The Apprentice in retrospect

Donald Trump's television career was based entirely on the premise that he was particularly good at hiring people, finding the most qualified talented people and then firing the rest who fell short. That's what The Apprentice was all about. So that makes the shit show that is Trump's cabinet picks all the more ridiculous.

When you cut through the bullshit, the only thing that Donald Trump is really good at is promoting himself. His self-promotion abilities are all the more impressive considering how little of substance he has to promote. That is precisely why there is so much bullshit.
