I don't see any "Write for Forbs, Click Here" buttons on their website. There is some level of exclusivity. That makes it a Forbs piece.
If I let a man shout racial slurs on my front laws for 8 hours and put a disclaimer on a sign that these are his opinions and not the homeowner's, does that mean that I am in the clear?
Trump is big on pulling people from the private sector, and not hiring career politicians. Most of these people held high positions in companies, yes. Should he have hired the janitor instead?It is pretty clear that the best people for the job in the private sector are leaders who probably held high positions at some point.It is also pretty clear that the best people to enact Trump's policies also supported Trump strongly during the campaign.This is a GOOD thing. Those people Trump picked aren't going to backstab the United States Government for a company they aren't even working for. These people are going to lower taxes and enact policies that make it easier for all businesses to operate, not just the one they once worked for. They know first hand the problems with regulations and taxes. That's GREAT.
Trump can't win one way or the other. Same way Obama couldn't.Either he is "not draining the swamp" when he appoints career politicians or executives, or he is appointing incompetent people who don't have enough experience.
how many of trump's emails do you think you're gonna get to read?
I don't think you understand what "drain the swamp" means.
Where live, do the offer adult reading classes?
Suffice to say that it will not be Trump's strongest opponents who will dictate his policy, or the execution thereof.
FE'ism requires suspension of disbelief...
Considering how populist he has been, this may not be strictly true.
Funny, that's how many Trump supporters feel about the displeased liberals who keep trying to go "ha gotcha!!! where's the swamp draining now bucko ??? ?"
He is a populist, but he's also a reactionist. He will make knee-jerk reactions to punish those he feels are wronging him, even if it's just heresy to the God-Emperor.
What IS draining the swamp then? Does anyone have an actual answer or is it just "Remove people I don't like" kind of thing?
I always assumed it was "remove politicians and people whose primary interests are themselves and their job and not the US citizens."
I disagree. Everything we've seen so far has shown that his strongest opponents do dictate his policy, just not in the way they want. He is quick to attack any criticism and that attacking is part of his policy and execution. For example, when Mainstream Media attacked him and what he says, he was quick to attack back, threatening to implement laws restricting what the media can say/print moreso than already exists.When the head of Boeing criticized him, Trump spoke of canceling a $4 Billion deal. And if the head of Boeing were to continue speaking out against Trump, Donald would most certainly cancel any deals he could with the company.He is a populist, but he's also a reactionist. He will make knee-jerk reactions to punish those he feels are wronging him, even if it's just words.

I strongly doubt he has much to gain from pandering to the stereotypical American liberal. So far, he seems to understand this. Here's hoping that won't change.
If he tried, he'd find himself stuck in the same position as many other politicians who try to appease the left: nothing he did would ever be enough, any attempts would be described as more privilege-fed bigotry from a white man, and he'd always be met with new demands. It's a never-ending war for "justice", one that brings no rewards to those fighting it. Right now, in America, being a populist will only really work on right-wingers.
It seems he has made some overtures to at least a more centre-leaning left position like backing off on repealing Obamacare and looking to see what can be salvaged.
Trump details how full of shit his campaign was:http://www.cc.com/video-clips/i9tog6/the-daily-show-with-trevor-noah-trump-lets-the-truth-come-out-post-election?xrs=synd_FBPAGE_20161215_729898039_The%20Daily%20Show_Video%20with%20Link&linkId=32425738
I'm not even mad anymore. This level of trolling is hilarious.
