No one gives a shit what "Sloppy"  Graydon Carter thinks, especially Trump.

Since you seem just as clueless as fat POS Carter as to why Trump relates well to the working class, it's his business: Real Estate Development and Management. Even at his level, you deal with tradesmen, construction workers and maintenance people. A magazine editor like Carter can't understand that and apparently neither can you.



Trump must give a shit if he bothered to tweet about Graydon.

Vanity Fair is owned by Condé Nast. In 2013 the magazine had a circulation of over 1.2 million. Graydon Carter has been Vanity Fair's editor since 1992.

At Trump's level, he has project managers who deal with tradesmen, construction workers and maintenance people. If you think he actually interacts with these working folks, many of which his corporation has stiffed....think bankruptcy....you are the one who is clueless.

Trump to nominate Steven Mnuchin for Treasury Secretary, sources say
Published November 29, 2016
FoxNews.com

President-elect Donald Trump will nominate former Goldman Sachs banker Steven Mnuchin to be his Treasury Secretary, two sources close to the transition told Fox News late Tuesday.

One source told Fox that a formal announcement of Mnuchin's nomination could come as early as Wednesday.

Mnuchin had long been considered a favorite for the Treasury position. Two weeks ago, businessman and close Trump associate Carl Icahn tweeted that Trump was considering Mnuchin for the post.

Mnuchin, 53, was appointed Trump's campaign finance chair this past May. Through his work, Mnuchin grew close to Trump's children and son-in-law, Jared Kushner -- a top adviser to Trump -- and worked with them on fundraising events.

The campaign raised at least $169 million, in addition to the $66 million Trump spent out of his own pocket. Though that was far short of what Hillary Clinton raised, it represented an impressive haul given that Trump didn't begin fundraising in earnest until the end of May.

If approved by the Senate, Mnuchin would follow in the tradition of two previous treasury secretaries -- Robert Rubin in the Clinton administration and Henry Paulson in George W. Bush's. All had vast Wall Street experience gained from years spent working at Goldman Sachs.

Yet unlike Rubin and Paulson and unlike President Barack Obama's two treasury secretaries, Timothy Geithner and Jacob Lew, Mnuchin would bring no government experience to Treasury, something that could prove a hurdle in navigating the tricky politics of Washington.

After graduating from Yale in 1985. Mnuchin worked for Goldman Sachs for 17 years. His father, Robert Mnuchin, had himself worked for Goldman for three decades, becoming a partner in charge of equity trading.

The younger Mnuchin amassed his own fortune at the firm and then left in 2002. He worked briefly for Soros Fund Management, a hedge fund led by George Soros, before starting his own investment firm, Dune Capital Management.

As head of this firm, Mnuchin and other investors participated in the purchase of failed mortgage lender IndyMac in 2009 and renamed it OneWest. The failure of IndyMac in 2008 with $32 billion in assets was one of the biggest casualties of the housing bust.

Mnuchin became chairman of OneWest, which was sold to CIT Group in 2015. Before the sale, OneWest faced a string of lawsuits over its home foreclosure practices.

This month, housing advocates filed a complaint asking the Department of Housing and Urban Development to investigate OneWest for possible violations of the Fair Housing Act. The lender failed to place branches in minority communities, provided few mortgages to black homebuyers and preserved foreclosed properties in white neighborhoods while allowing similar homes in minority communities to fall into disrepair, according to the California Reinvestment Coalition and Fair Housing Advocates of Northern California.

CIT declined to respond directly to the complaint but stressed in a statement that it is "committed to fair lending and works hard to meet the credit needs of all communities and neighborhoods we serve."

Mnuchin also became a major investor in Hollywood, helping finance a number of movies, including the 2009 blockbuster "Avatar."

As treasury secretary, Mnuchin would be the administration's chief economic spokesman, serving as a liaison not only to Wall Street but also to global investors, a critical role given the trillions of dollars in treasury bonds owned by foreigners. In addition, it would be his job to sell the new administration's economic program to Congress.

Mnuchin will also oversee a sprawling bureaucracy that includes the Internal Revenue Service and the agency that issues millions of Social Security and other benefit checks each month. Treasury also runs the agency that wages the financial war on terrorism.

Earlier Tuesday, Trump officially nominated Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., as Health and Human Services Secretary and tapped Elaine Chao, former President George W. Bush's Labor Secretary, to be secretary of transportation.

Price, a former surgeon, supports the repeal of ObamaCare and has offered a replacement that would provide tax credits to subsidize the purchase of individual and family health insurance policies. His proposal would also allow insurers to sell policies across state line, boost incentives for health savings accounts, and create high-risk pools to help individuals afford coverage, while barring assistance for nearly all abortions.

Price has emerged as a top advocate of House Speaker Paul Ryan's plan to transform Medicare from a program that supplies a defined set of benefits into a "premium support" model that would, similar to Obamacare, offer subsidies for participants to purchase health care directly from insurance companies. He also wants the Medicare eligibility age to rise to 67.

Price also backs, as does Trump, a plan by House Republicans to sharply cut the Medicaid health program for the poor and disabled and turn it over to the states to run. Like Trump and most other Republicans, Price wants federal funding withdrawn from Planned Parenthood, which has come under attack for its practice of supplying tissue from aborted fetuses to medical researchers.

If confirmed as Transportation Secretary, Chao would face many pressing issues, such as how to boost the nation's aging infrastructure so that it can accommodate population growth and not become a drag on the economy, modernizing the nation's air traffic control system, ensuring that new transportation technologies are adopted in a safe manner and responding to a surge in traffic fatalities.

After serving in the Bush administration, Chao served on the board of directors for Bloomberg Philanthropies, run by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. She resigned last year after learning the organization planned to expand an environmental initiative to shutter coal-fired power plants.

Almost 90 percent of Kentucky's electricity comes from coal, and Chao's ties to the organization were used against her husband, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, during his 2014 re-election campaign.

This one would baffle me. Trump called Romney a choker. How do you hire him after that?

With that in mind, I say Romney doesn't get the Secy of State job.

I think we can find lots of pretty bad things people said about Trump (including me).

At this point, with the multiple meetings and Romney's statements after last night's dinner, I'll actually be surprised if he doesn't get the job.  He would be a good choice IMO.

Team Trump: Secretary of State Options Down to Final 4

By Mark Swanson   |    Wednesday, 30 Nov 2016

Donald Trump's transition team said Wednesday that the president-elect has narrowed his choice for secretary of state down to four, Politico reported.

Transition senior communications adviser Sean Spicer wouldn't say which four, but Mitt Romney and Rudy Guiliani are believed to be the front-runners.

Spicer also said there's no timetable for when Trump will announce his pick, only to say that it wouldn't be this week.
 
"At this time, the secretary of state position has been narrowed down to four potential candidates," Spicer said on a conference call, according to Politico. "But to that point, we do not anticipate any further Cabinet appointments the rest of this week."

In addition to Romney and Guiliani, Trump has met with or reportedly considered four others for the cabinet position:

•Sen. Bob Corker.
•Former ambassador John Bolton.
•Former CIA Director David Petraeus.
•Retired Gen. John Kelly.

"Obviously, you have Gov. Romney, who he's been chatting with, and Mayor Giuliani, who's been under strong consideration as well," communications director Jason Miller was quoted by Politico.

"But since those have been a little more openly discussed, I'll go ahead and leave it at that so I don't get ahead of the president-elect for where he is in the process."

With Trump, name calling is par for the course. He probably does not expect to be taken too seriously.

Based on California and New York.  If the popular vote mattered, Trump would have spent a lot more time campaigning in both of those states.    

It was an electoral college landslide.

Could Trump pick Sarah Palin to lead VA?
By: Leo Shane III, Military Times,  November 30, 2016

Speculation over President-elect Donald Trump’s pick to become the next Veterans Affairs Secretary centered on a surprise name Wednesday: Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

Palin, the 2008 vice presidential nominee, is the mother of an Army veteran, and if selected would become both the first woman and first non-veteran to hold the post.

How serious her candidacy is remains unclear. Her name has not been among front-runners rumored in recent weeks, and would come with a considerable amount of controversy given her lack of prior experience with VA issues and reputation for candid, sometimes inflammatory public comments.

But Palin did endorse Trump on the campaign trail and has been rumored to be up for some role within his administration. Trump transition officials would not comment on the VA rumors.

In a Facebook post responding to news stories on her possible candidacy, Palin wrote that “We should be grateful we'll soon have a commander-in-chief who will champion our vets and honor the promises our nation made; a pro-private sector individual who surely understands bigger government is NOT the answer.”

She called Trump “a president who promised to drain the swamp and clean up all government corruption... all things our vets and active duty troops deserve.”

Unlike other Cabinet posts like Secretary of Defense and Secretary of State, few names have publicly emerged to take over the top VA job.

On Tuesday, Trump met with Fox News personality Pete Hegseth to discuss an unspecified post within the next administration.

Hegseth, the former president of the conservative advocacy group Concerned Veterans for America, served in Iraq with the Minnesota National Guard and has been a vocal advocate for sweeping VA reform.

Earlier in the month, former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown announced after a meeting with Trump that he was in the running for the VA Secretary post, though transition officials have not confirmed that either. He served 35 years in the Army National Guard.

Sources within the transition team have floated current House Veterans’ Affairs Committee Chairman Jeff Miller, R-Fla., as a possible candidate. Miller, who is retiring from Congress, is not a veteran but has been among the leaders in VA reform efforts in recent years, co-authoring the 2014 bill which created the Veterans Choice Card program.

Transition officials are scheduled to meet with veterans groups on Thursday in Washington, D.C. to discuss broad plans for veterans programs and VA appointments.

You're right and thank you for qualifying it. There is a decided difference between popular and electoral votes.

Trump is known for walking around the sites of his projects. You really don't think he's dealt with tradespeople in his 40 years as a builder/manager?

You're just a clueless boob who has been exposed. The infantile nonsense you continually spout is no different than that of some zit faced college liberal arts major.

....look into the history of the Trump Tower, the crown jewel of the real-estate mogul's empire, reveals the beginnings of the 68-story building were, in fact, rooted in the back-breaking labor of 150-odd Polish immigrants — most working illegally, some without full pay.

"Week after week, no check," said Sosnowski, who was a civil engineer in Poland before coming to the U.S. in 1979. He was promised $5 an hour but remembers his pockets were empty except for "a couple of dollars for coffee and a roll."

Court records make clear the contractor who hired the men knew he was using undocumented workers without Social Security numbers.

Does Trump speak Polish?

"Trump is known for walking around the sites of his projects." Thin Lizzy

I found no evidence to support your statement. Even if he does survey the job site, it doesn't mean he actually interacts in any meaningful way with the workers.
