When are you people ever going to get a grip and
realize the election is over, and Hillary lost

When people start denying ignorance and actually use factual information. The election has been over for a month and people still are posting fake anti-left things.

Let see: Reince Preibus, a long term politician, head of the RNC, and now going for Chief of Staff.
He has nominated Steven Mnuchin, for Treasury secretary. He used to work for Goldman Sachs, and was involved in the housing bubble.

Secretary of Defense, James Mattis. Used to be a general in the US Marine corp. He was involved with the Theranos, and a scandal that came from it.

Attorney General pic: Sen. Jeff Sessions. The last time he was nominated for a federal positions, there was a few things in his past, that gave him a bad light and a racist appearance.

Commerce secretary: Wilbur Ross: A billionaire investor. Notable for owning a mine, running it unsafely, causing the deaths of 12 miners, and has been fighting it ever since that time.

Labor Secretary: Andy Puzder: CEO of CKE Restaurants, who wants to move towards more automation in industry, that would end up cutting jobs.

Health and Human Services: Rep. Tom Price, Critic of Obamacare, and would like to see it repealed, but not replaced.

Housing and Urban Development: Ben Carson. The man claimed to never had government assistance, however, grew up with food stamps, public assistance and living in section 8 housing.

Transportation: Elaine Chao: She has served in that position before. Wife of Mitch McConnell. Funny how one report gets suppressed and the man’s wife gets picked for a cabinet position.

Education: Betsy DeVos: Billionaire,, advocating school voucher program.

Homeland Security: John Kelly: Marine General.

EPA: Scott Pruitt: Oklahoma Attorney General, who is currently suing the EPA and does not like that organization at all.

Small Business Administration: Linda McMahon: Professional wrestling executive and former politician for the republican party.

Chief Strategist: Steve Bannon:
National Security adviser: Gen. Mike Flynn
Deputy national Security adviser: K.T. McFarland: Fox News, served in that position once before.
White House Counsel: Donal McGahn: Former chairman of the Federal Election Commission
Director of the CIA: Mike Pompeo, rep from Kansas

Many of these people have long ties with Politics, many have no clue about the position they will seek to be sitting in and thus unqualified. And there are many who are in direct odds with the position or agencies that they are being asked to take control over.

So if he is draining the swamp or not wanting lobbyists in the federal government why is he nominating or hiring them?

The voters in Elliott county are not racist, they voted for Obama twice.
The funny thing was, it was not even close. All those democrats abandoned Hillary and the democratic party in unprecedented numbers.

Thats what sucks about the two party system. They didn't 'abandon' Hillary or the DNC, they voted for the 'other' party, just like the time before and the time before that.

Theres only one gubment, one giant bureaucracy which never changes. They keep fooling everyone into voting for 'difference' or 'change' but its always the same result. The same game, only the names change.

What was my question? You said he wasn't draining the swamp of lobbyists. I asked you to list lobbyists. You instead gave me a list of no lobbyists, but reasons you have not to like said people in the list.

Are you retracting your statement then?

Edit: It appears you don't know what a lobbyist is...

I can sum the Trump victory up in 4 words, HE IS NOT CLINTON!

Obviously, truth wasn't Trump's burden. It was Hillary's. Most of the country is used to and accepts the antics of Trump. Most everyone was aware of Trump's hyperbole, and most of them didn't care. It was his underlining sentiment that won the election. Personally, I voted for the sentiment. Hillary represented the opposite sentiment. She's the real bigot. Her idea of helpless minorities is the real racism. She sought to deeply divide our country even further. Don't believe that Trump has and may reunite America? Just look at the OP.

Not all Trump supporters are racist, clearly, but all white supremacists are Trump supporters.

Trump won over Blue Collar America with the false promise of bring jobs back while Clinton assumed she already had their vote and didn't bother to pander to them.

Well Hillary's mentor, Robert Byrd, proves that statement about ALL of them wrong.

And you have no way to know all the white supremacists and who they actually support.

But it was a decent effort.

Psst, this is why you guys lost

What an interesting fact you've posted. So all white supremacists voted for Trump? So what about the California branch of the KKk who endorsed Hilary?

Why are so many trump haters exposing themselves as racist now? Your statement was extremely racist.

Personally, I'd say Trump won because he lied.

He catered to every audience telling them what they wanted to hear.

Even though he actually said nothing - - - they believed him because they wanted to.

He won because your ilk pushed a unlelectable candiate.

He won because your ilk have pushed liberal mumbo jumbo to far and to fast.

Here is another interesting point of view from a disappointed dem supporter :

So you think that having multiple ex military on the staff is not going to influence the President in policy in favor of a military to get the US into more wars? Or having various people who hate the various agencies in charge of them is not going to end badly for all of us? Many of the choices the man has made, have special interest, thus are lobbyists in positions of authority.

He stated he was going to drain the swamp, yet instead of bringing in people who have no connection to lobbyists or politicians, he is doing the exact opposite oi such. Don't you think that having 3 people from the fossil fuel industry sitting in cabinet positions is going to be a problem since all of them have had run ins with say the EPA, and one is slatted to be in charge of the EPA? When you work in the energy sector, at higher levels, they tend to know each other, and tend to talk to each other.

Exxon alone paid over 8 million to the lobbyists that represent them in congress.

And the coal mine owner, he too pays lobbyists.

All of his picks, have connections to the various industries or politicians that they are well connected with. Even the generals are well connected with various industries to try to get contracts for those companies. Not putting in lobbyists, the man is choosing from them very carefully and wanting them in positions of power.

Don't you understand that IS draining the swamp? Those organizations are what people who voted for trump rail against. Apparently the denizens of the swamp don't recognize their home is being referred to as a swamp.

I posted that on my FB page a few weeks ago.

A few of my Liberal friends wrote it off as "She was never a Liberal" and "This is obviously a Trumpette plant playing a role"

SMH, I've said it before, these people are like toddlers. They stick their fingers in their ears and scream "Lalalalalalalala!" so they don't have to hear something they don't want to.

Some of them are getting it. But much like 3rd wave feminists, we also have 4th and 5th wave Liberals. They are programmed, and refuse to be open minded about anything. They truly and fully believe in their own superiority of thought, and action. They don't see that they have become a sad characterization of what Liberals used to be. I'd even go so far as to say they are not Liberals at all, and have in fact become the fascists they rail against.

Her response is most interesting because 2 months ago in a video she totally denounced Trump and was pro Hillary.

After the election her tune has changed, it isn't Pro-Trump, but it's that the democrats polices have let Americans down and because they were in power, all that vigilance that was shown by them during the Bush years disappeared.

And she welcomed them all back to the resistance at the end.

What I find most interesting in her statement, is the collection of forgotten Obama/dem promises.
If she's obviously not pro-Trump, maybe she happened to share the point of view of many Americans : that this election was about choosing the lesser of two evils.

She supported Obama in 2008 and then Ron Paul in 2012, that is a very large political leap.
I found Ron Paul people divided this election on Trump, after Rand dropped out they sort of all scattered to the wind.
Some went over to Trump as a way to kill the establishment side of the GOP, that had stopped there guy twice, and many times in a disrespectful manner that showed contempt for the primary process. Others the purists would side with Ron in that it had to be never Trump. But Rand split with his Dad this round saying it had to be never Hillary.

I agreed with Rand.
