And then there's this:

A National Park Service (NPS) official accused of helping Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder improperly cut down trees has been named the acting director of the agency.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announced the promotion of Deputy Director Dan Smith on Wednesday...

A 2006 report by Interior’s inspector general (IG) concluded that Smith, then a high-ranking adviser to NPS Director Fran Mainella, repeatedly pressured lower-level officials to allow Snyder to cut down trees separating his Maryland mansion from the Potomac River...

“Smith inappropriately used his position to apply pressure and circumvent NPS procedures, on Snyder’s behalf, through his personal connections with park officials and Mr. Snyder and his representatives,” the IG concluded.

He sounds like a perfect steward of the National Park Service in a Trump administration.

Then, of course we have the story of the rookie 24 year old (who inflated his own resume numerous times to include false claims of a Masters Degree) who was appointed to a senior position in the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy.

Only the best people, indeed.
As long as the roots are not severed, all will be well in the garden.
