Star Wars' Mark Hammill says Trump's appointments are a who's who of despicable people: Should Trump's appointments be concerning?

  • It's hard to know what's worse, the bigotry, the incompetence or the corruption

    Since his election, Donald Trump has done his best to confirm the worst nightmares of those who voted against him. Steve Bannon, an incoming top advisor, was one of the founders of Breitbart and a key promoter of alt-right hate. Meanwhile his pick for Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, stands ready to shape U.S. education policy in the image of the for-profit schools for which she has shilled her entire career.

  • Absolutely, Totally and Completely

    Trump campaigned on "draining the swamp" with some exceptions, he's installing long time politicians, so no draining happening here. His pick of Bannon for a chief strategist means installing a racist, sexist demagogue who pushes a hate-filled agenda. Sessions isn't much better, he's got a lengthy history of racism and was denied a federal judgeship by his own party. His general believes in waterboarding and seems to be anti-muslim. His pick for education doesn't believe in public schools or evolution, so yes, it's very concerning.

  • Trump's appointments are no more concerning than average

    Just because a movie star says that Trump's appointments are concerning, that doesn't make it so. Trump will probably make some appointments that are great, and some that may be less desirable, but concern should not be based on what a celebrity says. Celebrities need to stick to acting and keep their politics to themselves.

  • There are some good appointments.

    Betsy DeVos is an example of a great appointment by Donald Trump. She is a strong conservative. She has been a part of a number of positive initiatives for education in Michigan. She agrees now that common core was a terrible idea. Not all of Trump's appointments are bad. Most are in line with what he stood for when he was running.
