Donald Trump has some management advice.
If you are careful when finding employees, management becomes a lot easier. I rely on a few key people to keep me informed. They know I trust them, and they do their best to keep that trust intact.
Good people equals good management and good management equals good people. They have to work together or they won’t work together for very long.
I’ve heard this sort of thing before, and there’s truth to it. The president of the US can’t possibly know everything and do everything, so they should surround themselves with smart advisors to fill in the gaps in their experience.
But what if they are a terrible judge of people?
Then they’re hopeless and shouldn’t even be considered for the position. Donald Trump has given us a crystal clear picture of his judgement. He’s willing to consider making Michael Savage the head of the NIH. Michael Savage, the raging, racist, conspiracy theorist radio shock jock.
You might want to consider Savage’s position on medical and scientific matters before giving him the job. Media Matters has documented a huge collection of his statements.
Savage On Autism: “A Fraud, A Racket … In 99 Percent Of The Cases, It’s A Brat Who Hasn’t Been Told To Cut The Act Out.”
Savage Slams PTSD And Depression Sufferers: “Weak,” “Narcissistic,” “Losers.”
Savage Told Listeners Not To Trust The Government On Flu Shots.
Savage: Obama Wants “To Infect The Nation With Ebola.”
Savage Falsely Blamed The 2014 Surge Of Undocumented Children From Central America For Spreading A Deadly Strain Of The Enterovirus.
Savage: Lesbians Are “Jealous That They Don’t Have An AIDS Epidemic That They Can Cash In On.”
Savage Theorized Liberals Like Sen. Bernie Sanders Have Been Driven To “Insanity” Because Of Seltzer.
Savage Was Fired From MSNBC After He Said A Caller Was A “Sodomite” And Said He Should “Get AIDS And Die.”
Savage: Arabs Are “Non-Humans” And “Racist, Fascist Bigots”; “Kill 100 Million” Muslims.
Savage Has Pushed Paranoid And Conspiratorial Rhetoric About President Obama.
It took me a minute to figure out what one of those was about: who is Seltzer, and how is he driving liberals insane? It turns out he was referring to seltzer, carbonated drinks with little fizzing bubbles of CO2. Those damage your brain.
I can’t even imagine how the institutions of science would survive with people like Savage in charge. Maybe he should start a little smaller…just put him in as head of the NIMH and see how well they “work together”.
