Credit due first and foremost to The Atlantic, whose research I am largely summarizing. Evil ratings are relative. Hopefully this can help you select the people you most want to call about. Basically everyone sucks, but the suck is relative in some places. Note this is only Cabinet secretaries; it’s not all the other appointments.
1) DeVos (Dept. of Ed Secretary): up for final confirmation, probably Monday. EVIL RATING: Very evil. She doesn’t seem to believe in public schools, aside from putting guns in them to protect against grizzly bears. But as others have raised, why is she the one galvanizing the outrage?
2) Sen. Jeff Sessions (Department of Justice): confirmed by Judiciary committee, not yet scheduled for full vote. EVIL RATING: VERY VERY VERY EVIL. The DoJ is one of the departments that I think was most progressive under Obama with regards to civil rights. Jeff Sessions already got denied one government post for his outright racism. Bye bye civil rights.
3) Steve Mnuchin (Dept of Treasury): confirmed by Finance committee, not yet scheduled for full vote. EVIL RATING: The expected amount of evil. He believes in capitalism and profited off the foreclosure mess. He is also the embodiment of everything Trump lied about. Since this seat is the chair of capitalism, though….
4) Rep. Tom Price (Health and Human Services): confirmed by Finance Committee, not yet scheduled for full vote. EVIL RATING: Very evil. He hates Medicare and “entitlement programs” aka programs that take care of people. He’s ultraconservative. We don’t like him, and he doesn’t like us.
5) Dr. Ben Carson (Housing and Human Development): confirmed by Banking, Housing, Human Affairs committee, not yet scheduled for full vote. EVIL RATING: Moderately evil. Unqualified, but he knows it, which is confusing, since he initially said he didn’t want this post and now he’s going for it?
6) Rick Perry (Department of Energy): confirmed by Energy and Natural Resources committee, not yet scheduled for full vote. EVIL RATING: Very evil, as in he doesn’t know what the Department of Energy does and once wanted to get rid of it.
