The U.S. Senate will at some point be voting on Donald Trump’s cabinet nominees, and former Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer doesn’t think any challenges will be made:
I am sure Team Trump has done zero vetting of these nominees, but it almost doesn't matter bc the GOP Senate will be a pathetic rubber stamp

Possible stall tactic?
Dems should filibuster nominees they don't like… https://t.co/fcvQ8bfqS8

Ha! That might have been a good suggestion for the Dems, that is, until then Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in 2013 took power away from the minority:
Thanks to all of you who encouraged me to consider filibuster reform. It had to be done.

Way to go, senator!
You just gave a free pass to the next President you doofus. https://t.co/k4GAZfY3sM

Sound the failhorn in honor of Harry Reid!
You can thank Harry Reid for every single one of Trump's cabinet picks making it through the confirmation process. https://t.co/VM6LkcqXRv

Trump, if he wishes, can put Satan on SCOTUS. Can appoint anyone he wants to his cabinet. Dems are powerless to stop. Because of you. Bravo! https://t.co/RumTHmpYgw
