Some of the other "best" people Trump has hired are well known. Lynne Patton, HUD regional administrator, previously arranged Trump golf tournaments and arranged Eric Trump's wedding, among other things. Callista Gingrich, just confirmed as ambassador to the Vatican, prepared for this by writing children's books, singing in a church choir -- and being married to Trump ally Newt Gingrich.

"Surely somebody here knows something about infrastructure?"
