Take no prisoners

Because the Trump team plays so rough, so too must the press and analysts.

Expected is that Donald Trump might be locked in a padded room tonight and taking on sedatives to calm him down after his Press Secretary, Sean Spicer made an unnecessary, insensitive, and bone-headed comparison between Bashar al-Assad and Adolf Hitler implying that Assad is worse.

Kellyanne Conway was embarrassment enough. Now, Sean Spicer makes Donald Trump appear even more foolish for having hired these amateurs to speak on his behalf.

Sean Spicer is a professional politician, leveraging his being a Naval Commander. He has no experience approaching the responsibility that he now holds. He is not qualified.

"As Press Secretary, Spicer has drawn controversy for making numerous false or controversial statements, as well as displaying combative behavior with the press." 
By comparison, Kellyanne Conway is a lawyer turned political analysts and publicity manager. She has better qualifications. However, her track record for making reckless comments is on par with Spicer.

That makes one wonder if the problem is that Trump can't hire the right people for the job.
