Am I right when I think that I have noticed since Trump put them

in his cabinet that all the women have just sort of disappeared? I hear nothing anymore about any of them. Devos or however you spell her name is mentioned once in awhile in passing but not much really. When he put those women in my first thought was "token" women to make an attempt to make his female voters feel a little better.

1. DeVos is still trying to find pencils.

There's probably a special glass-ceilinged room for the others where they sit and wait. "I guess they'll call us if they need us...?"

2. Hey, I almost got her name right.

Yes, they are sitting somewhere like pretty little women waiting for "the men" to tell them what to do.

3. Good observation! There is so much happening soooo quickly that I hadn't

given this any thought, but you are right. I don't see much from, or about, any of them...

4. Unfortunately no, they have not disappeared.

DeVos is changing rules on student debt which screws over borrowers facing financial difficulties. She is very much around and doing things, all of them bad.

5. I realize they are around but it seems they are to do their job

quietly and not be noticed ( though it is hard to not notice her ) like the men get a lot of notice. I just see them doing all of that crap in the background just like trump would like. I have a feeling that whatever these women do is going to be bad for us but good for Trump but he will give himself and the other men the credit. I know his is a small thing but I still think the women are just "token" women.

6. It should be pronounced 'Davros'.

So then I'm right about being wrong.

8. OK, on a practical level.....

DeVos, Sec of Education and Elaine Chao, Sec of Transportation. Neither department of the high critical nature like Sec of State (Tillerson), Sec of Defense (Mattis), Attorney General (Sessions). These departments are caught up in the Russian collusion accusations. so are high profile right now. Sec of Health and Human Services(Price) has been getting a lot of exposure because of the Repeal and Replace Obamacare (ACA) efforts in congress.

The other 2 women with cabinet level positions:

Nikki Haley Ambassador to the United Nations

Linda McMahon, Administrator of the Small Business Administration

Not really high profile positions.

Even under Pres Obama you could go months and never hear some of the Cabinet members mentioned. We were fortunate that we had HRC (SoS), Loretta Lynch ((AG) and Katherine Sebelius(HHS) who were all prominently in the news during their tenures.

9. So, in other words Trump purposely put them in those positions.

He wanted women to be unnoticed of course except his daughter.

10. Yes, you're right. He did not put a woman in one of the highly critical cabinet positions.

At least from a National security standpoint. I do think we'll be hearing more from DeVos as time goes by as she tries to implement moving tax payer's funds from public schools to private corps.

11. Linda McMahon was strictly a pay for play appointment

Her and her lovely husband Vince were the biggest donors to his "foundation".

16. DeVos *really* hates her job. Seems the peasants don't have a proper

appreciation for her royal guidance and attentions, and they don't like her. Quell surprise.

Nikki Haley contradicted the boss once when she said NATO was a vital cornerstone of US security and the US will keep all it's promises. Yeah. That's when she disappeared.

I think that's everybody. All 2 of them, yes?
