“I got all the best people – me, Donald Trump, myself, my hairpiece, also me, Don, Melania’s husband, Donald, Ivanka’s father, that guy who just won the election – all really amazing, tremendous people! I’ll also hire some losers for the other jobs.”

Last Tuesday, America elected Donald Trump as our new president, and he has been diligently working to assemble the list of people he wants to nominate for various positions in his cabinet. And since Donald Trump isn’t a regular politician, the people he wants to put in charge of the government won’t be regular politicians either. Here are 10 federal jobs and 10 people Donald Trump is considering for these jobs.

1)  Transportation Security Administration: Billy Bush, the co-star of the Trump’s infamous “Grab-em-by-the-p***y” leaked video. In this video, Mr. Bush proved that he would be well-suited for enabling the TSA agents to grab people without their consent.

2)  Department of the Interior: Sarah Palin. Not only she prefers to stay in the interior of the country and avoids the liberal coasts of the US, she also took a college course in interior design.

3)  Food and Drug Administration: Bill Cosby. A nationally recognized expert in administering drugs with food and drinks. Nomination is pending the Senate approval and the outcome of 7,589 upcoming rape trials.

4)  Environmental Protection Agency: Princess Elsa from Frozen. She can stop the global warming without any job-killing regulations.  And yes, she is fictional, but according to Donald Trump, so is global warming.

5)  Women’s Bureau: Any randomly picked male. The government needs more diversity, and since there are way too many women in this bureau, assigning a male director would improve the gender disparity in the government.

6)  Department of Deportation (formerly Immigration and Naturalization Service): To catch and deport illegal immigrants successfully, the head of the department must think like illegal immigrant, act like illegal immigrant, be the illegal immigrant. Which is why this department will be headed by a former illegal immigrant, the First Lady Melania Trump.

7)  Department of Defense: John Gotti, mafia boss: Our allies haven’t been paying for our protection, and we’ll need someone to make them pay our due. Because it would be a shame if something bad happened to their nice countries.

8)  Press Secretary: A trained parrot named Hanny that can speak four phrases: “Believe me, it’s a disaster”, “Our goal is to make America great again!”, “We have people, best people, and they are looking into this, big league!”, and “I’ll take the next question from the Fox News”.

9)  Office for Civil Rights: David Duke, former Ku-Klux-Klan leader. He has proved to be the most knowledgeable about civil rights and is able to identify at least 88 times as many civil rights granted to the minorities than what an average American could ever name. He should be able to cut through the glut of federal civil rights regulations and cut down the excessive civil rights to a more manageable few.

10)  Fish and Wildlife Service: Phil Robertson, star of the Duck Dynasty reality show. He knows tons of ways to preserve fish and wildlife: smoking, salting, freezing, pressure canning, dehydration, and so on.

Since there are at least 10,000 various other federal departments, agencies, bureaus, and offices, please feel free to suggest your nominations.

    I can’t help but feel that Trump’s Hair would make a great director of the department of deportation, after all it is made from the hair of a golden retriever.

    For head of Cybersecurity, I suggest Vladimir Putin. It’s a challenging job, but I think most everyone will agree that he can hack it.

    For the Department of Education, I submit the TV evangelist Pat Robertson. He would be perfect. He would put churches in charge of packing little noggins with the TRUTH about evolution. Pat could do double duty by praying away hurricanes when they threaten the east coast.

      Or, rather, he’ll pray the hurricanes towards the east coast, because that’s where all the gays and libruls and feminazis are who all need to be punished by God.
      But definitely, education will get so much easier when our students will only have one textbook for every subject and every grade from pre-K to 12.

    Not sure anyone could make me laugh about this election, but you came close!


  8. Douglas E says:

    Hanny, #8, is one of the most despicable, duplicitous, lying, piece of hypocritical scum known to “journalism”. He never ceases to amaze; most recently flipflopping on the White House banning certain news media. It was deplorable bullying when Obama threatened Fox News, and now it’s simply great that the Donald is threatening the NYTimes and Washington Post.


  9. Another nomination: Bill Clinton, Department of Enemies. Trump mentioned recently that he had a very ‘gracious’ call from Bill. And, this will be a single point to which any and all failures of any other department can be directed.


  10. pegoleg says:

    Great choices all, but I think Melania may lose out for the top spot in the Department of Speedy Immigrant Expulsion. President Obama is a shoe-in. His people have been bragging for some time that he’s exported more people during his tenure than the previous 43 presidents combined.


  11. EagleAye says:

    Positively stellar! I was smiling through the whole list. Don’t be surprised if Trump takes a few of these ideas seriously. Chances are good he actually will put David Duke in a cabinet position. 😦

    You are not helping me keep down my dinner, X.


  13. Twindaddy says:

    I’m pretty sure this is supposed to be satire, but it feels more like the truth to me.


  14. I elect YOU as Minister of Esprit De Corps. It’s a new position. It requires a PhD in keeping it real, so you qualify. The pay is okay but killer benefits.


  15. Trent Lewin says:

    Number 4 I’m sharing with my kids… they get the movie and the issue well enough to probably laugh their heads off. That’s right, X. You have cross-generational appeal now.


    • List of X says:

      And that’s on top of the cross-border appeal, I presume.
      By the way, it’s possible my posts about Trump will now seem more funny when read outside of the US than when read within…


  16. Amaya says:

    You are the greatest satirist of all time, bigly. Marvelous.


  17. What’s sad is that he actually is considering Sarah Palin for something – I forget what. Probably Dept. of Communications, that would be perfect. Also the former head of the website Brietbart, known for their fair and balanced racist news and conspiracy theories, has been chosen for a cabinet position. Because of course he has.

    I think our one hope is that even Trump has no idea where he stands. If we had, say, Pence, we’d know we were getting total crap. Whereas with Trump, we might get total crap, we might get stuff that actually isn’t that bad (because he doesn’t know better), or we might get something even worse, like say nuclear meltdown. Interesting times, indeed.


    • List of X says:

      There are so many appointments he has to make, and I don’t think he has enough relatives and business associates to fill them all. So then it comes down to politicians he knows – meaning, politicians who endorsed him, which means Palin is pretty much guaranteed a spot somewhere.
      The scariest thing is, with the caliber of the people Trump is considering, Palin may actually seem like one of the more competent appointees.


  18. Okay, the Cosby bit might be the most tasteless and most funny thing ever.

    The Hitler clone didn’t make the cut, X?

    And yet, and yet, reality. Just as bizarre.


  21. aFrankAngle says:

    Good list … but Hanny the Parrot and Phil Robertson got the best reactions. Someone from Alaskan Bush People could edge out Palin.


I can see you have something to say...
