article by @SharonLNYT has a fantastic description of Trump's #CultureOfCorruption: "Trump looks for people who share his disregard for the truth and are willing to parrot him, 'even if it’s a lie, even if they know it’s a lie....'" /1…
Trump isn't looking for people who are competent or ethical, in fact just the opposite: "They must be 'loyal to what he is saying right now,'...or he sees them as 'a traitor.'”

The result: an administration filled with incompetent, unethical cronies. /2
But it's not just Trump's senior team. The #CultureOfCorruption seeps through the whole government.

At Ben Carson's HUD, there is “a premium put on loyalty over expertise.” Leads to incompetence that wastes taxpayer $ and hurts the most vulnerable. /3…
As the NYT article notes, Trump's #CultureOfCorruption is not surviving first contact with Mueller's team of federal investigators. The rest of Trump's corrupt administration is unlikely to fare much better when they face real oversight and federal investigators themselves. /4
