Murder charges, tax-dodging, and more: The GOP’s got a vetting problem

Murder charges, tax-dodging, and more: The GOP’s got a vetting problem

During Donald Trump’s first campaign to ruin everyone’s mental health for nearly a full decade, the multi-indicted meme stock pusher who’s been found liable for sexual abuse famously—or perhaps infamously—claimed he hires “only the best” people.

What he perhaps meant to say is that he hires only the best people and then fires them almost immediately—or keeps them around long enough for them to realize he’s a dangerous affront to democracy. Then again, by Trump’s own admission, a large percentage of his hires turn out to be awful, unqualified losers whom he hired only because they begged him for a job. In other words, he understood he was endangering the country by hiring incompetent people—but as everyone knows, Trump’s greatest weaknesses are compassion and generosity of spirit, so he simply couldn’t help himself.

Unfortunately, when you make over your party to appeal strictly to lowlifes, your applicant pool becomes pretty shallow, and the dose of chlorine needed to disinfectant it could melt the eyeballs out of every skull within a 15-mile radius. So you get awful stories like this one from Wednesday.
