    I cant say I blame her - here's a person that supports Trump, but simply cant do the job he wants her to due in no small part to the president's own total misunderstanding of how things work.

    A hugely concerning part about this is that we have yet another Acting cabinet level position in the White House.

    We already had the Secretaries of Defense and Interior, as well as White House Chief of Staff working in Acting roles.

    The fact that these positions have not been vetted by the Senate and that folks working in these roles have been doing so for months is astounding. This is taking away yet another check on the Executive from the legislature and it should be very concerning that Trump has praised acting Cabinet members giving him "more flexibility."
