  1. I’m conflicted about Mike Pompeo. On one hand, I hate Mike Pompeo and I think leaving the President with no functioning Secretary of State in the middle of his second year would be really, really funny and exactly as humiliating as it should be. BUT, I think leaving the President with no foreign counsel, especially at a time like this where we’re on the verge of a diplomatic crisis in Syria, Russia, China, Japan, Iran, AND North Korea, would be rather irresponsible and dangerous. I think either A) Pompeo needs to be confirmed, or B) Trump needs to nominate somebody else ASAP. The second thing is not going to happen, so it’ll have to be the first.

    1. @mrmattimation this constant shuffling of cards the administration seems bent on doing really isn’t helping those crises anyways but having such an important slot emptied is way worse, I can agree to that.

      1. @awl It really comes down to whether you would rather have a potentially incompetent asshole in the position, or have NOBODY in the position and essentially guarantee that all of our current problems escalate.

        1. @mrmattimation as horrible as it undoubtedly would go part of me wouldn’t mind seeing a Scaramucci comeback
