Trump Appoints Ratcliffe “Acting” Director of National Intelligence

Trump Appoints John Ratcliffe “Acting” Director of National Intelligence:  After a scandal caused Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Tex.) to pull out of the running for Director of National Intelligence, President Trump announced in a tweet that he will appoint Joseph Maguire as “acting director” of the agency.

Call me crazy, but “Acting” Director of Intelligence seems like the perfect metaphor for a position in this administration.  Hell, any attempt by some Trump appointee to demonstrate what we generally define as “intelligence,” could only be considered “acting” anyway. 

In fact, President Trump now has so many unvetted “acting” directors, it’s almost like just as soon as he appoints someone, they immediately become eligible for their SAG cards.
