9. Yes, as far as that's concerned, he's probably the least destructive appointment Trump made.

He's not really doing anything, other than being a full time pundit on Fox News, who is now on the taxpayer's dime, rather than Rupert Murdoch's dime.

But at least he's not actively working to DESTROY the agency he's allegedly there to run. That's more than I can say for the people who are running the EPA, HSS, the Department of Energy, the Treasury, the Department of Education etc.

8. Ironically, the only 'affirmative action' hiring going on these days is by Republicans appointing

appointing token African Americans to political jobs. How else can you explain a black neurosurgeon in charge of HUD, where his job is, apparently, just to give interviews where he tells poor people to suck it up.
