Frage | Wann dreht eigentlich jemand eine Komödie über Trump und seine Administration?


Da dürfte doch wirklich genug passender Stoff bei angefallen sein.

You knew it was true. Here are some details.

Trump left behind a damaged government. Here’s what Biden faces as he rebuilds it.


[What kinds of things did Trump do to cripple the government? Short story: Simply fire, move, or mistreat all its most important people. Behaviors that are right up Trump's alley.]

More than 18 months after the Agriculture Department relocated two research agencies from Washington to Kansas City, Mo., prompting a major exodus from both divisions, the agencies are still struggling to regain their strength.

[Yeah, that's a good tactic: Moving things from one city another is incredibly disruptive. In addition to all the physical changes, it also mixes up personnel, since some of the most experienced and useful people will simply not make the move.]

Even after a round of hiring in the past year, the permanent staff of the Economic Research Service is down 33 percent from where it was near the end of the Obama administration, and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture workforce has declined 34 percent. According to USDA, they have 115 and 130 job vacancies, respectively.

“We lost some of the nation’s best economists and agricultural scientists in the previous administration,” USDA spokesman Matt Herrick said in an email. “It will take time for the new administration to rebuild USDA’s scientific and research agencies and restore their confidence and morale.”

The problems at the Agriculture Department are reflected across the government. A few weeks after taking office, Biden and his team are confronted with numerous challenges, including smoothing over chaotic operations, boosting flagging morale and staffing up agencies that dwindled. To achieve their policy goals, they must move quickly to communicate a sense of mission, build expertise, improve performance, assure stability and regain public confidence, analysts say.

... “You had a president who went to war with his own workforce,” Stier added. “It’s not like you flip a switch and the loss of expertise and harm to morale reverse themselves.”

Looking across the agencies, Stier and other experts on the federal government see symptoms of the damaged bureaucracy: Key jobs are unfilled, talent has departed, departments were politicized, and morale was harmed. Civil servants have hunkered in a defensive crouch as Trump and his allies demanded political loyalty, tested their professionalism and called them the intransigent “deep state.”

[So in other words, Trump just did to the Federal government what he has done to every employee of every business he has ever owned.]

“The more time I spend in DC at the start of this Administration, the more I see what the career civil servants were forced to endure these last 4 years,” Andy Slavitt, a senior adviser for Biden’s coronavirus response, wrote on Twitter recently, praising the “quiet heroism” of the federal workforce.

... Good-government groups have advised the new administration to consider launching a broad effort to rehire civil servants who left or were forced out during the past four years, particularly those with hard-to-replace expertise in their fields.

‘The perfect target’: Russia cultivated Trump as asset for 40 years – ex-KGB spy | Donald Trump | The Guardian

Donald Trump was cultivated as a Russian asset over 40 years and proved so willing to parrot anti-western propaganda that there were celebrations in Moscow, a former KGB spy has told the Guardian.

Most #stupid #Trump moments out of 4 years.
 
Diejenigen, die das #Kapitol gestürmt haben, wurden auf #NoFlyLists gesetzt. Das geht jetzt an Flughäfen und in Flugzeugen ab:

"They called my a terrorist!"
Willkommen in der Realität, Junge.

This happens twice and on the 3rd time reception asks, “Why do you keep asking me the same question?” She replies, “I just love hearing your answer!”

I'm a little perplexed, I must say, that he didn't declare martial law in his last speech.

#Trump verkauft Begnadigungen für 2 Millionen Doller!?
Make America cheap again.
 
Eines vorweg, ich finde es gut das die Individuen die das #Kapitol gestürmt haben jetzt verhaftet werden.

Aber ich denke hin und wieder die sind auch nur Opfer von #Trump und anderen #Rechten, sie wurden belogen und haben aus dem Lügen fatale Schlüsse gezogen und darauf basierend haben sie gehandelt.

Ich finde es spannend, wie in einer Welt, in der man den Zugang zu allen Informationen in der Hosentasche trägt, so dumm handeln kann.

Stört euch das auch so, wie sich jetzt alle an dem Trump abarbeiten?

Ich krieg da Würgreiz.

Seit Jahren marodiert der herum und trampelt alles platt, und jetzt merken die alle, dass das ein unseriöser Hochstapler mit Hang zum Dauerlügen ist?

Nee, Leute, sorry, aber jetzt ist es zu spät. Jetzt beschmutzt ihr eher euch selbst als den Trump. Denn jetzt beweist ihr, dass eure Moral nur gegen Schwächere gilt. Leute, die nur gegen Schwächere kämpfen, und Ethik und Moral nur anwenden, wenn sie selbst dadurch kein Risiko tragen, an denen bin ich nicht interessiert.

Trotzdem kann ich bei Meldungen wie dieser hier eine gewisse Schadenfreude nicht leugnen. Trumps Außenminister Pompeo musste angeblich seine Europareise absagen, weil niemand dort mit ihm reden wollte.

Das hätte man aber schon deutlich früher machen können, ja machen müssen. Nur wie denn, wenn es sich 80% unserer Eliten im Arsch der USA bequem gemacht haben?

Trump is batshit crazy. This is Pence's chance to acknowledge it and distance himself from it.

But he won't. Why not? What is his calculus?

House votes to officially call on Pence to remove Trump by invoking 25th Amendment, rebuffing the vice president’s objections


The Democratic-led House voted late Tuesday to officially call on Vice President Pence to remove President Trump by invoking the 25th Amendment, rebuffing the vice president’s objections. In a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Pence had urged Congress “to avoid actions that would further divide and inflame the passions of the moment.” The House proceeded with the vote and is on course to consider impeaching Trump on Wednesday on one charge, “incitement of insurrection,” days after a pro-Trump mob attacked the Capitol.

[What have you got to lose, Mikey, if your murderous boss is declared incompetent? What have you got to gain if he's not?]
