I think a distinction should be made whereby the reasons for taking advantage of nepotism while holding the position of POTUS is a major concern.

Trump distinguishes himself in this regard in that one of the top reasons he hired his kids to high gov't postings when they should have been hired as mailroom/coffee go-fers at most is that Trump trusts his kids to do whatever he tells them to do, just like every other cabinet boot licker he put in place. AND more to the point he could trust his kids to stay quiet when they execute family business ventures while supposedly conducting "official gov't affairs".

When considering those cabinet picks that're left after the culling by twitter is done, it's pretty damn obvious Trump picks people whose ONLY "redeeming" qualifications are that they do what he says when he says it no questions asked and that they allow themselves to appear faithfully dumber than he is so they won't show him up by mistake. When viewed from that angle, his kids are the perfect hires for the job, where NO INDEPENDENT THINKING IS TOLERATED.

That’s why hiring the head of a family business is the worst choice you could make.

I agree, although if you ask a typical Trumpie about that, well, after four years of hearing them, we're already more than familiar with those multitudes of lame ass knee jerk responses they've had to conjure up in defense of Trump's moronic word and deed.

As an aside, I think I've finally cracked the encrypted language Trump supporters use when they come to his defense: You have to interpret their mouthings using the Onomatopoeia system of language communication and interpretation thereof.

A perfect example that Agent O delivered during her Eulogy speech:

He can take over Andrew Giuliani's (yes, Rudy's son) job of Public Liaison (aka Sports Liaison), which currently pays $95K. The job (if you want to call it one) is to arrange for teams to come to the WH and eat burgers with the Pres. I could do that from my couch, maybe I should apply. Money for nothing and your chicks for free....

Someone's very edgy today.

It's OK champ, I'm sure Trump will run again in 2024.
Concern squad is certainly on edge, odd considering Biden won. I voted for Biden. If Trump runs again in 2024, I feels safe knowing you will be there to challenge him with your little stick.

It's no secret hunter biden has benefited from his last name. It's not even close to putting your kids in the white house with top clearances though, while they are conducting business. I mean the Kushner 666 5th Ave deal with a Qatari sovereign fund whilst he was influential in middle eastern policy is obscene.

At least you acknowledge the nepotism, which stands on its own merits or lack thereof.

People are going to do nice things for people with influential last names. Let me know when Joe Biden and Hunter do a deal while hunter has access to top secret info and runs point on policy making.
