If you think Mike Pence might hire better people than Trump, think again:

Vice President Mike Pence's pick for his national security advisor, Jon Lerner, has decided against joining Pence's team. Lerner's decision comes after Axios reported earlier tonight that President Trump had attempted to block Lerner's appointment over his anti-Trump work for the Club for Growth during the 2016 campaign.

Or Haley either.

Jon Lerner was 't a national security policy guy for the Club for Growth. He was their pollster.

I'm sure he's a nice guy. But at this level you should have some experience in national security.
