President-elect Donald Trump made three major announcements about his Cabinet Wednesday, and liberals are outraged.
Linda McMahon, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, and Retired Marine General John Kelly were selected for high ranking positions, and their resumes clearly represent their readiness for the jobs.
While Trump supporters are cheering on the administration choices, Democrats have been whining since they were announced.
Former wrestling executive Linda McMahon will lead the Small Business Administration. She and her husband founded and built World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. in a multi-million dollar organization.
She stepped down as the company’s chief executive in 2009 and earlier this year launched a joint venture, Women’s Leadership LIVE, which promotes opportunities for women in business and public service.
But instead of focusing on her business success and pro-woman ventures, Democrats are scrambling to explain why they should hate this pick.
She helped turn a small business into a billion dollar enterprise.
Liberals: "She's not qualified for SBA!"

Trump also announced his selection of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to lead the Environmental Protection Agency.
Trump said Pruitt, 48, will restore the EPA’s “essential mission of keeping our air and our water clean and safe” while ensuring that the agency doesn’t spend tax money on an “out of control, anti-energy agenda.”
Pruitt, in a statement released by Trump’s transition team, said Americans “are tired of seeing billions of dollars drained from our economy due to unnecessary EPA regulations, and I intend to run this agency in a way that fosters both responsible protection of the environment and freedom for American businesses.”
While his intentions appear genuine, liberals once again, are furious.
Senator Bernie Sanders tweeted:
Trump's nominee to lead EPA, Scott Pruitt, is a climate denier who's worked closely with the fossil fuel industry. That's sad and dangerous.

Pruitt has been a strong critic of the EPA in the past and has repeatedly sued the organization for pursuing as “activist agenda.”
While environmentalists are up in arms about the “damage” they believe Pruitt will have on the planet, their memory seems a bit foggy about the last eight years.
Dems: Trump's EPA will be a disaster under Scott Pruitt.

Trump added another veteran to his roster with the nominations of Retired Marine General John Kelly for homeland security.
The battle-hardened veteran, who served three tours in Iraq, is the highest-ranking officer to lose a child in combat in Iraq or Afghanistan.Kelly’s son, Marine 1st Lt. Robert Kelly, was killed in November 2010 in Afghanistan.
Trump’s choice, who joined the Marine Corps in 1970, retired this year, wrapping up a three-year post as head of U.S. Southern Command, which spanned some of the more fractious debate over the Obama administration’s ultimately failed attempt to close Guantanamo.
Immigration enforcement is a familiar issue for Kelly. Southern Command, based in South Florida, regularly works with DHS to dismantle immigrant smuggling networks. It has partnered with Immigration and Customs Enforcement in an operation targeting human smuggling into the U.S. and helped with the rescue of children trying to make their way to U.S. borders alone.
Transition officials confirmed Trump’s pick of Kelly on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly before any official announcement.
If confirmed by the Senate, Kelly would take over the nation’s newest federal agency. The department was formed after the Sept. 11 terror attacks to get the U.S. government better-positioned to prevent and respond to incidents.
Kelly would be the fifth person to lead the department, which includes agencies that protect the president, respond to disasters, enforce immigration laws, protect the nation’s coastlines and secure air travel.
Liberal site Slate reacted to the nomination by questioning Kelly’s ability to to run the department, and criticized Trump’s selection of generals with the headline, “Does Trump want to put generals in charge of everything?”
Apparently to liberals, the men and woman who risked their lives overseas to defend our nation’s freedoms aren’t qualified to take care of our security at home.
