Let us engage in a little thought experiment.
Let’s say that Hillary had won the election. And, a couple of weeks before the inauguration, news comes out that she’s going to name Marc Mezvinsky (Chelsea’s husband, therefore Hillary’s son-in-law) as a White House adviser. How do you think Trump supporters would react?
I think it’s pretty obvious many of them would be screaming bloody murder about nepotism and many other things.
Yet, Trump is reported to be naming his son-in-law to a White House adviser’s job, and I’ve not seen a peep out of the Trumpeters.
So, I guess it’s OK with the die-hard Trumpeters for Trump to do this.
But there’s more to this than a double standard. When another Democrat takes the Oval Office — and it will happen at some time, no party ever has a permanent lock on the Presidency — if he or she appoints family members to White House positions, the GOP will not be in any position to complain without being hypocrites.
This is the legacy of Trump.
