Trump's Cabinet Choices As Characters From The Office

Make The Office Great Again.

Oh, Donald Trump. The man who was once apart of the billionaire society in America became our president just a short month ago. Since then, he has chosen a cabinet that is filled with interesting characters to say the least. Since all of them humor me, I thought it was appropriate to poke fun at the irrational characters that he has chosen. Disclaimer: I AM JOKING OKAY.

Ben Carson-Andy Bernard

Andy, like Ben Carson, is unaware of things going on most of the time. Also similar amongst the men is the fact that they are both Ivy League educated and certified "geniuses" but don't really know their way around the office they were put into.

Linda McMahon-Meredith Palmer

The similarities between these two women are simply astounding. Not only are they both women who say outrageous things, they both have a way with hiring big sweaty men to perform staged acts.

Wilbur Ross-Kevin Malone

Kevin and good ole Wilbur boy have a lot in common. First, they are both failures in the game of life, Wilbur in terms of bankruptcy and Kevin in everything he does. Kevin once tried to save a dead turtle that he thought was still alive under his cracked shell. The commerce department under Ross will do the same.

Betsy DeVos-Angela Martin

Betsy DeVos is just a little bit crazy, making her the obvious choice for Angela. Angela is a crazy cat woman, and before Trump appointed her to this job, she probably was, too. (I imagine that she sat in her palace with her gold plated toilets and purebred cats. She doesn't like breed mixing.) At least with Angela, she knows the type of job she is in for, unlike DeVos who has never taught in a classroom before(!!!)

Nikki Haley-Jan Levenson

Nikki Haley is just like Jan. On the surface, they are both the quintessential American girls, yet everyone knows they are both big words that rhymes with "itches." Also, the fact that Michael called Jan Hillary Clinton says that like Trump, they are both afraid of women in power.

Reince Priebus- Toby Flenderson

Reince Priebus, Republican National Committee Chairman, is just like Toby. Not only are both men boring as hell, they both do a terrible job at enforcing the rules. I can't wait to see what Priebus does with Dunder Mifflin the White House.

Steve Mnuchin-Dwight Schrute

Dwight and Steve are alike in the sense that they both have strange ways to obtaining "gratified" positions. Dwight had a goal to become branch manager, and Mnuchin was over a billion dollar corporation, so he must know all about running a branch of the federal government. While Dwight Schrute took over a position that was originated by Michael Scott, Stevie boy is taking over one originated by Alexander Hamilton. I don't know which is worse.

Jeff Sessions-Michael Scott

Sessions is the perfect example of Michael Scott because both men are equally racist. Also, they are both characters that I want to like, but cannot force myself to.

Scott Pruitt-Robert California

Both of these men know how to embody being creepy and denying things, even when there is proof. These men, like denying climate change, are both fantastic at being major a holes.

Mike Pence-Creed Bratton

Creed and Mike Pence both say vile things and have the capabilities to do some scary things despite appearing innocent.

Sometimes it's easy for someone to adopt a "me, me, me" attitude. While focusing on oneself, a person may feel nice in the moment, but serving and helping others will bring lasting benefits. While there are many great reasons to serve and help others, there are three universal truths that resonate with volunteers around the globe.

Austin Alexander Burridge's 3 Reasons to Volunteer:

1. Accomplishment

Often, people fall into a trap of focusing on themselves when they are feeling down. Maybe someone did not get a job they wanted. Or perhaps a person gets dumped by an expected lifelong companion. Maybe someone feels they have underachieved after looking at Facebook and seeing great things a high school classmate has accomplished. When feeling down, helping others is a proven way to improve one's mood and attitude, and it can provide a sense of pride and accomplishment. The act of giving to those in need is an inherently good action and leaves people with a wonderful feeling of joy.

2. Gratitude

One can become more appreciative of life by serving others that have less. Whether volunteering at a soup kitchen, visiting the elderly at an assisted living center, or helping families after a natural disaster, service enables people to be grateful for what they have. Seeing people who have fewer advantages, especially those who are spirited and thankful for small things, allows one to realize just how fortunate he/she is in life.

3. Friendships

Volunteering is a great way to build meaningful friendships, not only with other volunteers but also with those who are served. One of the most profound and fascinating aspects of these relationships is how volunteers will learn from those served and vice versa. As these special bonds are built, they lead to impactful connections that last for years to come.

Of course, these are just a few reasons to volunteer and serve others. One can never go wrong by helping others as opposed to merely focusing on oneself. Volunteering invariably and inevitably contributes to personal growth, development, and satisfaction.

About Austin Alexander Burridge: Helping others has been of paramount importance to Austin, and as a part of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), Austin gave back to the community around him. He also has participated in annual peanut butter drives, The Minnesota Sandwich Project for the Homeless and collected canned goods for local food shelters. Additionally, Austin has a passion for the environment, which he pursued when visiting the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador, and the Amazon Rain Forest while studying at the School of Environment Studies, which investigates ecological systems and their sustainability

Saying You "Don't Take Political Stances" IS A Political Stance

All you're doing by saying this is revealing your privilege to not care politically, and here's why that's a problem.

I'm sure all of us know at least one person who refuses to engage in political discussions - sure, you can make the argument that there is a time and a place to bring up the political happenings of our world today, but you can't possibly ignore it all the time. You bring up the last ridiculous tweet our president sent or you try to discuss your feelings on the new reproductive regulation bills that are rising throughout the states, and they find any excuse to dip out as quickly as possible. They say I don't talk about politics, or I'm apolitical. Well everyone, I'm here to tell you why that's complete bullsh*t.

Many people don't have the luxury and privilege of ignoring the political climate and sitting complacent while terrible things happen in our country. So many issues remain a constant battle for so many, be it the systematic racism that persists in nearly every aspect of our society, the fact that Flint still doesn't have clean water, the thousands of children that have been killed due to gun violence, those drowning in debt from unreasonable medical bills, kids fighting for their rights as citizens while their families are deported and separated from them... you get the point. So many people have to fight every single day because they don't have any other choice. If you have the ability to say that you just don't want to have anything to do with politics, it's because you aren't affected by any failing systems. You have a privilege and it is important to recognize it.

Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "history will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people."

We recognize that bad people exist in this world, and we recognize that they bring forth the systems that fail so many people every single day, but what is even more important to recognize are the silent majority - the people who, by engaging in neutrality, enable and purvey the side of the oppressors by doing nothing for their brothers and sisters on the front lines.

Maybe we think being neutral and not causing conflict is supposed to be about peacekeeping and in some way benefits the political discussion if we don't try to argue. But if we don't call out those who purvey failing systems, even if it's our best friend who says something homophobic, even if it's our representatives who support bills like the abortion ban in Alabama, even if it's our president who denies the fact that climate change is killing our planet faster than we can hope to reverse it, do we not, in essence, by all accounts of technicality side with those pushing the issues forward? If we let our best friend get away with saying something homophobic, will he ever start to change his ways, or will he ever be forced to realize that what he's said isn't something that we can just brush aside? If we let our representatives get away with ratifying abortion bans, how far will the laws go until women have no safe and reasonable control over their own bodily decisions? If we let our president continue to deny climate change, will we not lose our ability to live on this planet by choosing to do nothing?

We cannot pander to people who think that being neutral in times of injustice is a reasonable stance to take. We cannot have sympathy for people who decide they don't want to care about the political climate we're in today. Your attempts at avoiding conflict only make the conflict worse - your silence in this aspect is deafening. You've given ammunition for the oppressors who take your silence and apathy and continue to carry forth their oppression. If you want to be a good person, you need to suck it up and take a stand, or else nothing is going to change. We need to raise the voices of those who struggle to be heard by giving them the support they need to succeed against the opposition.

With all this in mind, just remember for the next time someone tells you that they're apolitical: you know exactly which side they're on.
