Just for kicks, John Kerry is worth roughly $200M.
I'll wait while you condemn his appointment as Secretary of State for being a multi-millionaire.....

Criticizing them because they're rich is ridiculous though. Cabinet selections have almost always been rich guys and gals.
Why is only now an issue? (That's a rhetorical question)

Man, I can't believe PE Trump would have the audacity to nominate all these multi-millionaires for cabinet positions....

I haven't condemned anyone. I am asking questions about whether this is a concern. You clearly state you are not concerned, but you aren't a Trump supporter either. Neither am I, in large part because I question his character and doubt that he will do what he says he will do.
The mega wealth and big bank connections of Trump's appointees looks like more of the same good old boys club stuff coming from a candidate who condemned big banks and promised to drain the swamp. It makes me leery of what might happen. That is not a condemnation. That is scrutiny and accountability. I hope he and his administration prove this is all unnecessary concern.
