It’s crazy isn’t it? Mattis was fired around the Holiday season and we’re nearly at Memorial Day and there’s still no permanent defense secretary pick or even names that have been considered. We don’t have a functioning executive branch. Trump likes to blame his problems on the investigation impeding him but you know what even Nixon still had a functioning executive branch while he was being investigated during Watergate.

We have a self-declared national emergency, where Trump is using the military and DHS, and both of those cabinet level officials are held by acting officials, because Trump wants to avoid a confirmation battle.

Trump is refusing to follow the rule of law, and McConnell is aiding and abetting because he’s not advancing the Senate powers to advise and consent and demand that acting positions get filled. He’s giving Trump carte blanche to do whatever he damned well pleases.
