I would not consider anything hyperbole with this administration based on their previous actions and the fact that they appear to really embrace ignorance. From the EPA to Foreign policies, almost every Dept appears to be staffed with amateurs. The appointments appears to be favor or politically driven with little thought as to experience or ability.
This is not a Mom and Pop corner store! No matter how much you love your children or even if their ability exceeded others by a mile, should they be even remotely considered for any positions or be allowed anywhere where Govt decisions are occurring. Just for the message it would be sending. Then you compound it with tweets and bombastic statements and no one appears worried. You appoint Sessions who thinks it is okay to make a joke about Hawaii, which I think is a lie, which he is already very suspect for doing often. His office cannot be seen to make any mistakes whatsoever!! He is the attorney general, not secretary of agricultural research!
It's truly alternative reality and his supporters continue to believe that he is likely to improve. Almost every single action so far of this administration can be deemed to be asinine and emotionally driven, instead of carefully considered and objective. When you begin anything under a cloud, you should keep your head down and play it safe until you have racked up some successes to substantiate other decisions that may be considered outrageous. That's basic common sense. Gorsuch first contribution, kill someone. They are all grandstanders except for Tillerson who is simply more corrupt than Don Corleone.
Seriously, even Putin's Russia took him years to manipulate and he set out to be corrupt. We have 100 days and his intentions were emblazoned from day 1.
