Who's trained for exactly jack crap her entire life. How her position in this administration is justified and normalized is beyond me. IOKIYAR. Can you imagine if President Hillary Clinton had used Chelsea in a role like this? The outrage on Fox would be endless, and Chelsea is actually qualified.

Time to set up some camps. Won’t cost much. We already have the cages, the guns, the green bologna left over from Arpaio’s prison, Fox News for updates, we’re set! Yup...trained and retrained. Over and over again. Let’s do it!

than a restaurant menu may I suggest John Henry Cardinal Newman's "The Idea of a University" wherein he explains the difference between a trained man and an educated man. A trained man can do one job well, whereas the educated man can adapt to changing landscapes. If the trained man's skills are obsolete then his ability to earn a living is diminished.
Trump's political success is in appealing to the "poorly educated" who he claims to love but really exploits by lying about obsolete jobs returning. That they haven't been educated makes them vulnerable to Trump's mendacious musings.
The word education goes back to the ancient Greeks meaning to open the mind. Minds like parachutes work best when opened.
