GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump said he wanted reality television star and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin in his cabinet if he wins the 2016 presidential election.

Palin responded last weekend that she would like to be energy secretary.

Palin as energy secretary?

The lights are on, but nobody's home.

Several weeks ago, I wrote a column that said Palin should be Trump's running mate. The Kanye West of politics needs the Kim Kardashian of politics.

I also suggested that Trump select his friend, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, as secretary of defense and former NBA player, "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant and North Korea diplomat Dennis Rodman as secretary of state.

If elected, Trump will fill his cabinet with people who know his management style. He would, therefore, draw heavily from his reality program, "Celebrity Apprentice," and from business and politics associates.

Here's the rest of President Trump's cabinet:

Attorney general:

Jeff Sessions. Trump said that the U.S. senator from Alabama and he thought "have a similar thought process." Before Sessions became a senator he was nominated to be a U.S. district court judge. The Senate rejected him because of a long and disturbing history of racism, including praising the Ku Klux Klan and calling a black U.S. attorney "boy" and the NAACP "un-American."

Secretary of treasury:

Bernie Madoff. The jailed financier shares Trump's enthusiasm for trickle-up economics. This involves giving your money to the wealthy, who then keep it.

Secretary of Interior:

Martha Stewart. Fracking can contaminate ground water, release toxic pollutants into the air and increase the chances for earthquakes. If Stewart, an interior decorator and a former Trump business associate, becomes interior secretary, she'll do nothing about the dangers of fracking but at least the noxious air will smell more like cinnamon.

Secretary of Labor:
