RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

This is a sandbox page created due to the media attention to Donald Trump's choosing of cabinet staff. It should be noted that most of these choices are merely recommendations which Congress can veto in favour of alternate candidates.


Cabinet officials[edit]

Office Holder Comments
Vice President Mike Pence Religious fundamentalist; hates gay people, in love with a warped concept of "religious freedom", governor of Indiana - and he still seems comparatively sane, when it comes to stuff like going to see Hamilton and not embarrassing himself
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson CEO of ExxonMobil; has previously met Vladmir Putin.
Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin Former Goldman Sachs banker. Worked with George Soros. Weren't they the people Trump supporters wanted /out/ of US politics?
Secretary of Defense James Mattis
Attorney General Jeff Sessions Too racist to become a federal judge, he'll be a great head enforcer Attorney General for the orange deporter
Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke Former NAVY SEAL and JSOC's leader for the Middle East during the Iraq War. Believes climate change to be a serious threat of instability in certain regions known to fall into civil wars after droughts, but doesn't want environmentalist policies in the US to appear overnight. He's anti-abortion as expected and thinks that the ACA is waste that could be spent on deploying a ground army to fight DAESH. Has condemned Richard B. Spencer and the alt-Right of being a gang of anti-semites. Sometimes exaggerates what he's talking about to gain support, such as calling Clinton the anti-Christ in an electoral campaign.
