Who, on the Trump transition team, would you want to have a beer with?
When these guys were running for president, I always thought Newt would be the best guy to have a beer with. I’m sure he’d have something interesting to say.
But now that Stephen Bannon has been added to the team, I think he’d be even more interesting to talk to than Newt.
Pence looks like a very boring guy, I can’t imagine him having anything interesting to say.
Reince Priebus is probably more interesting than Pence, but still far below Newt or Bannon. First thing I’d ask him is “Why did you parents name you Reince? What kind of name is that?”
Trump, himself, doesn’t even drink beer. But if you could drink iced tea with him, I imagine he’d just brag about himself and it wouldn’t be that interesting.
Christie is probably also a braggart, but with less to brag about than his boss.
I imagine that a lot of readers would want to have a beer with Ivanka, but besides looking gorgeous, she’s probably a very boring person underneath. Of all the rich kids interviewed in Jamie Johnson’s movie Born Rich, I thought that Ivanka was the least interesting. This is what I wrote about Ivanka when I reviewed the movie in February, 2008:
Most reviewers like Ivanka Trump the best of all the interviewees. I think she’s awfully cute, but besides that I wasn’t too impressed. What impressed others is that Ivanka is very good at talking in a mature manner; she’s the most guarded of all the interviewees, only saying politically correct stuff. The exception is in one segment where she expresses her genuine outrage at a comment that a regular person in Australia made to her, something about how great it must be for her not to have any problems. It sounded like an innocent faux pas to me, but Ivanka is livid that someone thinks that, because she’s rich, it means she doesn’t have any problems. That fact that she’s so angry about it just demonstrates, to me, that behind her politically correct façade she has a hugely inflated opinion of herself combined with complete lack of desire to understand regular people.
However, Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, would be an interesting guy to have a beer with. He’s probably the smartest guy on the transition team.
