President Trump has nominated Josephine "Jody" Olsen to become the next Peace Corps Director. If confirmed by the Senate, Olsen would become the 20th person to lead the agency. Olsen served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Tunisia from 1966 - 1968 and was Togo Country Director from 1979 - 1981. She was nominated by President George W. Bush to serve as Deputy Director of the agency and later served as Acting Director.

Out of character for him to nominate someone with actual experience and dedication. Is he off his meds? Or, more interestingly, is he back on them?

"And we wonder where this political climate comes from."

If you can BOAZ, remember back to the Republican Presidential debates and the way Trump treated the other candidates then you tell where the present political climate came from. Nothing has changed, Trump created the climate, he behaves in ways we have never seen any politician in history behave.

#5,

Danni, the political climate was headed that way no matter if Trump was in office or not. Trump did not create this climate. You liberals can be just as vile as any conservative can.

You better jump back Jack. How many times did you gleefully cheer when someone lambasted Obama. Get off of your high horse Boaz cause it's made of paper mache.

Hardly ever. I used to call him the Messiah sometimes, but never anything disrespectful that someone else called him, not to mention a leader of our enemy.

Don the Con has been using slurs and insults his entire life. Even on his own fellow Republicans. He'll be slurring others tomorrow, the next day and every day after.

What an incredible hypocrite you are.

The fact that you picked it up and continue to dis-respect our President with it shows your lack of Character.

You don't get to play this card while Trump is a childish ------- who disrespects people all the time in tweets and other public statements. If you actually cared about respect you couldn't support Trump.

This political climate comes from Trump and the people who voted such a rancid human being into office.

#11, If you read between the lines, whomever you quoted is saying Trump completely lacks character, and whoever sinks to his level is the same.

One of the Peace Corps' mottos is to be flexible and "go with the flow".

I'd bet good money that Trump had not met her and doesn't even know he nominated her. In fact I'd bet money that he doesn't know what the Peace corps is.

Either that or he doesn't care. Which is probably a good thing.
