Carly Fiorina Auditions for Cabinet Apprentice

I don't really think that Donald Trump is seriously considering Carly Fiorina for DNI. Just a feeling-based on watching the past election season pretty closely. She once pointed out that Trump, the outsider, didn't bone up on foreign policy. And although she did endorse him (after running out of Republican options) she rescinded her endorsement.

Do I think Trump is seriously considering her?  Well, we can take a look at her audition reel

"(We) spent a fair amount of time talking about China as probably our most important adversary and a rising adversary. We talked about hacking, whether it's Chinese hacking or purported Russian hacking. We talked about the opportunity that the President-elect has to literally reset things, to reset the trajectory of this economy, to reset the role of government, to reset America's role in the world and how we're perceived in the world," she said.
They talked about whether it was "purported" Russian hacking or "gyna!" I feel like she learned how to say the things he wants her to say which is both adorable and disqualifying. (She failed to do the Carter Page/John Bolton maybe US false flag hack thing, tho') And I also think she already pissed him off enough previously for her current suck-up audition to basically be his get-back--her audition will be rejected. The way he might have been playing pore ole Mitt Romney.

Although, for pols thinking of signing on to Team Trump who ever once opposed him--this is a guy who has openly talked about being about the vendetta. So if you're entertaining being on his cabinet--do you want to eat a buttload of shit all at once (he doesn't pick you after you cozied up hard) or eat a little bit of shit everyday (he hires you). Because I assure you, I do not think the shit is optional. I think the shit is the point.

Or he'll make her DNI because she loves the same generals and flattered Trump's screw-loose ass. But I just mostly doubt it. This is reality show 101--build suspense. It's also not normal and weird for an actual presidential cabinet.

Personally, I'm not sure she's crazy or dangerous enough to make the real appointment list.

Every person he's nominated so far is the Darth Vader (or at least Timothy McVeigh) of their area.
