Only the Best People

I suppose I'm a late in starting an "Only the Best People" thread after watching the dumpster fire full of clowns appointed to the Trump administration. Here's the latest installment:

Brenda Fitzgerald, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has resigned.

Fitzgerald had been under fire for not divesting some financial holdings and was this week revealed to have invested in tobacco stocks after having been named CDC director.

What is it about Public Service that Repubes simply don’t understand?

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson allowed his son to help organize a “listening tour” in Baltimore last summer despite warnings from department lawyers that doing so risked violating federal ethics rules, according to internal documents and people familiar with the matter.

In the days before the event in late June, career officials and political appointees raised concerns that Carson’s son, local businessman Ben Carson Jr., and daughter-in-law were inviting people with whom they potentially had business dealings, the documents show.

“I expressed my concern that this gave the appearance that the Secretary may be using his position for his son’s private gain,” Linda M. Cruciani, HUD’s deputy general counsel for operations, wrote in a July 6 memo, describing her reaction upon learning of Carson’s Jr.’s involvement from other staff members.

"WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says K.T. McFarland has withdrawn from consideration to be ambassador to Singapore.
Trump issued a statement Friday. He said McFarland served his administration “with distinction” and said Democrats “chose to play politics rather than move forward with a qualified nominee for a critically important post.”

McFarland is a former deputy national security adviser in the Trump administration and former Fox News analyst. She was nominated in May. After the Republican-majority Senate did not act on the nomination by the end of last year, McFarland was re-nominated in January.
McFarland’s nomination was in doubt amid questions about her communications with ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn." TPM

Another unqualified and mud covered Trump sycophant exits stage right while Trump lies his ass off...

Wasn't aware Singapore was critically important and that it takes more than a simple majority to confirm an ambassador.

"The White House plans to withdraw its controversial nominee to head the Council on Environmental Quality, Kathleen Hartnett White, according to two administration officials briefed on the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the decision has not been announced yet.
One of the officials briefed on Hartnett White’s plans said that her nomination had failed to gather momentum even as some of the administration’s other senior environmental policy picks had won approval, with some Senate Republicans raising questions about her expertise." WP

Science denier out of contention.
