The fact that the Trump administration hates the civil service so much shows why we need an apolitical civil service that can't be hijacked after each election. And no, I am not actually a civil service employee. But I'm glad the civil service exists.

"These people are sick," Trump says of career civil servants, comparing them unfavorably with American adversaries like China, Russia and North Korea. Reads like another page from the same book that calls journalists the Enemy of the People.

I served 22 years in the Army. When that comes up in conversation and someone says, “Thank you for your service,” I feel uncomfortable, but I just look them in the eye and say, “It was the greatest privilege of my life.”
