Ranking the Trump-Administration Appointees, From Bad to Monstrous

Early in the Trump administration, New York's political writers gave themselves the task of picking the absolute worst of the new president's appointees. (In a nod to fairness, Rebecca Traister tried her best to select the least-horrendous individuals, ultimately admitting, "Trump's cabinet picks are each chilling in unique ways; to pick the worst feels like suggesting that the destruction of the planet is somehow worse than the rollback of our human rights or that either of those is worse than the eradication of our public-education system.") Incredibly, despite all the other comings-and-goings in Trump's first year, most of these people are still working for the White House. (Daily Intelligencer/New York)
