The White House is discussing replacements for homeland security chief Kirstjen Nielsen

Source: Quartz

The White House is discussing possible replacements for Department of Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, because Donald Trump is unhappy with how she is running the massive agency tasked with keeping the US safe, according to two people briefed on the situation.

Names being discussed inside the White House include Tom Cotton, the senator from Arkansas, energy secretary Rick Perry, and Thomas Homan, the retiring head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, one of these people said. Cotton and Perry were also considered for the position previously.

Spokesmen for the three men and DHS had no comment.

1. Apparently she isn't awful enough for Spanky.

Tom Cotton? Rick Perry? God help us. Maybe Perry would actually be better because he's just stupid; Cotton is downright evil.

4. "Cotton is downright evil."

Agreed, but Homan may very well be even worse than Cotton, which is why I'm putting my money (2 cents) on Homan for the job appointment.

17. No! We want Cotton....

so that when he fails as well, he'll carry forever the stain of Trumpism's spew all over himself. Further, he'll no longer be a Senator.

2. Seems trump is getting more hard core wing nuts to run the country.

My guess is he is looking for people who will gut departments and give him more money.

It will take centuries to recover from this night mare.

It's actually bigger than this. There's now a fourth column on the wall directly behind her.

8. I have a feeling the Ethics Chief is going to be replaced soon

since he allowed the moron's financial statements about "payments to the porn star" to be released to the public.

10. Trump cannot stand not being obeyed to an absolute T

by a woman.

She's no f*cking brave hero by any means, more of a moral monster like John Kelly, but her failure to give Trump absolutely everything the petulant man-baby bigot wants is a firing offense when you're a woman.

12. If tRump could resurrect Hitler, Saddam Hussein or....

Muammar Gaddafi, they would be top picks in his world.

Just how brutal and repressive is this bunch of criminals going to be allowed to become before they're taken down? Yesterday is not soon enough.
