This is how worthless people can make a decent income.
Consider it helpful in this time of economic downturn.
NOT.

Great.

Each of these appointments is more ludicrous than the last.

What does this DO? Give 'em a few bucks and a line on their resume? This is a legitimate question…

Precisely. Buck$ and re$ume padding.
It also allows them to provide their sage advice. :face_vomiting:

WTF? Why does the US President get to appoint to the Fulbright board and the United States Holocaust Memorial Council and the rest? This insults those organizations and their supporters.

Is there a way to undo this bullshit?

Or is that like trying to put the shit back in the bull?

Well we all knew Trump wasn’t going to pay them for his 2024 campaign.

I certainly hope so. Hopefully their fellow board members can appeal or blackball… this is a travesty. None of these people should ever work again, and for this reason alone they should be pursued criminally.

Can’t believe anyone near Trump can have a title with the word “Science” in it.

It varies.

Pam Bondi, for example, is to be a general trustee of the Kennedy Center. By law, she can hold this position for six years. The saving grace is that she will be only one trustee out of about fifty (not that all the others are worthy, but most of them are).

Hope Hicks will be joining Sarah Huckabee Sanders on the Fulbright board. Because only the best.

It varies.

Ezra Cohen-Watnick, for example, may do real harm as chair of the Public Interest Declassification Board (a function of the National Archives).

If they can’t be sacked … perhaps just accidentally email them the wrong meeting dates and times for the year.

Fulbright director terms are only 3 years AND ARE UNPAID

These entities are all part of Big Government.
