider now and he is still best for the job.

    I’ll say the same about Trump as I did about Bernie; you don’t make a billion dollars by being nice, or, by caring about others…
