Trump Team Disgracefulness Power Rankings
Huffington Post - 8 months
Republic Report, which focuses on how money corrupts democracy, has met its perfect mate with the administration of President Donald J. Trump. Trump and his lieutenants personify how money and greed, mixed with angry bigotry, disrespect for constitutional freedoms, and know-nothing ignorance, can really, really corrupt democracy.

Hence, the first edition of Trump Team Disgracefulness Power Rankings, counting down the ten most disgraceful figures in the Trump administration, with some weight given to the entirety of a person’s shameful record, but more credit given to the grotesqueries of the past week. Spoiler alert: Absent an actual homicide committed by a supporting player, we can...
