13. a couple of the most egregious will get cut, for the sake of perceived GOP "independence"

Trump played this right, though: get a batch of the most extreme toxic nominees possible, let the outrage focus on a handful of the worst of the lot, replace them with highly-visible "compromise" nominees. meanwhile, most of the assholes fly through confirmation under the radar. 3 months from now, Trump goes before his supporters and brags about how he made a Great Deal and got 90% of what he asked for.

so who do you want to be sacrificed to our selective outrage?
Tillerson State
Sessions AG
Zinke Interior
Price HHS
DeVos Education
Chao Transportation
Mattis Defense
Carson HUD
Pompeo CIA
Mnuchin Treasury
Flynn NSA
