Inmates running Trump's Asylum!

We have obtained a list of more than 400 Trump administration 
hires, including dozens of lobbyists and some from far-right media.

While Trump has not moved to fill many jobs that require Senate confirmation, he has quietly installed hundreds of officials to serve as his eyes and ears at every major federal agency -- from the Pentagon to the Department of Interior.
Propublica has obtained a list of more than 400 of such hires, the most complete accounting so far of who Trump has brought into the federal government. The list includes:
1. At least 36 lobbyists, many of whom lobbied in the same areas that are regulated by the agencies they have now joined. (During the campaign, Trump said he would have “no problem” banning lobbyists from his administration, but here they are -- aided by Trump’s weakening of Obama-era ethics rules that modestly limited lobbyists’ role in government.)
At least eight staffers drawn from the rightwing Heritage Foundation.
2. Several former staffers, columnists, and stringers affiliated with Breitbart New, including a WorldNetDaily columnist who has complained about “ethnic cleansing” of white people.
3. A self-described guerrilla warfare expert and reality show contestant whose study of societal collapse inspired him to invent a bow-and-arrow-cum-survivalist multi-tool kit.
4. Dozens of Trump campaign staffers, some of whom graduated from college just last year, and one of whom only recently graduated from high school.
See the list in more detail, below.
They're either ridiculously inexperienced, intensely right-wing or alt-right, or part of the Washington swamp. Yet these are the people Trump is entrusting the day-to-day running of the U.S. government.
What do you think?
