A Comment on Mrs Mnuchin

The difference between a competent and fit ruling class and an incompetent, unfit one is that the latter really do believe they deserve their great blessings, and never give one thought to actually serving the people over whom they presume to preside.

Frankly, I suspect this comment is relevant to the entire Trump cabinet, and the President and First Family as well.

One Republican official, who requested anonymity in order to speak freely, said after meeting Trump recently he did not think the president had a firm enough grasp on the nuances of the long-running Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“I don’t think he understands it,” said the official, adding that Trump needed more detailed briefings before leaving on Friday. “I think it’s a very difficult challenge and I hope he’s going to talk to a lot of smart people.”
