If he picked any politician the left would complain he's keeping the establishment.
If he picked anyone with business or similar experience the left would complain he's playing favorites/conflict of interest/pay to play.

Ok, we know Exxon funded climate change denial. How is that not evidence of wrongdoing if you claim to believe the science?
Yes, climate change anti science was funded by Exxon under Tillerson's leadership. How is it not relevant, your point was that people criticize these people because of envy, my point is these people are greedy MFers who do not operate on notions of meritocracy (the idea of capitalism), or do not operate in the public good (anti science and foreign wars).
