Help Wanted: Vile Person to Facilitate Agenda of Malice

Donald Trump is still in search of a new chief of staff to replace John Kelly, who will be running from the White House screaming at the end of this year.

There aren't any competent, qualified, decent people volunteering for the gig, which means the pool from which Trump has to select the new highest-ranking non-elected employee of the White House whom he will definitely ignore and have embarrassing public fallings-out with is very shallow.

And the chief of staff position has the same problem as that which I noted regarding the Attorney General vacancy: Anyone who is willing to work in the capacity of Donald Trump's chief of staff is axiomatically unfit to serve the nation with decency.

All of which is preamble to this: I don't really give a fuck who Trump chooses. I'm going to regard them, whoever they are, with undiluted contempt just for accepting the job.
