Cartoonists On Scaramucci's Ousting After 10-Day White House Tenure
The GoComics Team
August 01, 2017
It would appear that Mr. Ariail is trying to be “fair & balanced” in his electoral criticism. the truth is that, once a person has made it to the Senate Confirmation process, the only recent “opposition” to ANY of Donnie’s picks has come from within his own party. It was Senator Paul who was threatening to block Pompeo’s nomination process.
If this cartoon is referencing Senator Tester’s revelations against Admiral Ronny L. Jackson’s nomination to head the Veterans Administration, I acknowledge that it was poorly handled, but the Admiral had no business being nominated for such a position in the first place – he was totally unqualified for the position, in the first place.
Senator Tester was simply doing something that the White House should have done before placing the Admiral’s name in contention – this is what’s called “vetting” the candidate. The White House evidently believes the ONLY “vetting” ANYONE needs is an affirmative answer to the question, “Does Donnie LIKE the nominee?”
