    An this is new to this administration? Joe Kennedy, Sr. wasn't made ambassador to Great Britain by FDR for his knowledge of things British.

    You know I just don't understand responses like this. So this kind of behavior is supposed to be right and should be normal? Just because it has been done we should just over look it? There is nothing corrupt here because it has been done before?

    I don't get it.

    Unfortunately, it is common practice. Doesn't make it right, though.

    A corollary is Why are they hounding Trump over his "X action" when the Clinton "Y action" dwarfs it?

    Example:
    "Why are they hounding Trump over his $25K 'donation' to Pam Bondi when the influence peddling done by the Clinton Foundation dwarfs that?"

    "Why are they hounding Trump over his refusal to release his medical records while Clinton is hiding her health problems?"

    "Why are they hounding Trump over his refusal to release his tax records when...."

    But I think you get the idea.

    It may not be right, but it is normal. I also give you a GOP example of Shirley Temple Black. Who was ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia.

    Ok why is it important to point that out without also condemning it?
