THERE ARE NOTABLE DIFFERENCES
BETWEEN PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA’S CABINET PICKS AND DONALD TRUMP’S
CABINET PICKS. ONE THING THAT REALLY STAND OUT THAT NOT A LOT
OF PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT IS THE EDUCATION LEVEL AND
EXPERTISE BETWEEN THE TWO ADMINISTRATIONS. SHAUN KING
WROTE ABOUT THIS, YOU REALIZE HOW STARK THE DIFFERENCES WERE
AND IT SEEMS LIKE PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS HELD TO A HIGHER
STANDARD WHEN IT CAME TO HIS CABINET PICKS. LET ME GIVE YOU
EXAMPLES, LET’S START OFF WITH THE EXECUTIVE IN CHIEF FIRST.
WHEN IT COMES TO OBAMA, A LOT OF YOU PROBABLY KNOW — PRETTY IMPRESSIVE. DONALD
TRUMP, A LITTLE DIFFERENT — BEFORE WE CONTINUE ON, LET ME
BE CLEAR ABOUT SOMETHING — I DON’T THINK THAT YOU NECESSARILY
HAVE TO HAVE A PHD TO BE QUALIFIED FOR A PARTICULAR ROLE
OR PARTICULAR JOB, BUT THERE ARE CERTAIN AREAS OF EXPERTISE YOU
SHOULD HAVE IF YOU ARE CHOSEN AS A MEMBER OF THE CABINET, RIGHT?
SO IF YOU ARE SECRETARY OF STATE YOU SHOULD HAVE EXPERTISE
REGARDING THAT FIELD. AND IT SEEMS LIKE THERE IS A LITTLE BIT
OF LACK OF KNOWLEDGE, BASED ON TRUMP’S PICKS. AND I KNOW THE CONVENTIONAL
WISDOM ON THIS ISSUE, AND DEMOCRATS, THAT’S WHY THEY DON’T
BRAG ABOUT THEIR EDUCATION AND THEIR DEGREES — EGGHEADS,
REPUBLICANS WILL SAY. WE DON’T NEED THOSE GUYS. BUT FIRST OF
ALL, IF YOU ARE BRAGGING ABOUT HOW UNEDUCATED AND IGNORANT YOU
ARE, HAVE AT IT, HOSS. I WOULD GO TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND
NOT BELITTLE PEOPLE WHO DON’T HAVE PHDS OR AN IVY LEAGUE
EDUCATION, BUT SAY LISTEN, IF YOU ARE GOING TO A DOCTOR TO GET
SURGERY, WOULDN’T YOU WANT SOMEONE WHO HAS A LOT OF
EDUCATION IN SURGERY? OR DO YOU WANT YOUR LOCAL PLUMBER COMING
IN TO DO SURGERY ON YOUR HEART OR YOUR STOMACH OR YOUR HEAD?
NO, YOU WANT A GUY WHO IS QUALIFIED FOR THE JOB. NOW, IF
YOU WANT TO ARGUE, REPUBLICANS, THAT UNQUALIFIED PEOPLE ARE THE
BETTER WAY TO GO, HAVE AT IT, HOSS. YOU CAN MAKE THAT ARGUMENT,
AND WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS IN FOUR YEARS AND WHETHER OR NOT
YOU ARE RIGHT. WE’LL SEE. LET’S TALK ABOUT THE OTHER CABINET
PICKS — BY THE WAY, WITH BETSY DEVOS,
I DON’T REALLY EVEN CARE THAT MUCH ABOUT HER BACHELORS DEGREE,
I THINK WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS WHETHER OR NOT THIS PERSON HAS
EVER HELD A JOB IN EDUCATION, HAS SHE EVER WORKED IN PUBLIC
SCHOOLS, HAS SHE WORKED IN CHARTER SCHOOLS? THE ONLY THING
SHE HAS EVER DONE HIS WORK TO DEFUND PUBLIC EDUCATION AND PUT
PUBLIC MONEY INTO PRIVATE EDUCATION OR CHARTER SCHOOLS,
AND THE REASON WHY SHE DOES THAT IS BECAUSE SHE IS TREMENDOUSLY
WEALTHY, TREMENDOUSLY CONSERVATIVE, AND DOESN’T WANT
TAXPAYER MONEY TO GO TOWARD PUBLIC EDUCATION AT ALL,
SPECIFICALLY HER TAXPAYER MONEY. SO SHE WOULD RATHER DONATE
MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, AND SHE DID, HER FAMILY IS ONE OF THE
LARGEST REPUBLICAN DONORS IN HISTORY, THEY GIVE TENS OF
MILLIONS TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, SO THEY CAN PAY LESS
TAXES. SO IF YOU GIVE 10 MILLION BUT YOU SAVE 100 MILLION IN
TAXES, THAT IS A GOOD DEAL. IN HER CASE SHE IS ALSO VERY
RELIGIOUS, SO SHE WANTS TO TAKE YOUR TAXPAYER MONEY AND FUNNEL
IT TO THE RELIGIOUS SCHOOLS OF HER CHOICE. YOUR RELIGIOUS
SCHOOLS — MMM, NO, LET’S GET IT TOWARD THE KIND OF PARTICULAR
CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS SHE LIKES. SO THEY’VE GOT ALL THESE AGENDAS.
HER MAIN QUALIFICATION FOR THIS JOB IS HOW MUCH MONEY HER FAMILY
HAS GIVEN TO DESTROY PUBLIC EDUCATION, THAT’S WHY SHE
BECOMES THE EDUCATION SECRETARY. IT IS INSANE. IT HAS TO DO
WITH CAMPAIGN DONATIONS, WHETHER OR NOT SOMEONE HAS BEEN
SUPPORTIVE OF DONALD TRUMP, WHETHER OR NOT HE OR SHE FITS
HIS AGENDA. IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT THE EXPERTISE OR EDUCATION
IS, I KNOW, IT’S DEVASTATING. OBAMA’S FIRST SECRETARY OF
ENERGY, LET’S TALK ABOUT THAT — HE WAS — JESUS. I KNOW, THAT’S IMPRESSIVE.
AND — THAT’S ALL IMPRESSIVE, RIGHT? IT IS SUPER IMPRESSIVE. IF YOU
ARE ONE OF THOSE, DUH, I DON’T NEED SMART PEOPLE IN GOVERNMENT
— THEN DON’T COMPLAIN ABOUT GOVERNMENT SUCKING, BECAUSE YOU
PUT IDIOTS IN CHARGE. WHAT IS TRUMP GOING TO DO WITH
THIS POSITION? WELL — ♪ ANIMALS ARE INNOCENTS ♪ YES, THEY ARE. DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY, OBAMA
PUT IN THE SMARTEST PHYSICS PROFESSORS IN THE WORLD TO
ACTUALLY GET IT RIGHT, AND PERRY IS LIKE, UM — HE DIDN’T GET A C
IN CHEMISTRY, HE FAILED CHEMISTRY. YOU KNOW WHY HE GOT
THE JOB? HE’S ON THE BOARD OF ENERGY TRANSFER PARTNERS, WHO
OWNED THE DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE, TRUMP IS INVESTED IN
ENERGY TRANSFER PARTNERS AND THE REST OF THE PEOPLE WHO RUN THE
DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE, SO HE IS LIKE, GREAT, THIS MORON WHO
BARELY GRADUATED COLLEGE IN ANIMAL SCIENCES, COME ON IN
BECAUSE YOU WILL DO EXACTLY WHAT I WANT FOR MY OWN FINANCIAL
INTERESTS. THAT IS HOW HE IS RUNNING THE GOVERNMENT. AND THEN — REX TILLERSON IS THE CEO OF
EXXON MOBIL, AS MANY OF YOU ALREADY KNOW, AND HE WILL BE
SECRETARY OF STATE. OKAY — AGAIN, WITH STEVE MNUCHIN, I
DON’T CARE ABOUT HIS EDUCATION, WHAT I CARE ABOUT IS HIS
PERSONAL INTERESTS AND WHETHER OR NOT HE MIGHT USE THIS ROLE TO
BENEFIT HIMSELF AND TO BENEFIT FROM FINANCIAL, AND MNUCHIN OF
COURSE HAS TIES TO GOLDMAN SACHS AND OTHER BANKS — I FORGET THE
NAME OF THE BANK WE COVERED — ONE WEST. YES, HE FOUNDED ONE WEST,
WHICH DID A BUNCH OF SHADY FORECLOSURES, MANY OF WHICH
HAPPENED TO TRUMP VOTERS. THIS IS INTERESTING STUFF, I DON’T
THINK YOUR LEVEL OF EDUCATION IS THE END-ALL, BE-ALL — I THINK
EXPERTISE MATTERS. WHETHER EXPERTISE IS GAINED THROUGH
EXPERIENCE OR GETTING A PHD IT IS IMPORTANT, AND I THINK IT IS
VERY CLEAR THAT OBAMA’S CABINET WAS HELD TO A MUCH
HIGHER STANDARD, IT SEEMS LIKE WITH TRUMP THAT’S NOT THE
CASE. THE LAST THING ON THIS —
AGREED, YOU CAN PUT ONE OR TWO GUYS WHO HAVE NOT BEEN IN
GOVERNMENT, MNUCHIN, TRUMP COULD SAY I LIKE RAPACIOUS BANKERS WHO
WORKED FOR GOLDMAN SACHS AND GEORGE SOROS, SO WHAT IF HE
DOESN’T HAVE AS MANY DEGREES? THAT’S FAIR ENOUGH. BUT WHEN
YOUR ENTIRE CABINET IS FILLED WITH IGNORANCE AND THEIR ONLY
QUALIFICATION FOR GETTING IN THERE IS THAT THEY GAVE YOU
MONEY, THAT IS ALSO TRUE OF TILLERSON GIVING MONEY TO
REPUBLICANS HISTORICALLY, MNUCHIN NOT ONLY GAVE MONEY TO
TRUMP SUPER PACS BUT HE WAS ALSO HIS CAMPAIGN CHAIR, HE ORGANIZED
ALL THESE BRIBES, WHEN THAT IS YOUR MAIN QUALIFICATION,
YOU’VE GOT TROUBLE. ALL OF YOU WHO WANTED HIM TO
DRAIN THE SWAMP, WE SHOWED YOU WHAT THE SWAMP IS. HE NOMINATED THE SWAMP, AND IT’S
ON ITS WAY.

100 thoughts on “How Qualified Are Trump’s Cabinet Picks?”

  1. Guys, your report is partisan which is understandable, but it's filled with false information (i.e. Fake News). Please fact check what you are reporting before presenting misinformation as facts. Love you guys, but please don't turn into yet another source of fake news.

  2. why cant the presidential candidates have their cabinet pick before the election? that way people can know what the president really stand for

  3. His cabinet picks are not chosen based on intelligence or qualifications. They are chosen depending on how much republican (equals corrupted) they are.

  4. New curriculum in red states:
    * 2 hours a day shooting cans
    * 15 hours a week about how to poorly read the bible
    * 5 hours a week about why white is better
    * 2 hours a week about why democracy is evil
    * 5 hours a week about how wonderfull corruption is and how much someone born rich is better than the rest
    * 3 hours a week about how to mooch from blue states

    nb: the corruption classes will have parts about climate change being a hoax because they are related

  5. President Obama was held to high standards in everything. He had to be perfect. Trump is of low character, low standards, low ethics, low principles, low everything. The same criticizing public hails Trump as OK. If Trump were a minority or a women, he wouldn't have a chance in hell. Regardless of the money.

  6. Clearly, Trump's picks are people who will do what HE wants. Not what is best for the country as a whole. This is stupid, and very dangerous. Since Trump has no world view of politics, and their consequences. These unqualified people will reek havoc on the country. This is going to end badly.

  7. Trump believes in affirmative action, the republican definition. He believes in giving incompetents like de vos important positions to give them a chance.

  8. How ignorant these two are. I'd take CEO's, Generals, Governors with decades of proven leadership and success vs. political appointees and intellectuals with zero real life job experience. Why do you need a PhD in physics to run the dept of energy? You need someone who has demonstrated success over a long period of time managing a huge entity and certainly, as corny as he is, Perry was a very successful governor for like 12 years.

  9. There would also be training as a plumber. I wouldn't let just anyone touch my sink, let. alone someone not trained in each area of the government.

  10. Ernest Moinz, Obama's current Sec of Energy kinda looks like Einstein but less German and with less funny hair, still funny but not as funny as Einstein's. Also Moinz kinda looks like Trump's doctor but with grey hair

  11. Trump has said publicly to surround yourself with those who are NOT smart so YOU look smart! Well, he's doing it, only he's even LESS smart!

  12. "Drain the swamp"? He's a real estate guru(kind of) who is building a foundation in the swamp. Congrats Trump supporters for living in a hole for 8 years blaming Obama for your problems instead of your Congressman.

  13. Who cares the college are becoming poorer and poorer places to get a real education from and for we all know this Calvin college could be a better place to be educated at and you have self-taught people who are clearly more educated then some of the people who went to college and have greater and more rounded knowledge of the subject.

  14. Trump seems to be a pretty devoted kakistocrat. Perhaps he surrounds himself with utterly incompetent people to feel better about his own incompetence.

  15. Every video TYT puts up is a liberal whine fest. Try something new for a change. News flash to some people in the comment section. Your not special, just because mumsy said you are and if you truly believe Hillary was a better choice then you should question your own education and realize it was a yuge waste of money.

  16. Not that Hillary offered anything.. but Trump was painted to look anti-establishment and anti-Israel as you could get. But even before January, he's proven to be very pro-establishment and very pro-Israel. Jews and others will continue the ruse that Trump is anti-Jew.. because they don't want to give up the charade too soon. So much for fighting for a strong America. Hello globalism and more moves against individual rights and freedoms. He'll probably manage to stifle free speech, something America has fought off longer than many countries.

  17. the young Turks, talking about qualifications yet they call them selves journalists, I am a butcher by trade and i would make a better journalists than the young Nazis.

  18. all you people against Trump just sit there and dwell in your miserable self. you would rather watch him fail on our great nation then succeed. what kind of person does that make you?

  19. Scrutinizing otherwise accomplished people's education level seems absurd from those that have nothing by comparison (not actual). Trumps cabinet doesn't hold nearly as many graduates or PHds as Obamas, and yet the cabinet is the richest in presidential history and the most entrepreneurial. This is not the right way to attack his administration.

  20. An idiot makes idiot picks. Would expect anything else. I think Trump has exceeded everyone's expectations in this. But this should be interesting. What's the flowrate of stupid? When ya plug it in at the top, how long is it before it starts to affect all of us on a real, practical level? Guess we'll be finding out very soon…

  21. You idiots think these people need these cabinet posistions no they are all rich and could live the high life but no obviously they all have a passion for this country and knowing how to build a rocket to mars isnt going to do shit in their positions.

    I mean sure all obamas picks were well educated but look what they did for this country… its worse than it was before ignorant cucks

  22. +The Young Turks And you're not qualified to be a media source judging how biased you are with no facts.

  23. Dude that moron became the President of the US. smdh. I am not a fan of Trump. Most Americans dont know how some of these positions work. I guess one can always google these different positions but then again I can go on WebMD and attempt to figure out what wrong when I am feeling ill. Most of the time its cancer. Lol. My point is we can see what a job title entails but misunderstand what they are really are doing. Most jobs Ive done have been this way for me. Its never like by the book. I just feel this guy sounds petty and it only adds on to the negative rhetoric liberals are getting from the right. I guess the last part of that doesn't matter because conservatives will always find something. Just dont make it easy for these bastards thats all. Lol.

  24. I wonder what is the education level of the cast on TYT. talking all that shit and incase people didn't know some of our greatest Americans actually dropped out of college because it didn't serve the purpose of what they wanted to accomplish. yeah so many billionairs in this comment section hahah

  25. From president Trump on this hole administration is a definite upgrade from the Obama year's. America hasn't had this much fire power in over 100 year in our government. Young Turkey's

  26. The Secretary of Education is an embarrassment. People have always tried to Dumb Down Americans. Being smart has never been popular. Especially true if around those who have less education.

  27. The problem is that Obama is an educated elite out of touch with the common people. I am sick of liberal elites like Obama telling me what to say, how to think, what to eat and why Russia is the bad guy. I'd love to see Obama doing a hard days work in a Hradware shop rather than playing golf and dancing with gays on the Ellen show.

  28. collage makes people geniuses…right?alot of smart people drop out or never go to collage..ben carson is a brain doc and hes dumb af…you people must be morhmans..Lol..you people…

  29. Don't complain about the government sucking because you put the idiots there…I completely agree with you on that statement Cenk but both liberals have been complaining for a long time about the government and you know who was president?? Obama but they don't blame him for the shit job. They are blaming anyone else that isn't associated with they're party. ALL DEMOCRATS ARE HYPOCRITES!!

  30. Even if Trump made the government a million times better, you liberals will ALWAYS complain because he's not a democrat

  31. What have the qualified done? Nothing… You guys still don't get it – Shithead Liberals. Starting with Trump, he was not elected because he is very qualified. The people choose him because the so called Career Politicians are a mess. I for 1 cannot give Trump an above average qualification but the million dollar question remains – What have the best and most qualified done? The Obama, Clinton, RATs… NOTHING.

  32. Just wait after 4 years then you can judge. Unfair to see any qualifications right now, because apparently it didn't work out.

  33. that's why when trumps cabinet picks screws America over (you know they will) I will be right there saying congratulations to trumpy supporters you just f*cked yourself!! lmao

  34. I'm going to love the day Ana becomes a mother and realizes that she is really a conservative. She'll regret being an idiot all her young adult life.

  35. Try IQs….much higher in the Trump cabinent & book smart does not mean common sense which the left have very little of…dont forget where the community organizer started..lame

  36. loving them so far. start trimming the agencies down, treating them as businesses , and reducing their power: school choice and vouchers, whittle down the EPA, and slash tax code. keep going you orange haired wonder. make these middle aged fools look like they did election night!

  37. Your comparison of a plumber doing surgery is juvenile. Public education is a joke. How much money Did the teachers union give the democrats? Betsy is for school choice. Funny the left is all about choice until it comes to kids education. You guys are scared of competition.

  38. Who'd want to work for Trump, the witch hunt media will dig up every lil statement you've made since jr high and try to vilify you as a <race,sex,mysogon,choose all negative character traits>ist and <homo,islamo,choose all negative fear or hates of>phobic.

  39. Who is this woman? She talks like a copy of Cenk, as if they come from the same city, same ethnic background, or maybe the same mother and father. Really, the pronunciation of vowels, the length of spaces between words, etc. I find it amazing!

  40. Trump supporters what the hell where you thinking?Did you really do any research on this guy.Stop taking people for face value and start looking at there past actions and comments, That will give you a judge of what that person really believes in.America time to wake up and start thinking for ourselves.

  41. Then again one of the most intelligent people I ever met could not read or write. He was too busy working to feed his family to get an education. This I assume was not also DJT's reason.

  42. Trump's cabinet? Ha, Their qualifications don't even register especially DeVos.

    Radical conservatives logic, "Hey, as long as the doc looks like the kinda person I can have a beer with than he can perform all kinds of surgeries on me and mine."

  43. Trump throwing paper towels at Purerto Rican US. citzens? I'm amazed he didn't throw bandaids at Las Vegas shooting vics.

  44. That abbreviation is hilarious in Trump's context, Bachelor of Science = B.S. = bullshit talk

    Btw: Science??? Which science? Practical Narcissism?

  45. If you read the official campaign platform of the libertarian party you will find that Trumps policies are not that of a constitutional conservative but of those who were called anarchists a hundred years ago.

  46. Didn't one of Obamas doners send him a list of people to pick for his cabinet? And he took every single one instead for one guy? Cenk talked about that in other videos.
