Trump’s Fantasy Cabinet: Secretary Of State Gingrich, Attorney General Giuliani, Defense Secretary Flynn

NBC News reports:

Donald Trump’s cabinet-in-waiting is taking shape in the final days of the race, as aides eye a number of Trump loyalists for major posts should he win on Tuesday. Among the names being considered, according to conversations with three campaign advisers who requested anonymity to speak freely: Rudy Giuliani for attorney general, Newt Gingrich for secretary of state, retired Lt. Gen Michael Flynn for defense secretary or national security adviser, Trump finance chairman Steve Mnuchin for Treasury secretary, and Republican National Committee finance chair Lew Eisenberg for commerce secretary.

The conservative Heritage Foundation is also helping vet names, along with some veterans of Romney’s run and the second Bush administration. Running mate Mike Pence is heavily involved and is expected to have a major role in a Trump administration, similar to more active vice presidents like Joe Biden and Al Gore. One telling name under consideration could point to how Trump, who has sounded torn between co-opting the existing GOP and smashing it to bits, might govern as president. Reince Priebus, the current RNC chairman, is under consideration as Trump’s chief of staff. Priebus earned Trump’s trust over the course of the campaign by steadfastly defending him while other top Republicans denounced Trump or shied away from brand.

    Circle jerk material for the Trumpanzees is all this is.

    • clay

      ‘cuz they’re all so opposed to the political elite, like Rudy Giuliani, Newt Gingrich, Republican National Committee finance chair Lew Eisenberg, the Heritage Foundation, and Reince Prepuce.

  • um. ok. good luck with that. and you’d better ask Hannity if he’ll let Newt do that.

  • YakHerder

    Where do you keep your basket of deplorables? In the Cabinet of Deplorables, of course!

  • DumbHairyApe

    Um, what about Chris Christie????

    • CanuckDon

      He’s responsible for the drawbridge over the moat being dug around the White House.

      • DumbHairyApe

        CanuckDon, I like you- I really do!

        • CanuckDon

      He is going to be waiting in the hall, waiting to be called in so he can beg and grovel for a pardon, only to have to wait longer while Pam Bondi gets called in ahead of him.

        All bridges will be closed until further notice so we can increase ferry opportunities and improve local economies.

        • sword

          Not so fanciful…there is talk within the Trump organization about new road construction. Strictly toll roads to maximize profits. And any new major road projects have to maximize 1%er profits.

        • YakHerder

          would that make Christie the “Ferry Godmother?”

    • Jeffrey

      He may be otherwise engaged for the next five to ten.

    • BudClark

      I don’t think even the Orange Strumpet can save Christie at this point, unless he wins, pardons him, and gets him out of Federal prison. Otherwise, I don’t THINK he can serve from behind bars, at least not in THIS country.

          I thought that since ambassador had diplomatic passport, they didn’t need visa… most of their work is done in the embassy which is recognize as foreign land from the host nation.

          • D. J.

            First he’s got to get that appointment.

    • BudClark

      Well, at least THEY’D know how to deal with him.

      Hint: it involves a rope and a trap-door.

      • Paula

        Wouldn’t they just stone him at the wailing wall? I’m not sure how it works. Usually I’d say turn him over to ISIS or Hezbollah.

      • Traxley Launderette

        Seconding your comment, and I’ll also add that we well-read, compassionate, intelligent, and truly patriotic citizens are terrified by what nearly half our neighbors are thinking, saying, and doing.

        I knew there was systemic racism and misogyny out there before the election. I just had no idea how deeply-entrenched and widespread it is.

    • Gustav2

      Hillary is ahead in the national polls…all of them. She has nearly an unassailable firewall of Blue States. For Trump to win is nearly impossible. He has to win ALL the Swing States AND pick up a Blue State.

      She’s got this.

    • boatboy_srq

      Just as a reminder, the US has had the following in recent memory:
      – Attorney General John Ashcroft
      – Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez
      – Attorney General Edwin Meuse
      – Justice Clarence Thomas
      – Justice Samuel Alito
      – Secretary of the Interior James Watt
      – Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld
      – Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao
      – Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham
      – Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton
      – EPA Administrator Christine Todd Whitman

      The list is long and uninspiring. Swamp garbage appears to be the preferred source for the pool of GOTea candidates. The latest batch are just slightly more obviously whack.

      The reason the counties are the size they are in the Midwest is the Northwest Ordinance of 1787. A citizen must be able to walk from the farthest point in the county to the county seat to vote and return home in the same day.

    • Bruno

      You know, while it’s great to see positive early voting results, I just can’t help but feel it leads to some places that may not be real. Dems always lead in many states/districts in early voting as a rule and lose the tally on Election Day. No reason to think that won’t happen again this time. I’m still a little wary of Ralston basically calling NV before tomorrow.

      • GayOldLady

        He’s considered NV’s election guru. I trust him.

        • Bruno

          I’ll trust the final result. I’m not knocking him, he’s likely correct. But turnout tomorrow is not a set or given number, and anything could happen.

      I read an Algernon Blackwood short story this morning that gave me goose bumps, but you’re right. This bit about the Heritage Foundation is much more horrifying!

      • Ninja0980

        Not to mention them wanting the GOP to do a complete blockade of the courts.

      • Ben in Oakland

        What do you think of Blackwood? I discovered him a few years ago, but ultimately decided that he wasn’t all that good.

        • EweTaw

          I think he’s very good. His Van Helsing character doesn’t appeal to me. But he was the Rod Serling of his day on CBC radio. I read The Copse of Woods early this morning and found it both funny and frightening. Considering he wrote everything before 1948 he did a good job of carving out his own niche in horror fiction.

          • Ben in Oakland

            John silence was too much like an uncultured Sherlock, I agree. Always knew everything. I may give him another try. You can download the complete Blackwood for something like a buck on amazon.

          • EweTaw

            Not to be a snob (but I’m going to be) I have “almost” everything he ever published in original hardbound copies, except for a few collection of his short stories that were published in paperback after his death. I only picked up Tongues of Fire and Other Sketches early this morning because I found it out of order on a bookshelf while I was dusting. It’s a 1924 edition and when I bought it a Sam Weller’s used book dept. only the first ten or so pages had been cut with a letter opener (books before 1930 were often printed with recto/verso pages connected by a fold). Anyway, I like most of his stuff. If you ever see one of the few photos taken of Blackwood he always looks like they just dug him up in the cellar. However, the few recordings that exist of him reading his own stories are great. He had a wonderful sonorous Edwardian English accent that makes you feel everything is right in the world — which makes his delivery of reading his stories that much more chilling. 🙂

          • Ben in Oakland

            I feel the same way about my James branch Cabell books. I have a few odd editions of his books– one with a bamboo cover, others with illustrations appearing nowhere else. So I understand.
            I finally tracked down the Cabell society a few years ago. I wanted to offer them my collection, but they said they already had everything. The sad part of it is, after I die, there will be no one to appreciate these books, and they will probably end up getting recycled.
            some years ago, I came across an illuminated– not illustrated, but illuminated, with gold leaf, etc.– edition of James Stephens’s Crock of gold. It was absolutely gorgeous– the kind of book you devote a corner of your living room to. To this day, I regret not buying it.

          • EweTaw

            That would be a fantastic book to have. After much worry and grinding my teeth I started inserting printed explanations about the cool books I’ve collected with instructions on their estimated value and how to sell or auction them off to get the most money for my estate. I’ve got a few amusing first editions with the author’s signature (Naked Lunch, Tropic of Cancer, Cheri (in French), Huckleberry Finn, Never Cry Wolf, 1855 copy of Leaves of Grass, and a bunch more).

            If you have special stuff you want to continue on it’s best to write a will with a directive explaining what needs to be done and who gets what. You also need a Living Trust and a designated Executor you can trust to make sure instructions are followed.

    “we’re going to win Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Iowa, New Hampshire. the women are coming out to vote!”

    • PLAINTOM

      Yes they are ! Bye Dump !

    • Friday

      Trump’s closing vanity-derps are in progress. 🙂

  • 2patricius2

    Ah, yes! The fantasy, nightmare cabinet. Like a Groundhog Day movie – wake up each day to the same living nightmare.

  • Richard

    Might I recommend Tony Perkins as Ambassador to North Korea and Brian Brown as Ambassador to Iraq

  • teeveedub

    Save me, Jeezus.

  • Randy503

    IT will surely be the last all white men cabinet we ever shall see.

  • NO MORE GOP!

    That’s a nightmare scenario.

  • Is Argentina far enough away, do you think?

  • Halloween_Jack

    As if we needed more reasons not to vote for him.

  • Friday

    So, right-wing ideologues, obviously, but also a pack of corrupt rejects. Go figure. It might be pointed out elsewhere that of course he’s still mostly screwing those Christian Righties he promised so much to.

    • The_Wretched

      Pence won’t allow the christian righties to be too screwed.

      • Friday

        One thing’s for sure, none of them will hold back in the slightest from hurting *us* as much as they can anyway.

  • Mark

    But but but but Sarah!!!

  • Stubenville

    Will Sarah Palin be his chief speechwriter?

    • boatboy_srq

      She’s still angling for Secretary of Energy so she can still-baby-drill, shut down solar providers and put coal miners back to work.

  • Soetoro Marx

    Whew! For a second there I thought there might be a danger of having a woman in a Trump cabinet.

  • Hell of a nightmare cabinet there.

    Giuliani as AG: Was once 3rd highest office in the DoJ under Reagan, but in his most high-profile case in the late 1980s, his showboating during arrests in the Kidder-Peabody case led to charges being dropped. No relevant legal experience since the late 80s. Seems blithely unaware that his and Trump’s repeated “she’s guilty” public pronouncements against Clinton would make any actual conviction in a non-kangaroo court all but impossible due to existing prejudice.

    Gingrich for SecState: No relevant House experience — no Foreign Relations committee experience, no diplomatic experience, nada. Nothing even remotely qualifying him for the post. Previously left the House after losing the Speakership due to multiple ethics violations and a bipartisan impression he’d let his Clinton Derangement Syndrome damage the party.

    RETIRED Lt. Gen Flynn for SecDef or NatSec Advisor: Was forced to resign from his DIA posting after just two years for insubordination and refusal to do what his supervisors told him to do. Seen just last year being chummy with Putin in Russia during a celebratory dinner for Russia’s propaganda outlet, Russia Today (this is the same dinner Jill Stein also attended). Zero political experience. Appointing former military as SecDef would be a huge break with the normal practice of ensuring civilian oversight on the military.

    Steve Mnuchin for SecTreas: Literally putting a 1990s Goldman Sachs guy in charge of Treasury. Zero political experience. Spent the last 16 years making movies, with one exception: Engineered buyout of IndyBank, and then failed to do anything but keep settling mortgage-related lawsuits. Chief qualification for Trump is he’s been Donald’s bag-man on money and fundraising for this campaign.

    Lew Eisenberg for Commerce: Chief qualification seems to be he’s a GOP insider and a rich guy. Then again, this is a nothingburger office.

    Reince Priebus for WH Chief of Staff: Every dictator needs an unquestioningly loyal toady. Besides, after this year, what else is he going to do? The party loathes him.

  • bob

    Throw in christie and carl icahn and we’re screwed!

  • Todd Allis

    Let’s vote and make sure it remains Trump’s fantasy!

    • ohbear1957

      Bristol Palin: Sekretary of Sex Educashin!

  • Michael Hampton

    I will say, watching the Frontline profile again last night, I relearned that Roy Cohn was Trump’s attorney at the beginning of his career. Yes. The same Roy Cohn who is basically the antagonist in Angels in America.

  • mikeinrkfd

    Oh great more old out of touch serial adulterer white men.

    Suicide Squad isn’t quite as fun or noble when it’s real. What a horrifying thought.

  • Ganesh’ s stepbrother 7193

    So these would be the agents of “change” Trump would use to implement his vision?

    Newt- hypocrite that’s been in government for 40 years.
    Cheating on and divorcing his wives while pursuing Bill?

    Prebius- I spineless parasite that cannot even following his own “autopsy” needed to repair the GOP?

    Pence- the biggest anti-woman’s rights, bigoted towards gays guy that thinks we should still be in the 1950’s?

    That’s the future of America?

    Maybe in the make believe world of Alex Jones where lizard people run the world and the planet is flat!

    • William

      Guiliani would spend his days trapped in the space between the filing cabinet and the corner.

      • TKW

        And can we just brick up the doorway then?

        • William

          I don’t think anyone would notice. Have the secretary tell visitors that he’s in a meeting, or taking a nap.

  • pgarayt

    Fox, meet hen house.

  • I thought there were only four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
    They’ll need more horses. At least they have plenty of jackasses.

  • KnownDonorDad

    Running mate Mike Pence is heavily involved and is expected to have a major role in a Trump administration,

    For progressives voting for Stein, well, you’re really going to show them, aren’t you?

    • William

      A Trump presidency would be similar to the Reagan/Bush years. Trump would be the public face of the administration, while Pence handles the day to day affairs.

  • Jay Silversmith

    Boy, is his fantasy cabinet going to be in for a rude awakening when they pull their heads out of drumpf’s ass and smell the real world.

  • andrew

    A Trump Administration is a bullet that America MUST dodge.

  • TKW

    Let’s see…he’s planning on only the best people, truly the best:

    – Sec. of Homeland Security: Sarah Palin ’cause she know gunz and can watch Russia from her patio
    – Sec. of Education: Michele Bachman ’cause, know you, God and stuff.
    – Sec of Transporation: Chris Christie ’cause bridges.
    – Sec of Health and Human Services: Do we even need that one?
    – Sec of Commerce: Ivanka Trump, she has her own clothing line you know.
    – Sec. of Energy: Hmmm…can’t we outsource that to Exxon or something?
    – Sec of the Treasury: Don’t worry, Trump will handle that himself.

    Hmmm…who else? Ideas? Where do we put Ben Carson?

    • Randy503

      Surgeon General.

      • Brian Westley

        But he’s actually good at surgery — how about Sec. of Agriculture? He has dynamic new ideas about storing grain…

    Trump’s Fantasy Cabinet: Secretary Of State Gingrich, Attorney General Giuliani, Defense Secretary Flynn

    His fantasy is everyone else’s nightmare.

    Newt for Secretary of State? That’s scarier than Trump winning the presidency.
