21st Century Wire says…

In a tweet by President Donald Trump on Tuesday he called the Democratic Party out for obstructing the formation of his cabinet. He noted it was a ‘disgrace’ that his full cabinet was not in place and blamed the Democrat Party for ‘obstruction.’

Does President Trump have a valid point?

If we look at the appointments and confirmations of both the Bush and Obama administrations for nominees to lead major departments and agencies there is an undeniable difference when comparing to Trump’s appointees. Trump’s fifth cabinet member was confirmed on Tuesday. Obama had twelve appointments sworn in at this time in his tenure.

The Senate confirmed Education Department lead, Betsy DeVos, on Tuesday after Democrats held an all-nighter with a failed attempt to stop her confirmation. She was confirmed in a vote of 51-50 after two GOP senators joined all the Democrats in voting against her and Vice President Pence cast the vote that broke the tie.

Senate Democrats are planning yet another all night debate into Wednesday in protest of President Trump’s choice for Attorney General, Jeff Sessions. Many people are finding it hard to argue with the President’s tweet as the Democrats certainly appear to be putting up road blocks at every opportunity.
