Trump Shows a Complete Lack of Class

Charlie Brotman has been the official announcer for the Inaugural parade for the last sixty years.

Until the Trumpers canned him.

With a near zero level of respect for Mr. Brotman, they did it by email. They didn't have the courtesy to do it in person, or even call him up. Nope, just a sterile "thanks for nothing, old man" email.

Class act; not.

But we've got bigger things to worry about, like nuclear weapons:
According to an official within the Department of Energy, this past Friday, the President-elect’s team instructed the head of the National Nuclear Security Administration and his deputy to clean out their desks when Trump takes office on January 20th.

The NNSA is the $12 billion-a-year agency that “maintains and enhances the safety, security, and effectiveness of the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile.” It’s unclear when the two officials will be replaced.
As noted in the article, it was into President Obama's second term before he replaced the Bushies who had those jobs. Trump, on the other hand, is canning every appointee without regard for the function that they fulfilled or whether there is anyone in line to take over.

Vindictive, amateurish and arrogant. Trump's performance as President could be the worst job of acting since Keanu Reeves.

And gizimodo has backed off and issued a retraction to that.
