    Also, on the ethics brouhaha, another take:

    How Trump Had It Both Ways on Congressional Ethics

    I liked this bit:
    "But Trump just can't be on the right side! Heck, I bet this idea was even something we can blame on Trump, if only we attribute it to 'a Trump way of thinking'."

    I mean, if you can't even hold off on the bashes when he does something you agree with
    I didn't agree with what he said on twitter. That is the nuance you do not understand. And I'm not a useful idiot who exagerates the impact of his tweets. Like you.

    This might have some weight coming from you if not for Hillary!!! Obama!!!!

    Do you believe that Trump cares about this? I guess you didn't read the article.

    My problems with Hillary and Obama are entirely based on thier actions, not that I can assign them a way of thinking that's then applied to others so the Hillary and Obama are to blame for what others did.

    Although, the "you too" argument hypocrisy is funny!

    I enjoy pointing out the hypocrisy in others who decry it when their opponents do it and ignore it when their allies do it, but I don't justify anything because someone else did it.

    Just like Obama did to Bush's appointees? I recall you being mad about that, too, right?

    I've seen evidence that President Obama extended at least one of the in-place political ambassadors (for about 2 weeks), but nothing else.

    Incoming presidents of both parties have often made exceptions to allow ambassadors to wrap up personal affairs and important diplomatic business while their successors were in the confirmation process, which can take months. Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Mr. Obama all granted extensions for a few politically appointed ambassadors.

    Enk's link is better. Both directives are the same: get out. That Obama made a "few" exception to his own blanket order really doesn't refute the blanket order to begin with.

    Seriously, though, your article is ridiculous. Anyone in an Ambassadorship that's left scrambling because they relied on an incoming administration to extend their political appointment after the State Department directed them to resign effective 20 Jan is an idiot deserving of their panic. Any distress caused to their families, while regrettable, is the fault of the idiot ambassador, not Trump.
