Climate-change skeptic lined up to run NASA in this Trump timeline

If commander-in-chief was the sole job description of the president, that would be true, but it is a small part of the overall job of the president of the United States.

If this job included much more than running NASA, like say you had to run the NWS and park service as well, then requiring a space professional would be rather silly since that would be only part of the job. But it is the whole job here, so there's a good argument to be made that he should have a proper space background.
