The wanna be dictator's playbook:

 

1. Spend huge amounts of money on the military. You need them on your side.

 

2. Lie. Lie big. Lie often. Accustom the citizenry to lies so they won't demand the truth.

 

3. Appoint people to key government positions based on their loyalty to you. They know they aren't qualified and need to support you to keep their jobs.

 

4. Constantly invoke authority you do not have. Eventually, people will think you have such authority.

 

5. Never appear vulnerable. Never apologize. Never admit your mistakes.

Trump wants the least qualified people in his administration ... just as he is the least qualified person for president.

The record of the Trump administration remains consistent.  He has been unable to hire anyone with any competence and then he can't keep the incompetent ones working for him.  I take that as a sign.

 

Perhaps the clearest sign that three-term Texas congressman Ratcliffe is manifestly unqualified to serve as the nation’s director of national intelligence isn’t the fact that he embellished his résumé, nor that only a minority of the US Senate would vote to confirm him, nor that the first time he was floated for the post last summer he was so soundly rejected that he withdrew almost immediately.

Instead, it’s that years before just 49 senators of the 116th Congress—all Republicans—voted to confirm him last week as the head of the nation’s 17 intelligence agencies and the president’s top intelligence adviser, the 108th Congress tried to stop a man like Ratcliffe from assuming that very role in the first place. They wrote into the law that created the job, 50 US Code § 3023, “Any individual nominated for appointment as Director of National Intelligence shall have extensive national security expertise.”

And John Ratcliffe definitely doesn’t.
