Could someone on probation head a major Department in the United States?

Isn't Betrayus on Probation as I type?

1. In the new fourth reich, anything is acceptable. Heir Drumpf has eliminated, with the help of the

media, all rules! WE ARE DOOMED!

2. Doesn't SOS need a security clearance?

and can he get one? Can the President give a security clearance to someone who is rejected?

3. It seems like all rules are out with Trump.

That a man who is still on probation for giving classified information to someone not authorized is up for any high government office is literally incredible to me. Secretary of State? Director of National Intelligence? On what planet does Donald Trump live? He is making an absolute mockery of the Cabinet.

5. It has seemed regularly to me that Trump is

pushing his thumb into the eye of this country repeatedly and deliberately with his Cabinet picks. Each and every one seems completely inappropriate to me. And not just mildly, but blatantly inappropriate.

The Petraeus option is so clearly the wrong move that it must be designed to mock the very nature of the positions for which he is being considered. I'm gobsmacked by all of this. It is surrealistic.

8. Agreed - I think it's completely intentional.

I think he's intentionally picking the worst candidate he can come up with for each position. Why is anyone's guess.

I thought that Ben Carson for HUD was going to be the most egregious example, but I think Petraeus tops that.

Edit: the Tom Price pick is probably equally egregious, if not more so.

7. Wow I'm amazed by the Chutzpah here

Given that Trump and Republicans and the Media spent obscene amounts of time trashing Hillary over her private e-mail server (which never actually compromised any classified information) and now they want to nominate somebody who INTENTIONALLY compromised classified information? What in the ever living f**k?
