Could Trump and the mrs look any less happy?? (pic)


Trump just fired the the head of the National Nuclear Security Administration and his deputy

as of noon January 20th, the NNSA won’t have appointed leadership – which means that, as of noon January 20th, NNSA will be hamstrung. The career civil servants and scientists (that is, people hired rather than appointed) will continue doing their job, but they won’t have an advocate to secure a budget from Congress and they won’t be able to tackle any new directives because:

the legislation authorizing the NNSA specifically prohibits non-NNSA officials from managing NNSA employees—agency staffers are only allowed to take orders from Klotz and Creedon or their (nonexistent) replacements.

Given Trump’s bombastic and erratic statements regarding the US nuclear arsenal, this situation should concern everyone.

It is not, as is so commonly said right now, normal.

Trump's EPA Pick Hasn't "Looked at the Scientific Research" on Lead Poisoning

Donald Trump's pick to head the Environmental Protection Agency acknowledged Wednesday that he isn't familiar with basic science on the health effects of lead. At his confirmation hearing, Scott Pruitt was asked by Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md) whether he believes there is any safe level of lead in the human body. "That's something I have not reviewed nor know about," Pruitt responded. He went on to say that he would be "very concerned about any level of lead" in drinking water or human consumption but added that he had "not looked at the scientific research on that."

No surprise really....

I feel sorry for the long term staffers who have to work with a no nothing. It is actually difficult.

I have had more than one boss who not only had no grasp of the details of the job, but did not care about doing any work.
Looking food over doing good.
Really a pain in the ass to be around.

This Moth With a Golden Head and Small Genitals Was Named After Trump

This centimeter-wide moth was identified by evolutionary biologist and lepidopterist Vazrick Nazari, who announced the find in a paper published Tuesday in the open-access journal ZooKeys. Nazari settled on the name N. donaldtrumpi because the silky yellow-white scales these moths develop on their heads in adulthood reminded him of the President-elect’s signature hairdo.

The moth is native to North America, specifically California and Baja Mexico (Trump’s proposed border wall won’t stop this flyer’s migration).

By meticulously examining specimens of the moth and its close relatives, Nazari was able to catalogue its unique anatomy, including its male genitalia, which is “comparatively smaller” than the moth’s close relative Neopalpa neonata, according to the study.
