Would you hire someone who worked in the Trump White House?
The Trump stink’: White House officials panicked no one will hire them if the president crashes and burns.
Some current White House officials are already worried that they will have a tough time finding work should he crash and burn in the 2020 presidential election.
The Washington Post reports that many Trump staffers and GOP operatives are worried that their reputations have been at least temporarily ruined by their decision to work for the president, who at the moment appears likely to lose the election in less than three weeks.
One Trump campaign staffer acknowledged to the Post that there will be a reluctance in corporate America to risk hurting their reputations by hiring a Trump official.
“There’s just that stigma of being a Trump person,” they said.

If you were stupid enough to think that the job would bolster your credentials then no I don't want to work with you.

I wouldn’t but I am sure they will find work with other Republicans, the Sinclair family or Koch brothers.
Remember, for Republicans party over country.

Fuck them. Plutocrats on Wall Street and in even lower echelons will hire them to lobby or whatever. I'll save my sympathy for people who haven't been spending the last 4 years enabling a would-be dictatorship.

What’s Fox News going to do? Are they going to abandon Trump & just spend all their time demanding investigations if Joe & Hunter Biden? Or are they going to host Trump phone calls every day, or maybe even give him a show? They seem to want to hedge their bets. They’re not sure what to do What if they turn on him before the election turn but he manages to steal it? Then they’re screwed for 4 years. What if they support him & he loses? They’ll be stuck with him wanting to turn Fox into the Trump network.

Don't worry. Robby Mook, Hillary's campaign manager, is still hasn't landed any real job since 2016 and probably will be persona non grata for the foreseeable future as well. The most inept, clueless campaign manager ever.

They will be just fine but no I would not hire, date or befriend anyone who stayed working for Trump.

Political types often have difficulty adapting. I interviewed a number of Obama folks in 2017, and all they could do was talk about their network and connections. They couldn’t cite accomplishments, discuss their actual skills, or relate to the job requirements. I was hiring for regulatory strategy and support jobs and had to pass on all of those candidates.

Can't comment on government jobs, but I will say in many white collar fields in coastal cities -- law, media, consulting, advertising, tech, even finance-- the fact that someone was an outspoken Trumpist is like being on a McCarthy era blacklist. Companies are afraid of lawsuits from employees who are "triggered" by the presence of people they assume to be racists

They will end up as visiting fellows in think tanks at places like Liberty University and schools in Russia, Central Asia and the UAE. In five years, they will be working as lobbyists for foreign oil companies.

Actually, I'm going to keep my resentment open and wide for any known Trump supporter - not just those who worked in the White House.
And to be fair, support staff (cleaners, caterers, maids, security) at the White House aren't hired based on ideological positions or input to policies. They work for the White House, not a President.
I don't think anyone is going to give them a hard time.

Laura Ingraham is already positioning herself to be the queen of the Right Wing radio once Limbaugh croaks. She herself has said so. There's more money in being a free lancer and fleecing stupid far-right/QAnon morons that way than in being a network news anchor.

Also, I think a lot of Trump's orbit will end up the way of Manafort: working for dictators or shady foreign corporations trying to influence elections in different places, and such. They certainly tried it out with success in the world's biggest democracy - rigging elections in places such as Kazakhstan or Indonesia should be much easier. Also, there's always illegal arms trade facilitation. Then, there's OAN, Daily Caller, etc.

If Trump loses he’ll be calling Fox News every single day. What do they do? Let him on the air whenever he feels like calling? Give him his own show? Limit the number of phone calls they take from him? Because every anchor of a Fox News show is going to have to share their entire show with Trump on the phone at some point. I don’t think on-air “talent” will want their shows disrupted all the time by lonely, cranky Trump wanting sympathy.
People say Trump will start his own news network if he loses, but can he? He’ll be subject to scores of investigations. He owes hundreds of millions of dollars. He’ll have to pay lawyers to defend him & lawyers to threaten everybody else. His cult can’t afford his hotels/golf club membership. He won’t be able to have free rallies anymore. His cult will have to pay to attend. Will they?
Will foreign oligarchs bother to pay Trump to to stick his name atop their hotel projects that are pure money laundering operations? Or buy condos in his NY & FL towers? He’ll be yesterday’s news, a mess that attracts the attention in the DoJ, FBI, CIA, NYAG, Manhattan DA, countless wannabe investigative journalists. Every blue state or blue city with a Trump property in it is going to find reason to investigate that property & any tax documents it filed in that state within the last 30 years.
Is Fox News prepared to let such a clown take over their airwaves whenever he has the urge? They might, if it means keeping their audience glued to the screen as Trump tells all the “secrets of the Deep State” he discovered while he was in the White House. And as he rants about Hunter Biden & Joe Biden’s “crookedness” that the Deep State is ignoring. It will help get more republicans get elected in 2022 if they’re told Tales of Trump every day that outrage the trailer lumpen & make sure they get to the polls. Russia & China aren’t going to give up. They will fund organizations, feed Q Anon nonsense, fund rabid candidates who declare they’ll fight the dem pedophiles in DC & across the country. They’ll fund crazy christian nuts who will make fake videos of themselves “freeing the children” from gay democrat atheist pedo sex trade basements across America.
On the other hand, if Trump wins....Fox is fine. They just continue in as usual, Rupert Murdoch is hedging his bets, just like he did when it became clear that Hillary was going to beat Giuliani for the US senate. Murdoch threw fundraisers for Clinton. Then, he funded a mass disinformation campaign against her when she was no longer a Senator (therefore no longer able to make laws that would hurt his business). Rupert is badmouthing Trump right now, but he’s having his anchors support Trump & smear Biden.

If Trump loses in a landslide even Republicans will want to forget he exists.
And setting up a news network is no easy feat, especially now as TV is rapidly shifting from a broadcast model to a streaming model.
Trump is far more likely to set up a talk radio program if he goes that route.

Am I supposed to feel sorry for people who worked for an administration that was entirely based on vilifying human beings based solely on what they are and trying to take down every institution that made this the US? They expect to be hired after they enabled a pyromaniac?

Never. They're pathological liars, lazy and willing to do whatever it takes to make a buck. The women in the administration sleep anyone who crosses their paths in order to keep their jobs, and the men are essentially thieving pimps, like their Big Orange Daddy.
They can go work in Russia or Malaysia toppling governments as someone upthread mentioned, but no decent respectable place would ever consider hiring them.

We are talking about 4,000 people who will have a hard time finding employment. It’s not like there will be a lot of jobs opening on Capitol Hill, because there will be a fair number of out-of-work Rethug Senate staffers who will be in a similar predicament.
The lower-level appointees will be in the worst spot. They will be stained by tRump, yet would not have sufficient experience to qualify for much of anything.
