What the fuck is up with that? Maximize confusion for security? Trump is insane.

The guy submitted his letter of resignation. All resignations are effective at 12:01 p.m. on Inauguration Day per the law.

So you are insinuating that a state's intellect is related to population? By that logic, Alaska and Wyoming have more educated people than New York. That is a non sequitur.
It is also intended to stop toxic policical demagogues from becoming president.

Negative. They are appointed by the president. They submit their resignation every time there is a new president. The new president can accept the resignation or keep them. Trump accepted his resignation. Maybe Trump wasn't aware that the resignation is only customary and doesn't have to be accept it?

Trump also isn't aware that a current tax audit doesn't prohibit one from making one's taxes public. Warren Buffett and other billionaires have been know to release their taxes during audits.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
