    out of nowhere!
    Possible Trump responses:

    "We shouldn't have ambassadors to shithole countries like Panama anyway."

    "This is America and the governor of the state of Panama should appoint it's own ambassador."

    "If my wall had been built, this guy wouldn't be getting back into the country anyway!"

    Why is it that you never give actual responses? You just post odd pictures and laugh a lot.

    Spam bots have a similar job.

    Hmmm

    I don't understand you, madam. Is there no limit to your tolerance? Why?

    What is Trump doing you are so grateful over, you can bring yourself to overlook the racist drool constantly hanging from his lips?

    You think Trump is "qualified" to be President?

    Maybe of some 3rd world banana republic. Not of what is supposed to be the greatest Western power...

    Have seen a mass exodus of really qualified people under MM

    And he has not bothered to fill critical roles



    The Washington Post and the Partnership for Public Service, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, have been working together to track the status of 626 top jobs in the executive branch. This includes assistant secretaries, chief financial officers, general counsels, heads of agencies, ambassadors and other leadership positions that experts believe are critical for the federal government to function effectively. These represent about half of the roughly 1,200 positions that require Senate confirmation.

    As of this morning, there is no pending nominee for 245 of the 626 jobs we're tracking. Among them: deputy secretary at Treasury and Commerce, director of the Census, director of ATF, director of the Office on Violence Against Women at Justice and commissioner of the Social Security Administration.

    At Veterans Affairs, no one has been tapped to be the undersecretary for health or benefits. At the Transportation Department, there is not a nominee to be administrator of the Federal Highway Administration, Federal Transit Administration or National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Trump has not submitted nominees to direct the National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service or the U.S. Geological Survey. He has also not picked someone to be assistant secretary of Interior for fish, wildlife and parks.

    The lack of permanence creates uncertainty and makes strategic planning difficult. It also makes it harder to manage career staff, who are less likely to follow orders they disagree with when they realize that their boss is a short-time boss

    fashion, even when I might not agree with certain policies. My instructors made clear that if I believed I could not do that,
    I would be honor bound to resign. That time has come,” Feeley said, according to an excerpt of his resignation letter read to Reuters.

    The above does care the shit out me. I go back to the story several months ago. We have a USN ship hit a barge, or it hit us, I forget, in the Sea of Japan. We have hurt sailors, we have a damaged ship, we have chaos. In large part because Japan had no American ambassador to call or relay information to/from about status, who or what to send for help.
