"Talley, who is currently a deputy assistant attorney general at the Justice Department, has already sparked controversy with his nomination. He has only practiced law for three years. He has never tried a case in court. And he was deemed “not qualified” to be a judge by the American Bar Association, making him Trump’s fourth judicial nominee to earn the rare and abysmal rating by the nation’s top legal organization."
Not that this should surprise anybody anymore. Almost every person Trump has nominated for government position so far is completely unqualified for the job, or downright incompetent. The only required passing grade for Trump is loyalty to him and adherence to far-right 'values'.
I would not be surprised if Trump nominated a turnip in a KKK robe. It would certainly be smarter than many of his other nominees.
